    Question Screw specifications to tighten the tremolo bar on SBMM JP157

    The screw used to tighten the tremolo arm on the JP 157 uses the same allen key as the volume knobs. I lost my tremolo screw and tried to use the screw used by the volume knobs but it just doesn't go in. re the screws slightly different in any way?

    Give EBMM customer service a call (or email) - they'll send another your way.

    I stay in India, so I doubt they'll have a strong customer support base here for such things. So it'd be better if I could find out the specs of the screws so I could check with some local hardware stores.

    It's probably in the forum somewhere, but you could certainly email them to ask.

    Regardless ... having a good set of metric hex keys (1, 1.5, 2 ... etc.) is a good investment for working on instruments.

    You should contact Sterling by Musicman to find out what the specs are on the tremolo screw. Just because they both use the same hex key doesn't mean they are the same thread pitch or diameter.

    Right, thanks. I'll do that.
