What Is Evertune?
In short: EverTune is an all Mechanical bridge that uses a spring and a lever for each string to keep each string in tune once it has been tuned. Each saddle pulls on each string with constant tension, naturally maintaining tune through all conditions, even changes in temperature, heavy bending and squeezing chords too hard. EverTune is well suited for the live environment, the recording studio, and any time musicians want to put inspiration and playing above any thoughts about their guitars performance and tuning in any environment.
Jimmy Egypt’s Guitar Repair Shop are proud to be recommended and experienced installers of this system. The Evertune system installation requires the accurate routing of various overlapping cavities in your guitar. This a precise and highly skilled operation requiring great accuracy and technical expertise. We have fitted several of these systems now with excellent results which have to be seen and played to truly experience. I have provided links at the bottom of the page pointing to some of these jobs we’ve carried out with step by step photographs so you can see the results for yourself.We’s be happy to answer any enquiries you have with regard to installing the Evertune system on your guitar.
Below is a video showing the inner functioning of EverTune and highlighting some important points. Then there is a more in depth description of what EverTune is, and what it can do.
EverTune is a simple concept that keeps a string in tune until it wants to be changed. It is a very exciting development in stringed instrument technology. It is a passive, all mechanical system based on trigonometry and some rudimentary physics. Hence it is a new technology that is actually old school, its main component being a spring set in a clever position. The benefits of this old school, all mechanical solution are that it is very rugged and reliable with only one moving part, and with all critical parts being made from high quality steel. It is also relatively reasonable in price, as opposed to servo-based (robotic) systems, and extremely effective. It is distinct from servo-based (robotic) tuner systems: they automatically tune strings for the player, the player tunes the strings with EverTune, EverTune only keeps the strings in the exact tune set by the player. If the point of a string on a stringed instrument is to play a specific note when the player plucks the string, then EverTune makes the string do its job magnificently for the life of the string. People have a lot of fun trying to get strings using the EverTune system out of tune. With an Evertune equipped guitar you are able to take your guitars in and out of hot and cold environments, even turning the tuning machines, and then hitting chords that are still beautifully in tune!
EverTune is less a choice and more an option, ultimately the users will decide based on its strengths which situations and which guitars and other instruments are right for EverTune. For recording, without EVER losing a take based on tuning and with perfect time efficiency and zero tuning between takes, EverTune shines. For pros, who want to be beautifully in tune before and after a crazy solo with five stop bends, and all the way through each of their songs, even with changing temperatures and humidity, EverTune is a must. For people who are doing TV gigs when the back stage is a way different environment than the stage with the lights, EverTune is flawless. For people gigging on the road and at regular shows around town without the funds for a tech yet, they can carry one workhorse guitar with EverTune and be confident that they will always sound good. For amateurs to pros with a stable of guitars, and one guitar in the stable that is a bear to keep in tune, EverTune is phenomenal.
