    How does a Trans Trem work? Once you lock it into the pitch you want, does it function like a regular tremolo at that point. Or once it's locked, is it basically like a stop tail bridge.
    The reason I'm asking is because I asked a question a few days ago about the tuning on FITH and was told it was standard tuning but played with a Trans Trem. Then I listened to Ballot or the Bullet, which also has that fat, deep tone but Eddie goes nuts on the tremolo in that one. So I'm thinking Trans Trem? D-Tuna? Baritone neck?

    Nope, with the TT you can lock it in one of 7 steps, (4 up, and 3 down, or visa versa I forget), then use it as a regular trem, except it goes a bit further than that.

    When you use the trem, all the string stay in tune, so you can get a funky slide feel going.

    Remember Get Up on 5150? The main riff that happens as soon as the drums start is a good example of the slide effect. Ed's just holding an A and pulling the bar up to C, pretty cool eh?

    They are quite goofy to get used to, I tried one years ago and found it quite tricky.
