Yep, this isn't a typo, I need the space and this baby has to go, and soon!! Normal RRP around £89.00 so a huge discount if you're on the look out for a Dunlop Wah.

Schaller New Old Stock (NOS) now available!!

Schaller New Old Stock (NOS) now available!!

We are pleased to announce that we have acquired a large box of NOS Schaller bass and guitar bridges, machineheads, pickup covers and surrounds. These are boxed items and classed as new old stock (NOS). While the parts themselves are in excellent condition, the packaging in many cases is very poor. There appears to be some water damage to the packaging in some cases but as I have said, this hasn't affected the parts themselves. If the packaging is too far gone we will remove the item and place it in a plastic sleeve along with some of the packaging to show it is Schaller. Unfortunately, Schaller don't mark many of their products so this is the only way we can retain provinance.

Some of the bridges are no longer made so they may be difficult to locate so it's worth keeping an eye on our website as we start to add them. Alternatively, give me a call on 01803 297297 or 07791 299 611 to check what we have.

With regards the bridges, we appear mostly to have bass bridges but I have noticed several guitar bridges in amongst them. However, on first look we don't seem to have the popular Schaller 455 guitar bridge. If that changes, I will update this notice to let you know.

Read this 2012 review by Peter Hodgson @ Buy Dr Ducks here


Simply put a few drops of Ax Wax on an applicator patch, spread it around, let it set for two minutes then buff with an appropriate cloth. Ax Wax does not dry, so if it still appears wet or if it feels sticky to the touch, just give it a little more elbow grease – which I found myself having to do the first few times I used it. It doesn’t tint or stain the finish, and it seems gentle enough to use on most finishes. You can use it on the entire guitar, including metal parts such as pickup covers and tuning keys, and on plastic parts such as pick guards and electronics cavity covers. I found it took a bit more buffing to get plastic parts looking their best, but it worked its magic on metal rather quickly.


Dr Duck recommends cleaning around the frets with a tooth brush prior to using Ax Wax on your fretboard. Once you’ve done that, the procedure is much the same as for the body. Just buff it out with an all-cotton polishing cloth afterwards. This will clean the fretboard itself as well as the frets, and make the playing surface feel nice and slick.


Dr Duck recommends treating strings with Ax Wax immediately after putting on a fresh set, to prolong their life to almost as long as that of treated strings while retaining the natural tone of untreated strings. It can also be used on strings that have started to go dead, or if they’ve gone squeaky. And it doesn’t seem to make as bad a “fingernails down the blackboard” sound as any other string conditioner I’ve tried.


You can also use Ax Wax to increase the efficiency of string contact points – ie: the bridge saddes, the nut, or a Bigsby roller bar. Lube these points up with a small cloth or a Q-Tip and you’ll decrease the friction at these locations when the string moves. This is invaluable for helping a Bigsby return to perfect pitch, or for those who perform behind-the-nut bends on a Telecaster, or for those who use light strings, but it’s something which can benefit any guitar player.


Floyd Rose feel creaky? Fine tuners not turning like they should? Tuning keys sticking? Apply some Ax Wax to these areas with a Q-Tip to increase their efficiency. Your Floyd will get its flutter back. This is a criminally overlooked aspect of proper guitar maintenance – how many players even stop to think about lubricating their tremolo posts? But due to its all-in-one nature, Ax Wax allows you to take care of this crucial step while you’re polishing your finish, conditioning your fretboard, cleaning your strings and buffing your metal bits.


There’s really nothing Ax Wax can’t do when it comes to cleaning or lubing your guitar. And not to sound all ‘infomercial segment on morning TV’ but it really does take the place of half a dozen different products, it’s inexpensive and most importantly of all, it works.
