Quote"What really happened with Kramer?"Really? I can't believe people still want to know about that. How much time do you have? There is a short and long version of this. Which reminds me... Not long after the debacle, I was contacted by a reporter at the Wall Street Journal and gave a very detailed account of what had transpired during the two years I was with Kramer. I gave him a long detailed account, and when the article came out, he'd gotten virtually everything wrong: the facts, the people's names, the events and even the order things happened in. He wrote a ridiculous P.O.S. that bore little if any, similarity with the things I had said. (I actually find it hilarious now, but at the time I was pissed plenty. The whole experience gave me a new perspective for what passes for "journalism.") After a while, I recognized that just the names of many of the players involved were so similar sounding, (Kramer, Kahler, Schaller, Fender...) that it would be confusing to non-industry folks. So, that being said, I'll tell you everything I actually told the WSJ "reporter," in bits and pieces, and come back and add more from time to time.

Quote from: Tone Vise on April 01, 2018, 05:54:01 PMI just recently invented a pat. pending "pitch shifter" that doesn't require an allen wrench to fine tune and fits within a standard tremolo recessed cavity.
I also have a version for stock Floyd Rose Original tremolos and another for Ibanez Original Edge tremolos. They all perform the same function. No allen wrench needed to fine tune, it uses the tremolo's fine tuner. You first tune the guitar to "E", then shift down and fine tune to D. The trem needs to be stabilized with a Tremol-no, Back Box etc. This is a handmade prototype

Quote from: cags12 on April 21, 2018, 06:21:35 AMI would order one in black for me please.Would the intonation of the Low E affect the installation of the pitch shifter?
Quote from: Tone Vise on April 21, 2018, 10:12:20 AMThe screw is close to the same length a the stock one so it shouldn't pose a problem. As the saddle is adjusted further back for larger string gauges the pitch shifter is adjusted back towards the tremolo. if you could post a picture of your tremolo showing were the saddle is at now.They'll be available for sale soon along with some other goodies.
