Hipshot Hardware

Hipshot was founded in 1982 by Dave Borisoff and started out from Dave inventing hardware for his bandmates. His first invention was the Hipshot String Bending System to give you the same claim to twang without any alterations to your guitar whatsoever. Not long after that he created a D-tuning mechanism for his band’s bass player.
