I was bored to death this evening at home, so I thaught I'd look some videos on youtube. I watched a video of Gary Kahler talking about the bass trems and how to setup. I thaught he could tell me nothing new on the subject (and in fact he didn't), but along the way I saw something flash by that I'd never seen! Shocked



It was at 6:52 in this video

A freaking 8 string! I didn't know such a thing existed, did you guys?

I did, but I never got around to posting about it. Thanks for showing us, Jim! Wink

Man, awesome! Where could I order one if I would like to buy one to use for a custom build some day in the far future?

You can order them from the main Kahler site, but from what I've heard, they are all custom one-off builds. Which means (unless something changes) Kahler isn't planning on making these on a regular basis, but only for special requests.

I'd wager it also means they're going to be expensive.

of course most of us, being of the bass trem persuasion, have heard from someone or another .......

"why did you put a trem on a bass? why dont you just play guitar?"

blah, blah, blah ... why do you ask un original questions?

Laughing

but i look at an 8 string tremolo, and it could be a 4 and 4 dual octave set (cool!) but i would ask the same about any bass with more than 5 strings .......

"why dont you just play guitar?"

i dont ask tho ... because of the questions asked above and, who am i to inhibit anyone's creativity. i've just never had a need for more than 4 strings.

but, for example, i have had the need to have a huge floor signal processor in front of me.

8 string trem ... wild.

les claypool needs one!

I reckon that the Kahler 8-string bass trem is probably for eight discrete strings, instead of octave strings since the spacing between the saddles are all the same.

And I would add to your observation, MadMike.

An eight-string bass trem....wild.

The bass that it goes on....even wilder! Laughing

I have a sixer coming in by UPS hopefully sometime today. I don't need more than 4 strings either, I just want them.
