Obbligato™ designs, manufactures and offers products that significantly enhance the sound of stringed instruments.
Our current focus is acoustic guitar saddles, guitar bridges and nuts, violin bridges and guitar picks.
Many of our products feature the use of our unique and patented Black Diamond™ (BD) material.
This material is a very specialized form of carbon. There are many forms of carbon ranging from graphite to diamond. Black Diamond carbon is not graphite, nor is it a carbon-fiber composite, versions of carbon typically used for musical instruments. It is a highly engineered form of carbon requiring specialized equipment to produce. While, unfortunately, expensive to produce, the random, fine grain structure of Black Diamond carbon provides a very efficient means to create or transmit desired string harmonics of a musical instrument.
Our products are produced in the U.S.A.
