Welcome to Crimson Guitars https://www.youtube.com/user/CrimsonCustomGuitars?sub_confirmation=1
In this episode, Ben discusses various modern and traditional guitar nut materials and how each material affects the tone of the guitar on which it is fitted. Nothing to do with tone is an exact science but Ben outlines a few general rules to apply when considering the material for your nut.
0:05 The part different materials play in the tone – relatively small
1:55 Discussion of the different materials
7:33 Soft material gives a warmer tone but does not sustain well
Hard material gives a brighter more sustained tone
7:46 Much more important is the quality of the fitting, cut, set up
