Do you find that you get more volume with the discrete comb vs/ tremolo?
I have no trouble bending on my tremolos, I just don't find it all that
useful musically, in the context of what else I do on the tremolo. (And
that is mostly a matter of personal style/taste/technique).
This discussion has reminded me that I have wanted to try a discrete comb,
I'll have to get it back on my wish list. I'm just wondering what to
expect. Winslow, feel free to weigh in. (like I need to say that...)
p.s. On my Suzuki tremolos, the comb is about ~7mm thick (between the
plates), with ~0.5mm horizontal divider, and ~1mm vertical dividers. Is the
Yamaha substantially thicker than that? Wood or plastic?
