"I 've been playing 2 teles that are my slide guitars. 1 of them has brass saddles and the other one is loaded with the KTS Titanium saddles. The difference between the two is amazing. the titanium saddles have a lot more clarity and sustain but don't sound harsh at all, just clearer. Definitely a cool element in a live situation where you need the definition and cut. The KTS Titanium saddles added a wonderfully clean, defined sustain to my tone...Love them!"
