An absolutely ingenious and musical vintage tremolo as Leo Fender had thought it

Harald769, 02.02.2016
Where is there something?
A "Made in Germany" Vintage Tremolo with the highest quality components for the same price from an original Fender American Vintage Tremolo?

With ABM. This tremolo is the absolute hammer! The best recommendation and ideal investment for life, to make a good strat even better, more perfect and musical.

The following advantages I have seen against my old Fender tremolo:

1) The 53 mm String Spacing ensures that the high and also deep E-string no longer slip over the fingerboard. This has often annoyed me at Bendings, as suddenly the high E-string slipped away and I could not play the sound at all clean. In live situations, this happened to me several times. Now this phenomenon is gone.

2) The steel tremoloblock, the steel base plate and the steel string runners provide an incredibly high sustain and an effective twangsound. Now my Strat sounds as I have always imagined the sound of a Vintagestrat. It is as if someone had removed a ceiling from my amp clear, pearly and bell-like sound, with defined basses, clear sound separation and no harsh highs. And this alone by a new tremolo, and above all, unencumbered and audible !!

3) I play the Tremolo freischwebend. Sounds better for me too. Lately, especially in high-frequency tremolo use, I have often strung strings, especially the high E string. The problem is solved by the ABM. There is no more tears here. 100% reliability especially in life situations.

4) In addition, the tremolo is almost absolutely tuneable even with intensive tremolo use.

5) With Fendertremolos the tremolo lever wobbles like a cow tail. What I have not tried everything: Feathers in the threaded shaft, Teflon tape, screwed up to the stop; The wobbling and thus the direct control of the tremolo could never be established properly. The ABM has a small maggot screw, with which one can adjust the play of the tremolo lever from loosely to properly fixed. There's no more wiggling.

6) My old tremolo had the disadvantage that the lever always hang on the cable - a high-quality monster rock cable - and stuck. And suddenly the mood was a semitone higher, and I was completely perplexed because I did not know at the first moment at a gig why my Strat could be so cruel. Now there is a lot of space, so you can plug any form of tinkle cable into the guitar.

7) And finally: the installation is for a little practiced screwdriver without problems. And the setting also works excellently. Had I already mentioned that with this tremolo of ABM the Octavreinheit can be adjusted perfectly perfectly? And that the string height is much lower adjustable, without the strings of strings?

Conclusion: In addition to my Eric Johnson Strat, the Kloppmann Real 65 PUs, my Rodenberg GAS 909, this tremolo from ABM is the very best investment for a genius and uninhibited stratageound, which gives you a guitarist A really good sound, to play even more musically.

Top Tremolo - 1A processing and sound

Andi_E, 21.12.2015
The tremolo is delivered with everything you need for assembly - even additional screw-in-the-screws and spare springs for the bells (string rider ...) are included; very good!
All parts are of the highest quality and can be easily installed in a strat.
The difference to an "ordinary" Vintage Trem (steel block with bent string runners) is enormous:
- The string position can be adjusted even more optimally with my instrument: deeper than the old Trem and still without snarling.
- The guitar sounds more balanced: basses are more defined, the treble is not pointed - great!
- The sustain improves significantly: longer and more evenly at the end. You can also feel that the guitar is now more resonant.
- The tuning stability is improved. Even when the Trem floating (the tremolo is possible up and down) the guitar does not get out of the mood. Of course you can not drive a Divebombs with a Vintage Trem - everything has its limits.
- The overtone behavior is even more dynamic. The Gittarre is even easier to "sing".
- The tremolo arm can be fixed or adjusted in the movement from wobbly to fixed (small screw in the Trem block makes it possible)

The only downside: the remaining second Trem block: here I would simply wish two different versions of this article, so that such high-quality parts have not been used unused. (The brass block also has the screw for the lever lock) The block can be mounted on a different base plate, but the advantages of this system can not be fully utilized since ABM has the base plate and the Trem- Screws are made of identical material (so that the trem does not eat in the screws and recoil)

My conclusion:
If you are looking for a tremolo in a perfect vintage look, which brings improvements in Puncto handling and sound quality is right here.
I would buy this part again at any time if I want to upgrade a Strat again.
Thanks again to Thomann for the always perfect service - have never seen anything better!
