After several years of research including countless iterations of weighted clamps, physics experiments, and many hours of work on lathes and CNC machines, Saddle Rider Music introduces the “Wolf Rehabilitator Set” which includes the following array of wolf-taming tools in a boxed set:
- Small top: 2.1 grams
- Medium top: 3.4 grams
- Heavy top: 4.5 grams
- BR bottom: 2.9 grams
- S3 and S4 bottoms: 2.6 grams
All clamp weights are fully interchangeable.
Magnetic Wolf Tone Resonator
- With high-quality wool pads, carefully selected for tone
- Safe installer included
Button Clamp Combinations
Their patent-pending design features fully interchangeable tops and bottoms, allowing incremental weights ranging from 4.7 to 7.3 grams. By balancing most of the weight towards the top of the string, these clamps control wolf tones more effectively than traditional “wolf eliminators.” The brass and two different types of stainless steel bottoms offer three choices for each of the three sizes of top (nine combinations in total). Attaching the buttons to the G or C string allow many frequency options to control wolf tones and manage an instrument’s tone and response.
The perfect option for any situation!
After struggling to control the pack of wolves on my cello with many other eliminators, I'm so happy I purchased this set! Bottom line: they work very well. The two styles of eliminators that come in the set - button and magnet - allow me to easily control my wolves depending on the humidity, how my cello is generally feeling, and the rep I'm playing. Initially, I just put the medium top with the S3 bottom on my G string, and BOOM: wolves gone. I thought, 'why would I need all this other stuff'? But that's the beauty of the Saddle Rider system: you can really fine tune your approach so you get both the wolf elimination you need and the tonal adjustments you want. In the currently humid Chicago summer, I'm using the heavy top and the S3 bottom on my C string to get a smoother response from the bottom end of the cello and also quicken the response while eliminating my wolves.
