Sperzel Drop TunerPublished on 02/10/08 at 17:13
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
- How long have you use it?
I use it for a few weeks, two changes of strings ...

- What is so special that you like most and least?
It's convenient, it descends in D Mi a boost, thanks to tipping.
What is clumsy that he must adjust to each change of rope (a little) and at each change of drawing (a lot).

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, no.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
New, this is very expensive because it is not sold without the appropriate mechanical (a Sperzel Trimlok). Count 5 + MECAS Trimolok a Trimplok Drop Tuner and you go to 180 euros easier, and more for finishing gold. For my part I had already mounted on a guitar (second...…

New, this is very expensive because it is not sold without the appropriate mechanical (a Sperzel Trimlok). Count 5 + MECAS Trimolok a Trimplok Drop Tuner and you go to 180 euros easier, and more for finishing gold. For my part I had already mounted on a guitar (second hand) with 5 Trimloks. This is what you see pictured above.

- With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes, definitely. It's still more convenient than using a Floyd Rose + D Tuna, unless we use a lot of floating vibrato ...

How does it work?
Apart from the concern for the fit, we must recognize that it does not move a muscle.
The system is designed around an axis and rotates 180 °. In the "up", you are in E, and position "down" is the Re. The accuracy of the two notes is a function of patience you have.
The principle is simple: the block rocking allows mechanics to rotate in one direction and the other two values, and the Re Mi. Not rocket science really.

When changing strings, it will unlock the Drop Tuner with the joystick and make regular adjustments in the first 24 hours. It is good to play the guitar a lot and do a few bends to force the strings to the proper tension. Once everything is very stable, the Drop Tuner is ready to be adjusted. Start by adjusting the Mi by switching up. Unlock the axis (via the joystick horizontally) and keep the band firmly without forcing. Adjust the mechanics of note and secure. Switch to D, unlock the handle and adjust.

Once done, adjust the fine and the Re Mi with both high and low rollers, such as a Fine Tuners Floyd Rose. Warning, these wheels are hard and have a very long journey. With practice you get used to. Think that these wheels have a simple action: when is screwed, the note goes to the other (eg the D goes to the screw when Mi), when the opposite is unscrewed. At first it surprises, it must strike the logical thing ...
