I am switching a first price (crap) Chinese Bigsby tremolo for a Stetsbar Stop-Tail tremolo
In the video published in this article, I explain how to install it and set it up in floating mode.
Right now, it isn’t easy to get a stetsbar tremolo. DUe to covid lockout all around the world, the Tremolo is MIA. All the sites selling stetsbar products are out of stock, including the stetsbar website. I was finally able to find one in England. Unfortunately, it was one of the last they had in stock.
Talking about the Stetsbar Stop-Tail tremolo, it is the best piece of equipment you can get for top tail guitar aside from whammy bars such as Kahler or the FXR from Floyd Rose. You can reverb the guitar to its original shape in under ten minutes, and the setting is straightforward to achieve.
When it first came out, it had a bad press. Probably due to its look and also to the way the term is acting. You have to get used to it because it doesn’t work as a regular start tremolo, but once you get used to it, it is by far better.
I am Hervé Senni, a pro musician and performer for quite some time.
My main musical instrument is unquestionably the electric guitar. Nevertheless, I also perform bass guitar, mandolin, Ukulele, and invented string instruments. I am also a composer as well as an arranger. Over the years, repairing and trying to further improve electric guitars that a majority of times did not have to be upgraded converted me right into a self-taught luthier.
