Kahler Spyder Trems for HM Strats – N.O.S available

PLAG reader JH has just informed me that there is a number of NOS Spyders available from At over 249 USD apiece, they are a bit pricey, but if a new bridge is all you need to resurrect an otherwise great HM Strat, I suppose it’s a small price to pay. If your bridge looks like my old one below, you know what to do…

Thanks for the tip, JH!

Thanks for the heads up regarding wammiworld. I’ve got some 20 year
old shred machines in the house and some of them could use some real
trem refurbishment.

Hi Lori,

It’s a pleasant surprise to read a new post here.

Is the white screw used for the high E a custom fit?

Very glad to see you posting. I started reading guitar blogs because of you! And now I’m listening to Vai and Malmsteen and Zappa again. More?

Hi all… :bunny: :bunny: :bunny:

Yup, slowly but surely I’m reactivating my blogging muscles. Nice to see that someone else besides my mom (hi Mom!) still checks my feed!

@Jomaheux: the silver screw was a MacGuyvered replacement because the allen-key bolt was stripped. I later replaced the whole part when I got my hands on some spares.

Ah! Ingenuity!

To avoid stripping my Floyds bolts,when tigthening those,i hold the allen wrench by the short part.

Lori!!! (THE GREATEST METAL DIVA OF ALL TIME!!!) :] I just have a question for you why is it that some people think that Spyder’s are better than Original Floyd Roeses?

Wow Lori, you cannot even imagine how happy I am that you started blogging again!
I found your blog when it was already dead, and really regretted that.

By the way you are the person who actually made me understand modes, and I really like your work with Stream Of Passion and Ayreon.

Really hope that our comments will make you start blogging actively again :]

First of all I must say a quite stupid thing for you but it made me very happy :razz:

Today I recived a mail from Arjen Lucassen Management because I had a SoP t-shirt ordered, and you sent it, that means I have a mail written by you on my mail box :grin: thats really cool.
And if you are really the one that packs the orders it means that mine will be packed by you and thats also really cool! :woohoo:

Ok I sound like a groupie lol

Anyway, I hope you keep on blogging because your blog is really helpful, im a bass player, not a guitar player, but since i found this blog ive practised more on my guitar (which was forgotten at the bottom of my room). Also, it increases my motivation for both guitar and bass so thank you! :guitar: :guitar:

Hi Lori! :bunny:

I know you heard this already but I am glad to finally see a new post from your blog. I’ve learned some great lessons from you which is really encouraging and off course inspiring and with a good sense of humor. Looking forward to more of your future updates, and of course, I can’t wait to hear more of your music!

Take care :grin:
