Tremoline FT36 - Original Fine Tuning Double Locking Tremolo System
The flat top surface allows exceptional convenience to guitar players.
FINE TUNING SCREWS
The solution of sinking the fine tuning screws into the saddle bodies allows comfortable guitar playing without any fear that the strings will go out of tune.
The use of specially selected STAINLESS STEEL alloys leads to very easy maintenance and the longevity of the device.
RETROFITS FR TREMOLOS
This new tremolo allows easy replacement of the existing double locking Floyd Rose type (Original, Pro and Special and their copies) tremolos.
RETROFITS Non-Locking (74.2 mm) TREMOLOS
Also this construction allows replacement of some of the existing Non-locking (2 points 74.2 mm) tremolos with fully functional double-locking tremolo.
UNIT STRING RADUIS R16"
The standard unit string radius of the R16"(406.4mm) gives the same playing feel as when using the usual locking tremolo.
Aligning the parts in several different layers leads to a very compact construction.
The special and unique solution of Tremolo Arm and Sustain Block connection leads to avoiding of backlash and gives very precise feeling.
SADDLE MOUNTING SCREWS
Moving the saddle mounting screws away from the string planes gives serious convenience in intonation adjustment stage.
THICK SUSTAIN BLOCK
The use of a big sustain block is not a coincidence, it leads to increased sustain and better sound quality.
Every contacting point in the tremolo system was very strictly analyzed. The main enemy of sound quality is the high friction in some critical points. Low friction allows the tremolo to return correctly to the central position.
The use of precisely selected, special, and high quality materials with high hardness and density, gives exceptional sound quality and durability.
ORIGINAL PATENTED CONSTRUCTION
This unique and new device presents the only Flat Top Fine Tuning Double Locking Tremolo System. U.S. Patented.
Replacing the old wide head screws with special slotted head screws, and the usage of the guitar pick for adjustment, make the fine tuning process simple, quick, and intuitive.
HIDDEN FINE TUNING SPRINGS
Replacing the usual plate spring with several hidden compression springs into the saddle bodies, turns this device into the lowest profile double locking tremolo. U.S. Patented.
SMALL NUMBER OF PARTS
Practical use of the “LESS IS MORE” philosophy.
The use of more standard parts gives more convenience in production and maintenance processes.
The Adjustment screw gives the opportunity of precise intonation adjustment, without any use of additional special tools like the Intonation Adjusters.
Welcome to the Tremoline web site!
Here you will meet our vision of creating better musical instruments that meet even higher requirements of musicians and that of using the achievements of the technology of the 21 century.
This is a story of how the sum of uncountable small improvements have become real inventions through Passion, Creativity, Persistence and Faith.
Now we are very pleased to introduce you to our project:
Tremoline FT36 - the Only Flat Top Fine Tuning Double Locking Tremolo System, a new ORIGINAL tremolo system PATENTED in the USA, Germany and other countries.
This project started a few years ago as an idea, which came from the hobby of an engineer and non-professional musician with a passion to rock music.
Actually at the bottom of this project there were two very important things:
HUGE UNSATISFACTION and asking the RIGHT QUESTIONS, as following:
WHY do the screws protrude above the top surface and constantly hinder my hand?
WHY do the strings sound so poor and without any sustain?
WHAT are the reasons to all these problems?
WHO are the people trying to find the answers to these questions?
WHAT were the solutions proposed by inventors and manufacturers?
HOW can I find a solution to all of these problems?
HOW can the science of engineering help me?
HOW can I propose a smart and workable solution as a piece of art with a remarkable design?
You can find more specialized information and attached technical documents about our Original TREMOLO SYSTEMS and LOCKING NUTS on the exact subpages.
