Shubb: Made of solid stainless steel, Shubb guitar steels are designed by musicians with the special demands of today’s playing styles in mind. They offer unique design features not found on any other bars, including cutaway ends for improved control, and a semi-bullet tip which facilitates movement across the strings.

Stevens: The Stevens Steel Tone Bar is the original, used by the likes of Mike Auldridge, Josh Graves and Fred Travers. Chromium plated for excellent tone and durability, with a contour design for comfortable fit and precision control. The Stevens Guitar Steel has been the standard of Hawaiian Guitar and bluegrass professionals for over 70 years.
