Big Bends LLC was founded in 2001.
In an “obsessive quest” to keep his guitars in tune, Jeff Massey (company founder) realized “friction” was the cause of virtually ALL tuning (pitch drift) problems. He found going out of tune while playing the guitar (or any stringed instrument) is almost always the direct consequence of “friction” acting upon the “fulcrum/pivot points of the floating bridge and the string bearing surfaces of the bridge, nut and string guides.
After 10 years of experiments and improvements in both lubricants and applicators, the Nut Sauce Filled Groove Luber, guitar tuning lubricant, was created. Today, Big Bends is still on a quest to bring the “Tech in a Tube” to every stringed instrument Artist, Builder and Repair Tech who has ever struggled with getting and staying in tune and breaking strings.

Keeping your guitar tuned perfectly can be tricky, even at the best of times. There are many things that can kill the tone of a guitar and one of the worst of these is grease or residue building up on the strings. Add to this, the strings sticking in the nut, bridge, and string guides, as well as broken strings, and you have a guitar that grates on your nerves like a blunt saw.
Fear not, though…We have a solution for that.
Big Bends Gem-Tone String Wipes are the best way to remove grease and residue, while extending string life and tone. Made from state-of-the-art clean room wipes. This material is 100% non-linting (won’t leave any fibers on your strings) and has more friction than cotton for better and deeper cleaning. Each wipe is pre-moistened with a new fresh smelling, non-foaming and highly effective cleaning solution. Just pinching the string and wiping it cleans both the top and bottom of the string, removing dirt and grease while leaving nothing behind. Made in the USA.
Joe Satriani says…”Big Bends Gem-Tone Wipes should be in everyone’s guitar case. They will keep your strings sounding the way they should and help them last longer too.”
Nut Sauce is a special state-of-the-art lubricant that is the secret sauce to keeping in tune and eliminating string breakage at all times. This special nut sauce is applied to the guitar’s nut, string guides, bridge, saddle, and pivot points.
Big Bends Nut Sauce is the perfect way to precisely apply lubricant at the exact place you need. Your guitar is guaranteed to remain in tune, no matter how hard you strum the strings and yank the whammy bar. Used and trusted for over 20 years by professionals the world over!
