Description Technical Specs
We spotted these on our travels a few years ago. What really caught our eye was those all important measurements, with the wide 56.4mm (2 7/32") string and screw spacing and full sized block.

The steel block is standard on most 56.4mm spaced tremolos and whilst steel is considered an upgrade over zinc, it's worth bearing in mind that tone is a very personal thing and whilst the majority prefer steel, there’s always a place for different opinions on guitars.

Firstly, steel is a more expensive material, so that’s reflected in the price, but from a tonal perspective, steel has a much more aggressive character to its sound. Sustain is probably the first thing people talk about when comparing Steel and Zinc, with Steel being much more pronounced, and the high end very crisp and bright. Another point worth noting is that steel seems to offer a volume boost.

Whilst Zinc is more suited to modern sound, Steel really captures that vintage sound with ease – that crisp, biting quack from the 50s and 60s absolutely shines through in the mix.

Supplied with trem arm, springs, screws, claw and Hex key.

5 of 5 Thank You December 17, 2012
Reviewer: John Sloman from Totana, Murcia Spain  
The unit was received, by post, in about a week from ordering; we live in Spain; and is exactly as described and what I needed to repair my Fender labelled, Japanese made Strat. Have fitted it in about an hour or so including setting up octaves and action to perfection. The unit reminds me of the one fitted to my original, American '62 Strat, and I found it easy to install. It may help others if information is included regarding setting the bridge clearance from the body at 1/8" and setting the tuning at this point then relaxing the springs to just free the spacer. Hope this helps
regards  John Sloman
