The Jake Blade is an innovative breakthrough for guitarists looking for an alternative to the traditional “whammy bar”. The Jake Blade allows the guitarist to stretch (bend) and collapse (dive) the strings by applying pressure from the fingers or palm to the blade. The range is much broader than a whammy and with a little practice the guitarist will notice enhanced tremolo effects. And perhaps best of all, unlike a traditional whammy the Jake Blade’s ergonomic design does not get in your way as you play!
The original Jake Blade, patented in 2008 by Mark Benjamin, founder of RoughGauge LLC, was hand made in small batches over an anvil resulting in a truly unique yet durable product that guitarists like Jake Cinninger and Brendan Bayless of Umphrey’s Mcgee have depended on show after show, year after year with great success.
NOTE: The Jake Blade does not come with an arm coupling assembly, so you must pick the one that best matches your tremolo's existing housing.
