Tremolo stabilizer!
Returns a tremolo to an exact position every time.

For use with full-floating tremolos, the Hipshot™ Tremsetter automatically returns a tremolo to an exact position every time! The guitar will stay in tune better, and tuning is quicker and more accurate, because the bridge won't move due to changes in string tension. Other benefits include eliminating tremolo warble and open strings won't go flat during string bends.

Now you can palm-mute strings, play aggressive rhythm parts, string bends and double-stops, and the bridge and tuning will remain stable.

The Tremsetter works with most vintage-style and floating tremolos, including Fender, Floyd Rose®, Wilkinson and Ibanez.

Instructions are included.

took about 20 minutes to install and works great. Takes under a minute to change from e tuning to drop D and its the same way back to Standard E.

easy install

I installed it in less them 30 minutes. I didn't have a long drill bit so i used an electricians trick with a coaat hangar. perfect size for the rod to pass thru. works like a champ. THe tremelo is stiffer but I don't use it that much anyway.

I read a lot of reviews before I skeptically purchased. I installed it myself, If you can read & follow directions, you should have no problems with awesome results. I installed it on a early model GTX with a KMD bridge. It plays so much better, and stays in tune. A++

Good product

It's great, it functions as it should, but it makes the whammy bar a little tough. I ended up throwing it away. I gotta be clear with this, It's a great product, it really works but if you like an easy bar in your locking tremolo. Be away from it.

Funciona mesmo!

Uhh, oh, oh - what is this thing?

I have a friend who owns two Strats. He brought me one a few months ago, it wouldn't fret right, had some chirps and buzzes between the 8th and 12th frets.....it had a ball bearing roller nut, (something I had never worked on before), and it measured up ok....BUT -the tremolo bridge was touching at the back, (?) so I jacked that up to 1/8th inch...re-set the whole thing up, and it played monstrously good-didn't need anything else. So, he is so happy, he just brought me Strat number 2. Same kind of nut, same thing wrong with the bridge....NOTE* I think the previous setup dude needs to learn how to set up a tremolo bridge! Anyway, when I took the back off, uhhhh, what is that thing?

I have seen a tremsetter in this catalog, but never worked on a guitar that had one, and always thought about getting one for my Strat. I went to google, found all the instructions for installing these, a couple forums with ideas, and a youtube by the guy that makes these things. I went to the bench, setup the guitar with 2 springs, got it close, then put this tremsetter back in and adjusted it the way that the guy on the youtube said to. First off, I cannot understand how any guitar tech that can read, could screw up one of these bridges -EVER- and for the life of me, I can't see how anybody could ever knock the usefullness of the tremsetter. I shall be ordering one for my "Ruby" Strat.....RP at guitrailer guitars....ps, never too late to teach an old dog a new trick!

Don't read the bad reviews

As a professional guitar technician I have installed dozens of these. They do exactly what they are supposed to, and are a lifesaver for any guitarist who wants a more stable, in tune tremolo system. The Installation MUST be done precisely and by a pro, as it is a very delicate procedure. I have not had one complaint from any of my clients, and sell more and more of these every year. All in all great product that works as advertised.

I can't use a Floyd without one

There are some reviewers who bag this item.Ignore them.They probably have not set it up properly.If you get annoyed having your Floyd Rose go out of tune when string bending,or want a stable floating trem,then this is for you.I have 3 of these and all work very well indeed.Easy to install and set up.Great peace of mind for gigging guitarist as it helps if you break a string mid song.I've used another similar unit a Rockinger? Black box.This is better.
