Members guitar247 Posted February 15, 2010 Members Share Posted February 15, 2010 Guitar Heroes using a Fender style Vintage Tremelo (Versus) the artists using a Floyd Rose Tremelo! Is there a difference between the overall playing and tonal qualities delivered by artists using Vintage Fender Tremelos versus those that use a Floyd Rose system? Obviously the Floyd Rose stays in tune due to the sheer mechanics of a locking tremolo.However, does the Vintage tremolo and its inferior mechanics help to create a superior guitarist or does the Floyd Rose achieve the latter? FYI: Van Halen used a vintage tremolo on the first VH record of which seemed to capture his best playing. Here is a list of a few great guitarists that predominantly use either a vintage tremolo or a Floyd Rose. (Of course there are thousands of players, but we just grabbed a few names we usually associate with either tremolo) The Vintage Tremelo users !Hendrix = Vintage TremeloEric Clapton= Vintage TremeloEddie Van Halen = First two VH Records SRV = Vintage TremeloEric Johnson = Vintage TremeloRitchie Blackmore = Vintage TremeloRory Gallager= Vintage TremeloRhandy Rhoads= Vintage Tremelo on both Jackson V Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
