The First New Design for Tremolo in 30 Years
The newly patented Trem King is a vibrato system for guitar that
uses a fixed bridge concept. The bridge plate is fixed to the body
of the guitar. The saddles are fixed to the bridge and do not move.
The intonation point and string height never change as with many
other designs. All the action happens inside the guitar. And the
best part is nothing happens until you touch the vibrato bar.
The bar inserts directly into the tone block for the best
leverage. The tone block pivots back and forth to provide the
vibrato action. The Trem King is able to act as a fixed bridge
because the critical balance of string tension versus spring
pressure combined with the patented Tension Bar. The tone block
only moves when the vibrato bar is moved. When you use the vibrato
bar, the tension bar brings the tone block back to the same Zero
Point time after time. Two springs are normally all that are
necessary to provide this balance. This allows for very light (2
lbs.) pressure to actuate the vibrato. The feel is precise and
Get A Grip. Really...
Along with the exclusive Grip Tip Vibrato Bar that has an
adjustable rubber tip, the Trem King is a joy to play. There is no
locking nut necessary on the Trem King. You can drop tune and not
have to re-tune all the other strings. If you break a string while
playing, your guitar will stay in tune and you can finish the song.
The strings are easily and quickly replaced by loading through the
bottom of the tone block with no cutting or special tools
