Today you can choose between vibrato/tremolo and fixed guitar bridges, but after the choice is made, you have basically just the same effects - if any - from your guitar bridge as all who have the same hardware.

With RiffMeister, choosing it is just the beginning. You can set it up in so many ways that there is a chance that your setup is unique.

Just as an example, you can set E1 string to be taken from slack to almost breaking point – which is five semitones up to A, and the other strings e.g. so that you can bend a chord in pitch. With E1 taken up to A, artificial harmonics are awesome – and plucking the strings when they are slack and letting them slowly climb into tune sounds like B-17 bomber falling down towards you.

Or you can arrange E6 and A5 strings to be fixed, with no action, so that you can play a constant bass line with them while overlaying the effects you want with the other strings by actuating the arm.

And naturally you can mimic a B-bender by having action only in the B and/or G string(s).

There is also the possibility to mimic a typical tremolo by having the same action for all strings – while still enjoying the other RiffMeister advantages.

You can also use a Drop-D tuning device without losing any of the features and functions - you can just change between E and D whenever you like, even in the middle of your solo. You will not feel the change, just hear it.

It is even possible to set the mechanism so that breaking one string does not alter the pitches of the remaining strings.

And finally - with RiffMeister, you can play everything, whether it is intended for a fixed bridge or a tremolo-equipped guitar. Taking this even further, you can play and also write music where some parts would need a fixed bridge and some parts a tremolo - RiffMeister handles them all.
