A whole new way of approaching the art and science of keeping instruments in tune and intonated
BRIAN "HEAD" WELCH
"I love Ibanez, I've been with Ibanez for a long time. A couple key people that we worked with for a lot of years left. They were great, but I figured 'you know what? I feel like that since that feels different over there and new, I just want to try something new.'
So I went to ESP. It's funny because I think Munky brought it up, the ESP thing, so it's his fault.
Did they approach you?
No, I approached them: I was working with Nick Raskulinecz on our latest album. Me and Munky and him were doing guitars and talking... and what I was wanting was the EverTune.
There's all kinds of different possibilities that I had, but they told me that ESP were the forerunners with the EverTune. So I just called them up and I heard great things, they have a great reputation. So I just talked about everything and this is what we came up with. It's got the EverTune on there, some Fishman pickups and it's just a really cool guitar.
Dude, and it just doesn't go out of tune, man. EverTune is amazing. I love it, it's changed my life."
quoted from interview with Guitar Interactive Magazine
"I'm not sure if I'm OCD in the clinical sense, but it's the small things that will piss me off... and tuning is not a small thing.
Typically, as a singer, if things aren't resonating perfectly in tune, I have a hard time maintaining my own pitch or just getting my mind off the fact that 'oh fuck, I'm out of tune'.
EverTune solves that."

"The EverTune bridge is such a cool innovative product.
In the 20+ years I've been with ESP, I have not seen anything come along that was this revolutionary, so it's a big deal. It's a really cool sleek looking bridge, if you look at it, you wouldn't really know that there's all this cool crazy technology going on under the hood.
It's all mechanical, which is really why I like it. And it works.
The additional benefits of the EverTune bridge is accurate intonation over the entire fingerboard. When strings loosen or stretch, it's all compensated by the EverTune bridge and it stays in perfect tune. Temperature and humidity also can affect any guitar, your neck may bow or back-bow, if you're in a cold or hot room, the EverTune will always be compensating against that and will keep your guitar in tune at all times."

