im gettin a bass tremolo hopefully soon, but just a question to anyone has/has played a bass with a whammy. do you really have to crank that sunofabiitch to get a good bend?or does its go smooth like a like a guitar whammy?

is this a locking trem or a whammy that your talking about. a trem i suppose would take some pulling on to get a good effect. a simple dive only whammy wouldnt take much.


just so you know though, i have never even seen a bass trem, im just goin by my guitar knowledge

wow. whmmy bass. never heard of it...i would imagine divebobs would go easy enough. but there is a tension difference, to trem would be a little different than guitar. i guess i really wouldnt know since ive never seen this before....maaaaaaybe try it out if you're unsure

They are extremely well engineered, and therefore very good, but very expensive. Ive played a Warmoth with one and as long as the massive routing doesnt bother you, I'd say go for it. The one I played had some balance issues, possibly because of the extra routing involved with a trem.

Here's mine.



And here's a back side shot....



Mine has a Kahler trem on it. There's a few different types on the market today. Hipshot, ABM, & Kahler. Both the Hipshot & ABM bridge require a ton of wood to be routed out of the back in order to make room for the springs. While the Kahler is the most expensive one out there, it's the best one IMO.

Mine stays in tune really well. I have no problem with it at all. I use it for bending harmonics mostly.

Do yourself a favor, save your money. I wouldn't spend the money on another one.
