Kat Eyz, got it!

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

Got my new Kat Eyz bridge today, finaly!  I got an old wood maple, with ebony top, pegged, with Crowe spacing. I like.  I believe because of the Crowe spacing there is more tension to the strings, and therefor more pop and volume. I also feel that there is more seperation between the strings in the sound. The tension is a great thing for my personal playing style as I have a tendency to get picking real hard, especialy live. I feel the notes better now. Tone wise not much changed, maybe a slight bit more growl and and ever so slight less round up the neck. I need to give it a day or two to play and tweakeverything tho. Over all a great bridge that I`m very happy with.
