Using A Large Block Of Nylon To Block Off A Trem


Recommended Posts

i got my hands on a large block of nylon to block off my schaller tremolo. im wondering though, will a big piece of nylon have a bad effect on the tone , sustain and general sound of the guitar?? was i better to look for a bit of teak or other hard wood?i thought nylon would be easier to work with as it can be filed into the perfect shape and size which is a little more difficult with wood.

Nylon, IMO will absorb the vibrations from the trem block. Will not sound worst, but it will not improve the tone. Try a piece of the same wood the guitar is made, (ash, maple. alder...) IMO it will be better. On the sustain, I don't think that nylon is much softer than wood, so I think it will be improved a bit.

Actually, it is a contraceptive for musicians, patent-pending. :D

Not quite as effective as a full-time job, but clinically proven to be 89% effective, when used properly.

Percentage of Musician's using it properly... .01%.

:D

Well you have to ask yourself, is it sponge worthy?
