How the reinvention started
A professional guitarist, Isaac Vega, a luthier, a drill, a milling machine and a lot of enthusiasm: this is how the VT1 story began in 2013. After four years of testing, hundreds of hours of research and a multitude of prototypes later, came the final crucial test: Trying it out in a live concert in real conditions with professional guitar players. The result is here: everyone agreed that the VT1, the first product of VegaTrem, is a tremolo mechanically, musically and aesthetically superior to any other available on the market, so get yourself a VT1 UltraTrem, you’ll make history.
The tremolo, reinvented
You wanted a floating bridge that did not force you to drill into or modify your beloved ST guitar, so we did it. You desired a vibrato bridge that did not stick out more than the original bridge, and here it is. You imagined total freedom of movement and a whammy bar that never caused bother and here it is. You fantasized about a tremolo free of unwanted noises and now that dream has come true. You wanted to get rid of the hassle of microtuners. You have it. Welcome to the VT1 UltraTrem: the tremolo, reinvented.
