The First New Design for Tremolo in 30 YearsUnveiled -

The newly patented Trem King is a vibrato system for guitar thatuses a fixed bridge concept. The bridge plate is fixed to the bodyof the guitar. The saddles are fixed to the bridge and do not move.The intonation point and string height never change as with manyother designs. All the action happens inside the guitar. And thebest part is nothing happens until you touch the vibrato bar.

The Action

The bar inserts directly into the tone block for the bestleverage. The tone block pivots back and forth to provide thevibrato action. The Trem King is able to act as a fixed bridgebecause the critical balance of string tension versus springpressure combined with the patented Tension Bar. The tone blockonly moves when the vibrato bar is moved. When you use the vibratobar, the tension bar brings the tone block back to the same ZeroPoint time after time. Two springs are normally all that arenecessary to provide this balance. This allows for very light (2lbs.) pressure to actuate the vibrato. The feel is precise andsmooth.

Get A Grip. Really...

Along with the exclusive Grip Tip Vibrato Bar that has anadjustable rubber tip, the Trem King is a joy to play. There is nolocking nut necessary on the Trem King. You can drop tune and nothave to re-tune all the other strings. If you break a string whileplaying, your guitar will stay in tune and you can finish the song.The strings are easily and quickly replaced by loading through thebottom of the tone block with no cutting or special toolsnecessary.
