Hey guys,

After testing many tremolos back on the market, I wanted to find out which tremolo has the best chance of staying in tune better. Could anyone please tell me which tremolo beats all?

Regards,
WSONG

I haven't used a lot of tremolos, but of course a locking trem will hold tune FAR better than a non-locking. The Ibanez Edge Pro holds the best out of the ones that I have tried

Floyd Rose Titanium

Made in USA, all parts machined from solid billets of titanium.

Only downfall is, they are ~$900.


But, besides that,

You CANNOT beat a German-Made OFR.
Ibanez Edge comes a close 2nd
Other Ibanez bridges, along with the 'new' FR 1000 Series and Specials

If you understand what they are and are not, you can make any trem play in tune.

The following statement is true. The proceeding statement is false.

I like the khaler's, but they arent for everybody.

otherwise, a german or japanese OFR is always a good bet

what you really need is a new amp

Every guitar and bass forum I've visited has some people chasing some magical tone that will shoot jizzing unicorns riding on a rainbow out of their amp.

A professional race car driver can't drive a car with an engine that doesn't start.

Electric motors dont start, they are either ready or not.

Your logic is flawed.


If you understand the concepts on which the trem was based, then you can make sure all parts are working as they should. If they are not, then you can fix them so the trem works as best as it can.
