|The TTA-01 The Titanium Tremolo Assembly™, to me, is the most dramatic upgrade for the Stratocaster™ guitar I have ever encountered. When I developed the Titanium Tremolo Block, I was excited about removing over one quarter pound of weight from the Stratocaster™. I have always looked for and played light weight electric guitars as I feel they sound better and seem to inspire me from the moment I pick them up. I installed the prototype Titanium Tremolo Assembly in my personal guitar and the weight differential immediately took the back seat compared to the musicality that the new bridge brought to my guitar. I felt more connected with my hands to the instrument than ever before thus allowing me to feel and make tone changes just with my hands. The bridge gave a more complete harmonic content and vastly improved the tuning aspects of the guitar. Even plugging in to my tuner gave me great insight as to the way the bridge affected the quality of the notes. My tuner locked on to the notes quickly and didn’t waiver. It really was a very visual way of seeing the way the bridge affected the notes and tuning…I was not just hearing the difference, I was seeing the difference!
The TTA-01 Titanium Tremolo Assembly™ is the direct replacement for the vintage tremolo bridge found on Stratocasters™ made from 1954 to our present day reissue models and custom shop models. The assembly consists of our TTB-01 Titanium Tremolo Block , our FS-11 Titanium Saddles, Hardened Steel Top Plate and Stainless Steel Tremolo Arm.
The benefit of choosing our complete TTA-01 Titanium Tremolo Assembly™ is the ease of removing the complete original bridge without disrupting the saddle positions. Our trem assembly can then be dropped into the guitar and setup for intonation and tremolo adjustments. The old assembly can be put away and if you decide to sell the guitar you can reinstall the old bridge and keep our Titanium assembly to install in your next Strat....Mike
