No more compromises and no more frustration with...

• time-consuming and complicated assembly!

• metallic changes in sound due to permanent installation!

• Rattling noises when operating the tremolo

• well-known stiff spring constructions... "Goodbye floating bridge, etc."

• Protracted fiddling during a gig until the lock is tight

• Danger that the lock will loosen

That's part of the past!
No changes or settings are required on the tremolo, the hardtailer or the guitar!
Installation is very easy and done in minutes!

After deactivating the hardtailer, the original function of the tremolo system remains unchanged.
Both the handling and the sound!

Changing strings on Floyd Rose tremolos like on a hardtailbridge!

A little tip: it is also possible to tune the guitar down a half tone by activating the hardtailer with the help of the knurled screw! The individual strings only need to be retuned slightly.

Is very helpful with Floyd Rose tremolos!

Before installation - tune the guitar!
Very important during installation, the tremolo must not rest on the work surface. It is best to remove the tremolo lever and put something under it so that the tremolo is free and is in the zero position!
Then install as follows!

If the hardtailer is installed, deactivate the hardtailer and tune the guitar again.
Extend and activate the hardtailer for Drop-D.
Then tune the E string to D.
Now strike any other string, e.g. the A or D string, and fine-tune it precisely using a tuner using the knurled screw and a thin screwdriver or Allen key.
The A,D,G,B,E strings only tune with the knurled screw. These strings are all tuned this way together because fine-tuning only restores the position of the tremolo.
Check the E string in the D tuning again and if necessary fine tune the remaining strings together as described with the knurled screw.
Done and rock away!!

Just a quick bit of information as to why no assembly instructions are included in the scope of delivery.
Apart from the fact that assembly is much easier to understand using media, we wanted to avoid additional paper waste for ecological reasons.