"The Evertune is an advancement in the guitar that I never imagined previously could be possible. Having recorded 7 albums in the past with Trivium - I can say that historically - having to constantly tune guitars during tracking is what would always slow down workflow and stifle the vibe.
When going into recording our 8th album, our producer Josh Wilbur suggested that I install Evertune bridges on my guitars to stabilize intonation and eliminate having to tune entirely.
I did not believe him at first.
After outfitting my guitars, our entire album's rhythm guitars were done in two short days. Typically an album takes about 5 days with tuning and intonation adjustment.
It's not much of an adjustment either; in fact, I find that with the Evertune, I can finally pick freely. I was able to pick harder than ever, and really dig into the guitar with the bridges. On our latest record, you can hear that - you can hear the intensity of the right hand because I was free from worrying about striking a note too far out of pitch.
I am hooked, I'm not going back to conventional bridges in-studio, or on-tour. I feel like I'm finally playing more like me than ever."
“It all started with my first guitar, a Les Paul. I always had tuning issues with it. Over time, I was getting obsessed with tuning and it started affecting how I play and practice. I was more into tuning than in playing. And when I played, I was always trying to hear if the guitar is still in tune than listening to my actual playing.
Also, I would resist to bend in a certain situation knowing that eventually the guitar will get out of tune. When practicing it was just annoying but live it was really stressful. It affected my learning and slowed down my progress as a musician."
"When I first heard about EverTune, I could not believe it. I thought it was fake. But, I asked my luthier if he had heard about that system. And he confirmed that it worked. So, I decided to give it a try."
"His name is Laurent Rufi of LRG Guitares (lrg-guitares.ch). He did a great job and spent hours on that project."
"I could not be happier. It really works. It’s all mechanic (no batteries). It’s fantastic. I can spend my whole concentration on the music, not on tuning. It’s a game changer. Especially live, it's a relief. I do not have to worry if the guitar is in tune or not because it is.
When others have to tune between songs, I am always ready. I am playing with more confidence and determination. I bend more and better. I am improving faster my guitar playing. The system is worth every cent.
I was so happy how the system worked on the LP, that I had also my Tele and Strat equipped with EverTune.
"I love this Tele, it is my main guitar now. I love the shape, the look and how it feels. And it’s so simple. Love it. Since I am also playing in a (hard) rock cover band I changed the pickups to humbuckers, SD Hot Rails, sound great. I reversed the control plate, so now the volume pot is close to my right hand and easier to access when playing. It’s the perfect guitar for me and always stays in tune."
"Even if you need to put a capo on (which does not happen often but sometimes) it stays in tune. Also when you need to go to drop D for a few songs, it can easily be done lowering just the low E string (you loose the benefit of ET on this string but keep it on all other strings). Once I tried to go drop D on a strat (without ET) it took me several minutes to retune all the strings. With ET this is much faster."
"The Evertune Bridge System is an evolutionary revolution of science & technology that allows all guitarists the freedom and privilege to always be in tune & in perfect intonation.
On stage or in the studio for pros & beginners this bridge is not only sleek but very functional. Makes guitar playing fun without the worry of going out of tune. 🤘 😈 🤘
Thank you Cosmos & Herbert for all your support! A Big Mahalo to the Evertune gang and all you Evertune players out there in the world!!!"
Guitars are delicate, temperamental pieces of wood. They’ve got their good days, where they stay in tune and sound great, and then they’ve got their bad days, where they have “fret buzz” , bad intonation and ultimately, they sound like shit.
Even the most top-end guitars are bound to be all out of whack once in a while, especially if they’re in a trailer on the road, subjected to varying weather conditions.
Since I started using the Evertune bridge a few years ago, I haven’t had to deal with any of that bullshit.
Hell, some nights I forget to check my tuning before I hit the stage. Not once, ever, has my guitar been out of tune in the middle of a show, after I set it where I want it.
There is nothing on the market like this. I can assure you that it will save you time, and improve your playing. You won’t be disappointed.”
"I have been using the EverTune bridge on my two 39 Custom Guitars since 2013 and still using them for all of my live performances.
Always in tune no matter how hard my picking and riffing is.
My band, Karma Violens, has shared the stage with significant bands such as Amon Amarth, Fear Factory, The Black Dahlia Murder, Heaven Shall Burn, Arch Enemy, Rotting Christ, Septic Flesh, The Ocean, Darkest Hour etc., but the highlight was to open the mighty Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Opeth and Firewind at a major festival. So EverTune is my only choice.
Besides the live performances, as a guitarist I want my recordings to be perfect in tune. Thatʼs why I use the EverTune bridge on all “Karma Violens” albums. "
"Trying out my new partscaster with Evertune I installed myself! :D
Absolutely love it!
An old trusted Fender neck (refretted with stainless steel frets), a Northwest body and Irongear Steam Hammer pickups. They are THE tightest pickups I know, right now I'm putting them in all my guitars. I prefer them above a bunch of different Duncans, Dimarzios and EMGs I've tried throughout the years."
FEBRUARY 2017: "I'll be the first to admit, I didn't give ESP Guitars the credit they deserve. This guitar rivals my #lespaul and #sg in tone and playability and the #evertune bridge is revolutionary. Welcome to the family."
UPDATED MARCH 2018: "My new Telecaster has arrived. I got my first Evertune guitar about a year ago after battling tuning issues on stage for years. Long story short, I dont plan on buying another non-Evertune guitar. The hype is real."
"Since I started to play guitar, I've always been very attentive to the intonation and tuning of my Instrument. I tried different setups, various bridges and systems but I never felt satisfied. When you're on stage, delivering a performance worthy of note is difficult if you don't feel safe at most.
I've always had this insane fear of not being granted. With EverTune, my problem are gone. When it's set-up properly, this innovative bridge gives a flawless performance with your sound, intonation and tuning.
The various settings that can be applied on the EverTune make it the most promising of flat mount bridges in the world. Try it and you will never go back!"

