    FR Tremolo Stop Tip of the Day

    So I recently installed a tremolo stop on Charvel I had. Works as it should except the "click" you hear once it returns to the home position. I created a cheap fix for that. My secret is heat shrink tube. I can get various sizes for less than 5 bucks at a Chinese tool supplier. I use it for all sorts of guitar electronics but this seems to work best for the desired effect.

    Cut a about 3/16 or less off of the tube. Apply it to the end of the thread so just a hair extends over the threads of the tremolo stop. Apply heat or use a cigarette lighter for a few seconds and Boom....problem solved. NO more "click" through your amp.

    I use the same type trem stop. I just put a little round felt pad (with an adhesive back) on the trem block where the trem stop makes contact.

    I guess there are 101 ways to do this. Whatever is handy works. It's all about having fun and getting creative!
