AXN™ Disruptor™ Boutique Sustain Blocks - TO FIT FLOYD ROSE® TREMOLOS

Did you know that ALL other aftermarket floyd rose type sustain block are made overseas? Also did you know that even Floyd Rose brand brass sustain blocks are made in China from terrible alloys?  Our AXN™  Sustain Blocks are 100% manufactured in the USA from American metals and USA made custom exotic alloys. We also USA a local aerospace machine shop to machine our sustain blocks to exact tolerances.!

AXN™ Disruptor Brand Boutique Sustain Blocks are NOT a "casting" or "casted".  They are machined from Our Own Personal Choice Of Alloy.


AXN™ Disruptor Sustain Blocks are much thicker than Floyd Rose Brand "cast" metal blocks. No matter what Floyd Rose and other manufacturers say a fatter, thicker, machined metal BIG block equals out to more frequency control than their "cast" thin metal blocks. For Example our Model-84' sustain block is machined in the USA from an special steel allow with special metallurgical characteristics.

Each AXN™ Disruptor Sustain Blocks is a hand crafted boutique sustain block machined in small quantities from our choice blend of metal alloys. AXN™ Sustain blocks have our own unique tonal characteristics. Our tone changes are much different than the tone changes other aftermarket blocks produce. Many times other aftermarket blocks actually produce worse sustain than a stock Floyd Rose block because they are "cast" sustain blocks. 

Because of the very high cost to manufacture these boutique sustain blocks we only produce a limited amount of AXN™ Disruptor Sustain Blocks twice a year. We use a local aerospace machine shop to machine them from our choices of boutique metal alloys.

We manufacture our sustain blocks firstly to use the blocks in our AXN™  custom guitars. The blocks that are left is what you see for sale here. The raw metals we use to make our blocks prove to be a costly investment for us year to year but we know the difference. We have experience with metal machining specifically aerospace mold makers and aerospace machining shops ( having worked in that industry for decades ). We also learned much about the hardness of different metal alloys and heat treating used in the aerospace industry. This experience made us very familiar with exotic metals including tool steel, powder metallurgical steels, stainless steels, and specialty alloys such as the type available from this Exotic Steel Supplier

For example a common brass sustain blocks from some other suppliers will only offer a very minor gain in sustain virtually un-noticeable to the human ear. Where as our sustain blocks, because they are machined from choice metal stock, will improve the tone and provide an extremely noticeable gain in sustain. We speculate our blocks give a 5-7 times improvement in tone and sustain as the best aftermarket blocks you find from other suppliers.
