Schaller LockMeister® 6 Tremolo – beyond your expectations  

 LockMeister_6_247

Since its debut in 2012, the Schaller LockMeister® became the most advanced locking tremolo: 100 % Made in Germany – designed, engineered, and manufactured. Now we present the first double-locking tremolo that allows individual adjustment to different fretboards, whether straight or compound radius!

The new LockMeister system can now be adapted to different fingerboard radii. While locking nuts (R2/R3) were previously only available with 10″ and tremolos with 12″, there are now 5 different locking nut radii and 4 different tremolo radii to choose from.

The flowing transition from a strongly curved fingerboard in the lower registers to a flatter radius in the higher registers can now be realized exclusively with the new LockMeister system.

LockMeister® 6 pitch perfect triple feature – choose between:

4 x LockMeister Tremolos with fixed bridge radii: 10″, 12″, 14″ and 16″

Pitch perfect features – only available for LockMeister® 6

  • New height-adjusted one-piece string saddles: no more shims needed between saddle and baseplate.
  • Fully closed string saddles on the bottom for optimum hold and contact to the baseplate: falling out saddle cover plates are history.
  • The extended thread length of the fine-tuner screw delivers a wider tuning range.
  • Improved locking nut and tailpiece shapes with a greater variety of radii.
  • For longer playing time without retuning

    About guitar neck profiles and playability

    The neck profile, your own hand, and the fretboard radius determine comfort and playability. A rounder fingerboard conforms more to the natural curvature of the fingers, which is ideal for playing in lower registers, such as chords and barré grips. A flat radius provides a more even playing surface, ideal for bending and faster vertical playing in higher registers, which is often preferred for solos.