"To be honest with you, the Evertune system was a bit baffling at first. I was skeptical to say the least.
What I came to learn during the process of tracking guitars for our upcoming album was mind blowing to say the least. Not only does the Evertune system greatly increase the efficiency whilst in the studio, it allows the player to well, just play. That is where this system shines. As a guitar player and song writer, my main concerns are playing well and crafting a well structured piece of music. The Evertune allows just that. It eliminates any and all concerns over tonal issues brought about by tuning and intonation problems. To say that I’m stoked about my Evertunes is an understatement.
If you haven’t tried the Evertune, I strongly encourage you do. You won’t be disappointed."

"Tuning and intonation issues is always a common problem during a guitar recording session. Evertune is without any doubt the one and only solution to this!!
The Washburn Evertuned guitars are my go to instruments for recording and allow me and any other Artist i am working with, to focus only on performance and nothing else. Magic happens when inspiration hits your door and last thing you want, is an out of tune instrument.
Evertune equals Forever In Tune. Literally outstanding!"

"Just finalized initial tests for the new V25 guitar family variant with EverTune bridge by Evertune. First I tuned it with digital tuner and then played heavily 1 hour and kept guitar overnight in case. In the morning I also played 1 hour heavily and measured the tuning again with digital tuner - no deviation in tuning at all - in tune - this is AMAZING!"
(a few days later)
"Like charts ? Here's one illustrating tuning stability of Evertune bridge in V25-ET guitar. Not a scientific study but simple 12 day 1 measurement per day with Peterson StroboSoft. Guitar was played daily basis and used also in band training sessions. Chart shows that every string tuning deviation stays pretty much in the pipeline plus/minus 1 cent which is a great result."

"Here's some of the main guitars Bucky and Josh are currently using in studio and live. @buckcharles custom homemade Explorer and @joshgtrkop ESP LTD's with EverTune bridges"
"I approve of EverTune. It survived the gig. That guitar just survived a gig."
"The Evertune bridge is the most advanced electric guitar upgrade/innovation invented in the last 40 years+. I own two Evertune guitars and once I change the strings, set the intonation and tune it up, it will stay in tune until I decide to change the strings.
It's just amazing! I really like my EC's they play and sound amazing 🤘🏼 👊🏼 🎸 🔊 These guitars really are awesome! I like mine very much!"
"Finally found a new # 1. This Evertune guitar bridge is literally the most inspiring piece of kit out there. There has been a 20 degree temperature shift and 3 days since I last tuned this axe and every string was in TO THE CENT. Playing with a capo is dead on. I am floored and will be installing one of these on every electric I own."

"The LP has been one of my go to guitars lately. Sounds insane!
The other beast has been my go to for a lot of the new State Line Empire songs. Gary Brawer did all the custom work in this and well all my guitars. You can hear this one on our new vid 'Cut'!!"

