This site basically sells a "Blackmore booster", but features a good article on the man and his gear over the decades.

Graph Tech String Saver saddle pieces. I have them, and their string trees, on my Strat. I find them excellent. The company produces a large variety of guitar accessories.

Got some Graph-Tech saddles on one strat, they seem fine enough to me, they came with the guitar, so someone fitted them before I got it. Don't know fi they are string savers or not, but they are black rather than chrome. In some respects that guitar has a more mellow sound, perhaps down to the saddles. I have various graphite nuts made by them as well on some other strats.

I see. The nut of my Strat is traditional, the tech I use recommended the black G-T saddles and string trees when the originals had grooves worn in them. I don't know if there's any other difference bewteen the chrome and all-teflon ones but looks. The string itself rests on the teflon in both cases.

An interesting point about sound. Never really thought about that, I just found the feel became smoother and the guitar stays in tune better.

I only recently heard about this book:

#]Analog Man's Guide to Vintage Effects: The Ultimate Analog Stompbox Reference Book

EDIT: Just received the book. It's brilliant!
