Problem with your tremolo bar?? There’s a solution!
If you have a Strat, you know that your tremolo arm will mostly hang vertically.
This is a problem especially when playing David Gilmour. We know that he uses a Callaham tremolo arm, and he keeps it close to his hand.
Well how do we do that? With these:

Fender tremolo bar springs

Put this tiny springs in the hole of your tremolo arm and screw the tremolo over

Just unscrew your tremolo arm, put one of these in the hole, screw your tremolo arm again, and you’re good to go!!

I suggest you to give it 2 or 3 turns after you feel resistance, to increase the life of the tiny spring.

You can find the screws (12 pack) for example here at Thomann.


If you have a Mexican Standard Stratocaster, you could have the tremolo bar hole going through all the bridge. So the spring would fall from the other end!! In that case, you can’t use the tremolo springs. I’m sorry!!

I was born on 05/02/1989 in the beautiful Taormina, a little town not too far from Messina, Sicily. I live in Bergamo since I was very young; Now I work here as Web Developer. I have various hobbies: informatics, electronics, videogames, cars, magic, cinema e, my passion, music. My approach to music happened very early in my life: I began playing the guitar when I was 4. There also was a keyboard at home, so I could play 2 instruments; this allowed me to learn how to play several instruments later. The guitar remains my favourite instrument, my idol is (of course) David Gilmour. I often sing while I play the piano. I have a good experience with bass and drums.
