    Folks I just talked with the pres of Musicyo via email, and he guesses in about 6 months (probably 8-10) TRanstrems will be available at Musicyo,
    no price, or anydetails have been set, but I'd just though you might like to know.

    Tell me more about the Transtrem. I've never seen one, only vaguely heard about them. I'm curious...

    CC, the Trans in TransTrem is short for Transposing. It basically allows you switch what key you're tuned in simply by moving the trem arm up or down.(I forget which keys you can switch to) Bascially you can switch from standard tuning to say the key of G, right in the middle of the song just by moving the bar to that key. Plus you can do normal trem work, but not quite as much movement as you would get out of a Floyd. And you can pull chords up and down and the chord stays in tune, and sounds kinda like you're playing with a slide.(Eddie does this in Get Up). To get an idea of how Eddie uses the transposing function listen to Summer Nights, Me Wise Magic, and Fire in the Hole. You can hear that he changes keys in those songs, plus you can hear the cool way Eddie lets you hear him raising or lowering the key. Nobody uses a TransTrem uses one quite like Eddie, but of course you could've figured that, I mean, it IS Eddie we're talking about.

    Still hooked on that TransTrem, hey LarryJ?
    God Speaks to us through the Bible. If He could play the guitar, he'd play it through Eddie Van Halen.

    Nobody can play the trans trem like Eddie. It's amazing that he can switch and lock that thing in different keys on the fly like that. Unreal.
