OK, so these guys haven't even started selling anything yet, but the technology sounds promising and they will eventually make a bass version and a guitar trem version. They also mention some custom options like a B-bender and 7 string version. Maybe we could see if they'd offer a certain other custom option?

I wonder if the same principle they use applies if you'd have one spring a string! Which would in fact mean that you'd have as much trem's on your instrument as strings. I think this is quite a simple buy very innovative idea, that i think should work as long as you don't overstretch one of your springs. To me this idea souns like the best idea for a trem since the transtrem! Maybe i should find out if there are any patents? Very Happy

the thing i'm trying to figure out is why the hell this hasn't been done before. I'd thought of this concept many times, but i guess it just takes one person to take the concept one step further.

If memory serves me correctly, the TUNE bass tremolo employs a spring for each string.

What i understood of the description what they invented is in fact not a guitar trem but a bridge that compensates the stretching of the string with a spring. But as i already stated, this also offers some great potential as a trem!

The website seems to hint that they are planning to do a trem design, but only for guitar at this point.

I say that we all send them emails asking if they would consider doing a bass trem. I certainly plan on doing so! Wink

"Is it a trem/floating bridge or a fixed bridge?
The EverTune bridge plays like a fixed bridge. In terms of tone, it is on par with a hard tail/fixed bridge.

However, each string is suspended by a spring, and the saddle is floating, so in terms of attack and sustain, it may be more similar to a trem/floating bridge.

Any plans for a trem version?
Yes, we will have a trem version in the future."
