Item # 4028DDT Custom Manufactured Stainless Steel ' DROP TREM ' Pop-In Tremolo Arm For American Deluxe Strat®

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 arm design.

Available in the following lengths:

  • 4-1/2" Shortened length.
  • 5-1/2" Standard length.

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 below). 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 arm style.

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 Trem" tremolo 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 to you.
