    I know that there have been a lot of threads about these things, but has ANYONE tried one out yet?? I MIGHT (keyword MIGHT) be getting one on the bass Darrin Huff is making for me, but I'd like to hear what people have to say about them first.

    Thanks!

    Please, no cross-posting in different forums. I deleted the one in Basses...

    I forgot I couldn't do that. I'd rather have the post in the "Basses" portion of the site--it seems lots more people go there, and I'd have a better chance of having my question answered there.

    Thanks!

  4. tim c has one on his bass. i played one, u cant bend up pull back on the bar as much as a kahler trem. the good things about the hipshot,it goes for 150$ new,my kahler was 200 used(damm nino) stays in tune really well, and easy to setup, the onyl bad thing i can think about it is how much wood is removed.
