The Kahler® 6 String Tremolos (TOM)

The 6 string Professional Series - 2200, 2210, 2215, 2220 and 7200 tremolos were made for arched or flat top guitar bodies with either a 1 piece (uni-matic or wraparound) or a 2 piece Tune-o-Matic (TOM) Les Paul style bridge. This bridge style is used when the guitar design and angle of the neck make the strings exceed 1/2" or more in height off the body top at the bridge saddles. Fairly easy to mount, you will need a stop tail stud spread of 3-1/4" (82.5mm), to mount up directly to the Tune-o-Matic's studs. Generally If you have between 2-1/16" and 2-1/4" between the 2 bridge pieces Bridge and stop tail section, measuring from the small E saddle notch (which should be set to the scale length) and to the center/middle of the stop tail piece stud, you will be fine and not much will have to be done to mount it except for classic, Kahler "T" route. If you have the one piece or wraparound type bridge, then you don't have a problem with relocation since you have fresh wood to drill the stud holes properly. Caution: Do not try to use any of the FLAT MOUNT models for a Tune-O-Matic guitar because the saddles wont reach the needed height.

The Profiler, Vindicator, Special and Classic accept up to 2 arms. The Hybrid only accepts a right handed arm. The 2nd arm hole on the other models can be used for the trick J-arm or simply flipped around for a left handed configuration. All models lock into a fixed bridge with the turn of a key!

When it comes to tone styles, Shredd heads usually prefer the "2200 Profiler" while the more moderate players prefer the warmer brass of the"2220 Classic" or the "7200 Hybrid". The "2210 Vindicator" has a unique singing sustain and brighter tone due to the ductile nature of the high grade 6075 aluminum CAM and is currently the only lighter weight alternative (9oz versus 20oz) that works well to brighten darker sounding guitars. The "2215 Special" is wider and darker sounding than the Profiler and works well to darken bright sounding guitars.

As you get older, your musical tastes will inevitably change over the years. No worries... Kahler roller tremolos and bridges were designed for easy tonal transformations. Like the Mattel Transformers, you can simply swap rollers out on your Kahler as needed using a set of Brass, Teflon or Steel rollers.
