Our custom light action spring to fit the Oscar Schmidt 21 chord assembly or any instrument which uses a similar \"comb\" type spring retention. That would include many luthier built instruments. Dimensions are 1/2 high with a generous 1/8 throat size. Stiffness is about 25% less than standard factory springs. Height is 1/8 less.
USED US vintage - Oscar Schmidt item BRIDGE PINS. This is the part that sits in front of the tuning pin and retains the height of a string and ends the vibrating length. Item head style may not be an exact replacement but can be set to a height that will function properly.
All the parts needed to change an instrument to the Oscar Schmidt 21 chord system. Special order item. We do not maintain stock on this version of the kit. See the other item for the blank button version with uncut felt, usually in stock.
All the parts needed for the fine tuner assembly installation...base, cams, screws. The lockwashers and mounting screws included should be discarded as the wrong size or type. Our enhanced version includes the better hardware.
Used chord bar holder in brown color and style to fit older 15 chord units. New holders are only available in black, so we collect these used pieces to replace broken parts. Includes cap strip and screws and renewed padding under cap strip.
This is the version of the conversion kit that has uncut felt and has blank buttons. This set is useful when installed on a custom string layout or when the kit will be used for spare parts. It also settles the question of whether the precut chords will align properly with the strings. The customer will ensure that by cutting the felt personally.
