About This Item

A coveted tremolo tech tool returns! The Key makes intonating an Original Floyd Rose® tremolo easy and precise.

Simply slip the Key into place over the string lock screw, loosen the saddle mounting screw, and enjoy fingertip control of the saddle position for accurate intonation.

The Key works with Original Floyd Rose design tremolos only. It won't work on Ibanez Edge, Ibanez Lo-Profile, or Schaller locking tremolos.

The Key for Floyd Rose type trems

By

Verified Buyer


The key is an indespensable tool for setting up Floyd Rose type terms, A great price from StewMac. I have a modified one for Ibanez low pro trems but Ibanez have their own version that works for all Ibanez tremelo systems now. StewMac should stock these also.
But overall the Key is a "must have" tool for any workshop. Recommended.

Improve "The Key"

A single drop of Loctite brand 242 Blue thread locker on the end of the threaded shaft that goes inside the knurled knob improves this tool immensely.

Made it easier

Intonation is not a difficult to do, but if you're me, things slip or move when you just hit perfect. This key remedied my issue. Now that I am investing in a second Floyd Rose, this may save me some cursing. Make sure you don't play with the screw too much before using. This makes it difficult to attach.

Works good with a little tweak

I bought this because I have at least 20 Guitars with Floyd's on them, was very excited to try it out! Was a little disappointed when the thumbwheel came off repeatedly while adjusting. I ended up putting some locktite in the thumbwheel and letting it dry, and it works great now! Intonated three Guitars with no problems!

It truly is the key to Floyd Rose set ups.

Probably the greatest invention for working on a Floyd Rose ever. If you are doing set ups on a FR Original without "The Key" you're doing it wrong.

The "Key" is a blessing!

Dialed in a Floyd Rose on a Charvel restoration project. I have never herd a Floyd sound so sweet. I have a Floyd equipped Les Paul Custom (Not MY Doing) in storage I pretty much gave up on that is about to get a new lease on life as well. Don't bother with a Floyd unless you have one of these.

this is great

this is great if you have the right style tailpiece, to me it is worthless as I have the low pro.

Worked like a charm!

Ideas confused at first as to how to use the key. A quick "how to" video search helped with that. I couldn't be happier with it's effectiveness and simplicity.
