Springs can really change your tone, take it from me. The difference is in how your guitar sounds and feels. These Raw Vintage Tremolo Springs are the real deal.Believe it or not, but this combo has really brought out a different side of my Strat. Some call it ‘snake oil’, I call it ‘perfect’. Bending is easier, tone/balanced. Really, I didn’t know that such a simple mod could make a deeply audible, acoustic difference in how a strat sounds and feels. The vibrations simply travel through the guitar body in an easier way.
I did notice that with less (as I was playing with 2 regular before), there is a more open tone to the guitar. The tension of 5 raw vintage = 3 gotoh/stock. I like 4 of the raw vintage…just right! If I want to use the tremolo, the action doesn’t feel like I’m going to rip off the head stock, nor is it super bendy without tension. It’s just like you’d like it…Just right.
It’s simple. Stiffer metal, more difficult bending. We are looking for metal that bends well and returns to tone!

Try this stuff out if you are curious…life is too short for bad tone.
