Sophia Global Tuner Pro Primer Video
Video Focuses on:
1) Adjusting the Dual Stabilizer Contact Pins for various sized tremolo pockets,
2) Installing the Felt tab or Strip to reduce return noise,
3) Installing tremolo springs like on other floating setups, and Fine tuning the returns with very small turns, 1/8th, for example, of the tremolo spring claw screws.
4) Each screw tunes the respective side of the returns.
Balancing Returns Is Critical to Stabilization
Make sure all strings are at [very close] pitch as well as intonation and truss rod are in tune when balancing since you want the guitar balanced to the setup….
Post-Setup Re-calibration technique....
If you feel lost in balancing the Stabilizers and you feel confident about the position of the contact pins try this approach:
Use the Global Tuner Thumbwheel to Pitch Tune the Tremolo
For example, the entire instrument is generally flat 6 cents, flip the guitar and turn [unlocked] Global Tuner Thumbwheel within the recess once or twice to see the instrument return to Initial Tuning with many of the interrelationships between the string restored ....
Ensure the truss rod tension when using the Global Tuner Thumbwheel to address environmental issues
All stabilizers are sensitive to the setup of fulcrum tremolos
Test guitar is 6 cents flat and loosing tuning relationships ....
~1/3 Turn of the Thumbwheel Returns the Guitar to Pitch and Restores Inter-String Tuning Relationships
Stabilizers Enhances Acoustic Qualities -- Increase Surface Area of Contact between the Tremolo and the Body....
