This new style tremolo arm is
an off-shoot of our original "EZ-Trem" but we
find this version a bit more attractive
visually, it has a much more modern style yet
performs the same with it's unique "drop down"
design and is exclusively designed for the
American Deluxe Strat with it's pop-in tremolo
the following lengths:
Featured here is a unique new design
for a Strat® tremolo
arm; The "Drop Trem". As you already know, when in use, the standard Strat® tremolo arm
comes straight toward the neck as it comes up and out of the bridge, with the
"Drop Trem" design it drops down at an angle before turning and coming back toward the
neck (as depicted in the photo to the right and
This in effect lowers the tremolo arm and places it in a more forward and
natural angle within the hand when swung into the playing position.
The "Drop Trem" design is very comfortable for
those that like to hold or rest the tremolo arm in their hand while playing, it
also facilitates palm muting of the strings with ease. You will find that the "Drop
Trem" tremolo arm is a unique improvement over the standard or
traditional Strat® tremolo
Our "Drop Trem" is at it's best when your bridge is set up as
"Free Floating". With a free floating bridge setup very subtle and
accurate tremolo effect can be achieved quite effectively.
Each of our "Drop Trem" tremolo
arms are custom manufactured by hand from Precision Ground 303 Stainless Steel
in two lengths for the American Deluxe Fender® Stratocaster®. The
Precision Ground finish provides a very smooth and clean appearance
that polishes to a finish very similar to chrome. The Deluxe "Drop Trem" is
manufactured for right handed guitars only.
The Deluxe Strat® "Drop
arm does not have the traditional plastic tip,
instead the tip end of the bar is rounded as
depicted in the photograph to the right. Each
tremolo arm is then entirely polished to a fine
luster for a finish very similar to chrome.
The purchase of one of our
pop-in tremolo arms may require you to re-adjust
the two tremolo arm tensioning set screws on the
back side of your tremolo block. These two set
screws dictate the insertion and rotational
friction. These set screws use a 3/32" hex
wrench, one is accessible just under the top
plate on the back side of the bridge the other
requires removal of the bridge from the guitar.
The upper set screw primarily dictates the
rotational friction, the lower set screw
primarily dictates how firm or loose the arm
engages the retaining clip.
Each "Drop Trem"
tremolo arm is custom manufactured, so give us a
few days to get yours fabricated and on its way
