Good Product

I'm pleased with this product, especially at the price. I have to agree with Neal that the main body would benefit from being cast aluminum - should be a negligible weight impact for improved quality.

Roller String Retainer

I really like the smaller footprint and it is nice looking as well. This is the roller I am using on all of my basses.

Works Great!

I built my own bass from scratch. I originally opted not to have a string retainer. My design has a Kahler Tremolo bridge, Graphtech Tusq nut, Sperzel locking tuners and a Sustainiac Stealth Pro sustainer. Usually a setup like this is found on a guitar like Steve Vai's Ibanez named "Flo." With so much sustain you can really work out the whammy bar but occasionally the G string would pop off the nut. Once I installed the Roller String Retainer that never happened again and the bass stays in tune even after the deepest whammy dives. I'll be putting these on all my future builds. Here's a photo of Billy Sheehan and I at NAMM 2012 talking about the bass.

This is the best for all of my basses.

The best choice of all string retainer there,
the wheel on both sides reduces friction, so you can have smoother operation for an intonation thing on your bass guitars!

Roller string trees are my thing.

I retrofit all my guitars with roller string trees, as I like them cosmetically, and finally I have been able to do the same with my Peavey Milestone bass. Looks good and works as well if not better than the original.

Great  Product

Put on my Fender P Bass. Works and looks awesome! Was not sure at 1st since it was smaller than the factory string tree but after install I love it.
