1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please make yourself at home! I've deleted the previous "migration" threads, please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    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..;)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
