Abstract
(EN)
A tremolo assembly for a stringed instrument such as a guitar can be used in an instrument comprising a body, a neck and a head. Strings are strung between the head and the tremolo assembly. The tremolo assembly comprises a base plate which is mounted to the body and a tone block which is pivotally attached to the base plate and extends into a cavity in the body. Saddles are attached to a top of the base plate in front of the tone block. The strings are strung over both the saddles and the tone block, and attached to the tone block near a bottom thereof. One or more tone block springs are attached between a lower portion of the tone block and the body. A tension bar is held against the back of a lower portion of the tone block by at least one tension bar spring when the tone block is in a neutral position. Stopping means are provided to prevent the tension bar from urging the tone block forward of the neutral position.

La présente invention concerne un ensemble trémolo pour instrument à cordes tel qu'une guitare, s'utilisant sur un instrument à caisse, manche et tête. Les cordes tiennent entre la tête et l'ensemble trémolo qui comprend une platine de base sur la caisse avec un tambour pivotant sur la platine et descendant dans une cavité de la caisse. Des sillets sont fixés au dessus de la platine, devant le tambour. Les cordes, qui passent au-dessus des sillets et du tambour, sont fixées au tambour près de sa base. Un ou plusieurs ressorts de tambour sont montés entre le bas du tambour et la caisse. Lorsque le tambour est en position neutre, un ou plusieurs ressorts maintiennent une barre de tension contre l'arrière du bas du tambour. Des arrêtoirs empêchent la barre de tension de pousser le tambour en avant de la position neutre.
