DescriptionLocking tremolos provide great tuning stability even under extreme tremolo
A locking tremolo is a type of tremolo that uses a locking nut and a clamp system
to hold the strings in place at the bridge. Since the strings are locked at the nut
and bridge this prevents the strings from slipping at either point which is one of
the problems that causes a standard tremolo to go out of tune. All locking systems
use fine tuners on each string to adjust the tuning due to the string stretching.
All tremolo systems use springs to hold the bridge in place and return it to the
zero position after being used. The springs are countering the tension of the strings
and it is a balancing between these two tensions that allows a tremolo to work properly.
