Genuine Zero Glide ZB-9 Blank nut replacement system for Banjos/Mandolins
Gold Tone Zero Glide Blank replacement nut system ZB-9 for Banjos & Mandolins
(This is an unslotted nut and will require slotting before use)
The Zero Glide Replacement Nut System is an entirely new, patented system that borrows the "zero fret" concept to reduce string contact in the nut by up to 93%, increasing tuning stability, playability, and open string tone. It only takes a few minutes to install with absolutely no permanent alteration to your instrument.
The Zero Glide Nut System improves upon the "zero-fret" concept by combining a specially-made nickel-silver fret with a patented bone nut that’s designed for fitting into the stock nut slot of any fretted instrument. Zero Glide provides four frets of graduated heights to assure you perfect action at the first fret. This breakthrough system decreases friction at the peghead by 93% for greatly increased tuning stability by allowing the string to return to its original pitch following bends or aggressive playing techniques. An added benefit: open-string tone becomes the same as fretted-string tone!
