You can add wavering, singing tremolo to your playing, giving you the legendary, distinctive tones that only tremolo can create. Furthermore, a super-strong Graph Tech string nut will help you to stay in-tune no matter how liberally you use the whammy bar. Freedom to experiment without worrying about your tuning.
