Only bone should be used for nuts.

Only bone can give you the proper tonal characterics that you require for your style of playing.

Use whale bone for a fluid style.

Use tiger bone for a more aggressive sound.

Use chicken bone for plucking.

Use mammoth bone for a heavy bottom.

Use wolf bone for playing Duran Duran.

If someone ever finds a partly evolved animal this would be ideal for eclectic styles.

the type of nut you choose only affects open strings. Once you start fretting, the nut is of no consequence to the tone of the guitar

I understand that.
What about the bridge?
It also has a influence on tone, n'est-ce pas?
Yes the bridge saddle material will affect tone-whether bone, ivory or TUSQ is a matter of preference.
