Mensagem 4 1/4" tremolo arm do Gilmour (Whammy bar menor)
Alguém já reduziu uma alavanca pro tamanho da do Gilmour? Qual a manha? Só cortar e depois entortar levemente?

Achei caro quase R$60 só pra brincar um pouquinho.. :mrgreen: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Strat-Style-Super-Short-4-1-4-Tremolo-Arm-/280384963446?pt=Guitar_Accessories&hash=item41483f0376

Alexm, eu encurtei a minha eu mesmo.
Não ficou um trabalho primoroooooooooso, mas funcionou.
Cortei usando uma microrretífica, e entortei levemente. Depois foi só encaixar o tremolo tip e pronto!

Já li que tem gente (incluindo o próprio Gilmour) que cortou simplesmente usando uma serra para metal.

Só cuidado ao fixar a barra do tremolo na hora de cortar/entortar, ou senão irá marcar o cromado dela. Envolva a barra com pano para depois fixar.

Tem um site onde ensina um tutorial com imagens:

CHOPPING THE TREMOLO ARM
I cut my tremolo (or whammy) arm short, about 133mm (5 1/4“), to fit in my palm when playing. My first guitar was already set up like this, so I have always shortened them, and Gilmour does this too. If it is the right length you can grasp it with your pinky and third finger while holding the pick with your other two fingers and it does not interfere with normal playing like a longer stock trem arm will. If you do this, check where your hand normally rests over the pickups when you play and measure the trem arm from the bend almost to the center of your palm to see how far to shorten it. Keep in mind the plastic tip will add some length after you reattach it so stick a piece of wire into the tip hole to determine how far the trem arm extends into it before you cut. My tip was 6mm (1/4”) longer than the trem arm.

Unscrew the plastic trem tip from the bar and mark your distance, adding to what you measured to compensate for the added plastic tip length. Lock the arm in a vice but be sure to wrap the arm in a piece of leather, rubber, or rag so the vice does not scratch it. You can cut it with a steel saw, or use a Dremel tool or similar hand held device (wear eye protection!). I used a steel disk cutter with a Dremel tool. I also ground the sharp edges down after the cut with a sanding bit. You won't have any threads to screw the plastic tip back on after cutting it short, but you can glue it back on with a good two part epoxy, or heat the end of the trem arm with a flame for a minute, then push the tip back on tight. I put a small spring in the bottom of my trem arm hole to prevent it from screwing in too low in the Callaham block. That adds to the resistance and helps keep the bar from coming loose over time. If you do this, DON'T use a spring that is too large or it can jam in the screw threads and strip them. I also bent my trem arm up slightly in a vice to keep it roughly parallel with the guitar body because my floating bridge is angled high, but most people will not need to do this. Be aware that most trem arms are hardened steel, so if you do re-bend, do it slowly or you may risk breaking the bar.

Valeu pelas dicas, aguerreiro!

De qualquer forma, acho que vou comprar uma extra no ML pra não ter perigo de estragar a que veio na minha Strato.. :wink:
