#1: another question for JAZ and Joey and others!

Posted on 2006-01-06 03:44:04 by Nate Najar

re locking trems.... I have that kahler trem on my franken strat. It
sounds good plugged in but acoustically some of the notes seem dead. I
think it has to do with that locking nut. YOu know the strings pass
through under the plocking plates and so there's all that metal the
string is on. Can something be done to that nut to improve this
condition? Or would that not be the culprit? I don't have another
trem equipped guitar to compare. WHat are your opinions?

I have no idea how much Kahlers have progressed in the last 10-15 years.
But, the version i had with the rollers at the bridge, was great until you
compare it to Floyd or even the Ibanez Edge system..which pretty much is a
Floyd design.

The Kahler certainly changed the tone on my guitars. I had two. A Strat
and an SG.
And it did have an effect on the sustain..especially the high E and B
strings.
I replaced the Kahler with the Fl Rose and it came back to life. The SG i
sold.

I've never had any issue with the Floyds..I have the strat and the Valley
Arts Pro.
Also the Ibanez operates and responds much the same.

Bottom line...to my experience the Kahler was a bad design. But as
forementioned, things may have changed since then.

this one has no rollers butit's at least 15 years old if not 20. So
you've added to my suspicion that it affects the sound adversely. The
guitar body is routed so i can't put a standard bridge in- maybe I
should replace it with a floyd.

Ive used both, but ive got a kahler trem on my jackson, it has rollers
at the bridge. and the unusual locking system behind the nut. ive never
thought 'this guitar lacks sustain' but then ive never had the guitar
with anything else. As you know if you break a string with the kahler
trem the rest stay near enough in tune, which also means you can do
'country style' double stop bends in tune, which you cant on a floyd.
for that reason alone i would stick with the kahler.

I think the Kahler's sonic problems have nothing to do with the locking
device at the headstock ...*if* it was properly installed. If your
string notches in the nut are cut too deep, then the locking gizmo will
affect your tone, but if the nut is at the proper height the lock won't
interfere with string vibrations.

No, I think the sonic problems with Kahlers are attributible to their
bridge saddles. Made my guitar sound like a freakin' Coral electric
sitar!

You can if you use a Tremsetter, or sim.