"The family is growing! Thanks to @Evertune for hooking Paul up with a beautiful bridge for his Les Paul Custom, and Nathan at Brighton Guitar Workshop for his excellent install and refinish job, as always!!!!!!
We’re also delighted to announce we now endorse @jerichoguitars and @bareknucklepickupsofficial!! Although you can't see it, Paul's ecstatic behind his amazing new Walnut Fusion 6 customised with Ragnarok and Cold Sweat pickups, with EverTune bridge."
"After spending weeks watching probably EVERY review of the Evertune on YouTube, I pulled the plug and had my rep install an Evertune on this American tele. I'm happy to report it wasn't just "too good to be true." In fact, this thing's an absolute game changer. It arrived Friday, I checked the tuning out of the box (it was perfect). Practiced for a couple hours Saturday. Still perfect. Played all morning Sunday at my church (3 services). Got home and checked the tuning. Hadn't changed.
Other bonuses- didn't notice a weight increase after the Evertune was added, the intonation is perfect, and the playability didn't change whatsoever.
Well done, Evertune. Well done."
(a few months later)
"Still can’t believe the Evertune works as good as it does. I check the tuning on my tele every couple months, almost as a joke. Been playing guitar for 20 years. There hasn’t been anything as significant as the Evertune for me in my musical life!!
If anyone has questions for a “regular guy” Evertune player, I’m happy to help too! You can find me though the Evertune facebook page"
"My Fender Telecaster was under the knife yesterday in the trusted hands of my dude Daniel Patterson. He routed out the body, and installed a brand new Evertune bridge in it for me. I can't get over how clean and precise his work is. It looks like the bridge came stock from the factory on the guitar.
The bridge itself is ACTUALLY unbelievable! It keeps the tuning of the guitar perfectly stable no matter how hard I pick or how much I bend the strings. It's going to save SO much time tracking guitars on upcoming projects, and that equates to more time spent getting incredible guitar tones and trying different amps and mics. I'm beyond thrilled.
Thank you to Evertune for making such a rock-solid product."
“I have to say that I love this freaking thing more and more everyday. The honeymoon is not over, in fact it just keeps getting better! I was very excited at first about the EverTune technology, 'cause I've been battling for years with guitar´s tuning & intonation problems in studio + live. When you've been playing guitar for over 20 years and being involved around music everyday, your ear gets so trained and you hear even the slightest out of tune notes and it's very annoying to me. I think the guitar is a "stone-age" instrument, even still today. There hasn't been many innovations done with it since the birth and it was about time that someone did!
We just came from the 70000 Tons of Metal cruise. We had really long flights from dry & cold Finnish weather to hot & moist Miami. As everyone who tours around the world knows that weather and temperature changes affect a lot and messes with guitars. Also my guitars had rough treatment at the airports, but when we reached our destination the tuning was perfect! Now that I've had some real world experiences with the EverTune, I can safely say that this thing is solid and I can trust it.
Other thing what I love about the EverTune is how easy it is to change the guitar strings with it and adjust the intonation, string height (for each string separately) and of course the tuning. Some people may fear a little bit that this is a complex system, it is not. It´s a very easy, simple and elegant system. I've always sucked adjusting guitars (I just know how to play them), but with the EverTune it´s easy.
Guitars are very temperamental, they don´t like weather changes, different string tensions and million other things. So they live with all the changes all the time and I hate it! To put it simply, the intonation sucks in guitars! But the EverTune helps with that enormously. For me this thing is a no brainer. I´m gonna put it in all my guitars from now on.
I want to thank the EverTune guys from the bottom of my heart, they have really innovated something special which is helping me a lot in my work and I´m falling in love with the guitar all over again.”
"Evertune is a life changing and truly revolutionary invention. No more fear and loathing of inevitable and constant tuning issues at shows and recording sessions. Now I'm free to play without worrying about radical bends, picking too hard, jumping around and generally abusive playing. In turn, freeing me up to concentrate on creating music and entertaining the audience. Now before a show or recording session I put on a new set of strings, fine tune it and I'm good to go til' I put another set of strings on. So do yourself a favor and make the leap and EverTune up. You won't regret it. Once you EverTune you'll never go back!"

"A perfectly tuned guitar with a clean vintage sound is the best tool for a recording session"
"I would never have a guitar without an EverTune by this point. End of story! Just got a new guitar, and as soon as I can I will be getting an evertune put in it."
"I have to admit I was skeptical about the EverTune Bridge but I'm glad I took the chance and got one. This is going to be a game changer for future guitarist. When I play live, I think about horrible things I'd like to do to people. I beat the hell out of my guitar... Now I have the freedom to do that without my strings going out of tune at all. It's insane, perhaps even black magic or alien technology but I love it."
Lord of War
"Wanted to extend a huge thanks for your product, I just spent the last 3 weeks hitting my headstock on my drummer's cymbals - every night I put as much of a beating on this guitar as possible, nothing could shake the tuning. Possibly the best gear investment I've ever made. ❤️ you guys"
"Just got the LTD MH-1000ET-FM yesterday and I had a feeling I'd like the Evertune bridge....BUT HOLY HELL this thing is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Thank you guys so much for coming up with this, for real...it's removed all the annoyances of playing guitar.
Setup was insanely easy, to not worry about pitch shifting if you bend a string a hair while doing chords is such a relief, being able to adjust the tension needed for string bends is awesome, to play hard on it for hours and it still be perfectly in tune is mind blowing.
I can't say enough great things about it. It should be like seatbelts in cars, every single guitar should have an Evertune bridge Standard. Great job!!!"
"Took its sweetass time for me to find a seven string with an Evertune but here it is. And I love it! To a hardcore FR fan it still feels like coming home."
