Steel or brass? Any opinions?
I just had a mate who machined one up for me in Stainless Steel 316.
Heavy,but worth it.
Would not dare say its better though,as most people around here would disagree,being that every1 is a professional.....
But i can say that it does mute it a little bit unplugged,but when plugged in,its incredible.
But i would not say it better.

i have some of both
the brass dampens the sound too much for me. so stainless steel it is. people confuse the fact that brass is pretty balanced as far as frequency response as opposed to steel that has a definite spike. but brass is so much softer, it reduces the resonance.
Sounds like a place to try one of the phosphor bronzes. Similar density, much higher modulus
mine is made of wood... and it sounds amazing

There is no best, it is a taste thing. One man's spiky is another man's cutting, one mans muddy is another mans warm. The most prudent way to proceed is to make sure the general characterestics of a material are the direction in which you wish to go and experiment from there.

But yeah, I think it's up to the guitarist...I feel there advantages to both.
that's what I was getting at, yeah...
