do they make a floyd rose whammy for bass?


As far as I know, there is only 1 Floyd style bass trem in existence, and that wasn't even made by Floyd Rose.

Go with the Kahler. Very nice.

Ya I don't see the point in putting a Floyd on a bass either. Only good for 80's shredders who divebomb on, like, every other note. I don't even see the point of putting one on a guitar that isn't already routed for one. A Kahler will stay in tune quite well if its set up correctly, without the loss of tone from having to cut a chunk out of the thing. In fact, Kahlers are really heavy and have a ton of contact with the body, so unless you have a Badass bridge or similar thing it will probably improve your tone. Follow everything in here and it will stay pretty much in tune no matter what:

We get a little off topic, but read through the entire thing. There's some really useful info. And that applies to everyone with a bass trem.

Kahler trems are much less hassle than FRs anyways.

yup restringing them is a huge pain xD my friennd cant stop moaning why did i buy an Ibanez with a Floyd Rose its pretty funny cause it takes him ages to restring and im finished in like 30min with my bass LOL.

And what would be the point of a whammy on bass, never ever seen it used in a song or im just not paying attention xD

Guess you've never listened to Primus or some Victor Wooten then.
#13
Yeah, I saw this guy once that had a whammy, made for a pretty nice solo tool. If I ever get a piccolo bass, I'll put a whammy on it.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

yeah it would be pretty easy to do yourself if you have a decent idea of electronics and circuitry.

raz gets an idea for the old P-bass copy that he was gifted xd.

ok, something else with my ML, like the pickups are starting to rust? its weird, anyone ever heard of this happening?
#20
^yes it does happen. Use some fine steel wool or scotch brite to take the rust off. Then use a bit of clear nail polish to cover the metal.

It happens due to sweat from your hands. Make sure you keep a rag or towel nearby when you play and wipe down your hands and your instrument to avoid this in the future.
#22
Sounds like you're building the bass of my dreams, except mine would be a five-string.

A five-string with a whammy bar and a killswitch.........
*orgasms*
#23
i agree! i would make my ML a 5 string, but they dont have the Dean wings head stock in a 5 string

By the way, it now has another pick-up on a completely different circuit so I can run it through two amps.


I think I've seen pics of yours on here before; it's an Ibanez, right?
#28
hey bro
If I were you, I'd buy one of the 2400 series Kahlers. You would just have to do top routing with the forward saddle series.

Quote by Casketcreep
It's a gsr200 that I bought for 30 quid second hand, and it was spotless.

The bridge alone cost 5 times as much as the bass did.
I like it; I have an Ibanez GSR190 myself (same thing, but the 200 has active electronics, right?). I've always been jealous whenever I saw pictures of yours; still, I like mine's finish better.

Same with all Kahlers. And the forward saddle one wouldn't fit. Thats why they made the rear facing ones.

^why wouldn't the front facing ones fit?

Routing isn't too difficult. I routed the spot for the flat-mounted FR on my EVH frankenstrat by myself...and I have 0 experience in that area. And I know TS has woodworking skills.

It just wouldn't. Imagine that the saddles were flipped around, and then moved the bridge back so that the intonation would be correct. Even if you moved the saddles as far back as you could, it would still be hanging off the back. The only difference between the 2410 and the 7410 (hybrid), IIRC, is that the hybrid uses a few aluminum parts, whereas the 2410 is made entirely out of brass.
