Trem Angle

I dont get it, why does the trem angle have to be parallel to the body. Is there a specific technical reason for this? Keep in tune is that it? Or is it customizable and diffrent for everyone. Like higher up, so you can pull back more? Doesnt the trem angle change everytime you put new strings on?

Re: Trem Angle

The trem itself, and the hole it sits in, have been designed for optimal performance when the trem is parallel to the body. Having said that, some players do prefer to set the trem at a slight angle for a different feel or to get the type of performance they want. Like most things it comes down to personal preference.
If the trem angle changes when you change strings, something isn't right!

Re: Trem Angle

If trem angle changes then so does intonation right?

Re: Trem Angle

Are the new strings a different length? Did you wind them a different amount because I think that would cause different amounts of tension. By different length I mean overall length including the wound part of the strings.

Re: Trem Angle

Um, I don't think that the amount of winding would influence the tension. If the strings are tuned to pitch, there should be about the same amount universally. If you happen to wind it more, that just means it has more wraps around the tuning post, but when tuned to pitch, the tension should be the same I believe.
