  1. hi TBers.. :cool:
    i recently got curious bout installing a tremolo brigde for my 5str BTB.. i've read some threads bout trem brigde and Kahler mostly recommended AFAIK.. but kahler have a narrow string spacing for 5str bridge.. FYI ibanez BTB string spacing is 19mm and i'm happy with it..;)
    so i was looking for the "right" trem bridge to install, and hereby let SHOW U'r BASS with TREMOLO Brigde!! :hyper:



    ps : if it's a repost or double threads, just delete it..

    A collection of better pics can be found at http://www.avbasses.cz/4BOJV.htm

    And I also have my old trusty custom Warwick, also with EMG & Kahler:

    Those Kahlers are very sturdy and very adjustable, I'd recommend them to anybody.

    Anyone know if a Kahler 6 would fit on a 2001 Ibanez 406, not sure of the spacing though.

    Not any more, the new Kahler V's can do any spacing.

    New Kahlers, if ordered for 5 strings, come with a much wider base, and can be used from any spacing, from 14mm, to 21+mm.

    This is a forum for bass trems, lot of info there.
     
  11. thanx a lot dude!! i'll check it out :hyper:
     
  12. One of my next basses is going to be set up as an "Effects Bass" (hopefully on a Spector ReBop, using Dave LaRue's old "live" Kahler-equipped Spector as seen on the cover of his Instructional DVD as a model) with a Kahler trem and a Bass Sustainaic sustainer pickup to simulate bowed Cello-type sounds when played clean and distorted lead lines when used with effects.
     
  13. hey, i own that one, nice DVD!! :bassist:

    Should be fine, but I don't know for sure, I do know it's adjustable.

    You guys are killing me with these tremolos. I'm thinking how bad it would be to divebomb with a delay pedal. Anybody have some links to a bassist killing it with tremolo and effects?
