Floyd Rose Celebrates with Commemorative 40th Anniversary Tremolo System

This limited-edition model features a German-made tremolo base.

Wall Township, NJ (January 14, 2020) -- To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the world’s premier double-locking tremolo, Floyd Rose Marketing has announced their new 40th Anniversary Floyd Rose Original Tremolo System to premier at Winter NAMM 2020. Using a classic German-made tremolo base, this limited-edition bridge features ruby red fine tuner screws, stainless steel hardware, titanium insert blocks, and an upgraded Fat Brass Sustain Block to commemorate their ruby anniversary.

“It’s astonishing to think it has been four decades since it all started,” says Floyd Rose Marketing president (and former Kramer owner) Andy Papiccio. “From the very early days with Kramer until now, we’ve never given up on our commitment to making the best tremolo on Earth, while still keeping an eye on innovation and pushing the boundaries. We can’t thank everyone enough for their continued embrace of our hardware and keeping the Floyd Rose legacy alive.”

The company will be commemorating their founding with signings by Floyd D. Rose himself at NAMM in booth 5628. In an additional collaboration with Stone Tone Products, artists Chris Poland, George Lynch, and Jeff Loomis will also be in attendance at the booth signing posters.

The 40th Anniversary Tremolo System will be available for purchase after NAMM and for the remainder of 2020, so stay tuned to FloydRose.com for more information on availability!

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
