AP International Releases Tone Claw Locking Spring Claw to Launch New AxLabs Guitar Hardware Line
WALL TOWNSHIP, NJ – AP International, manufacturer and distributor of Floyd Rose Tremolo Systems, is pleased to announce the release of the innovative Tone Claw locking spring claw for tremolo-equipped guitars.
The Tone Claw is a robust spring claw engineered with a locking clamp plate to lock the springs down at the hoop ends. CNC-machined from solid brass and at 4x the mass of a traditional claw, the Tone Claw is designed to enhance tone and increase sustain while also aiding tuning stability by preventing the springs from shifting during tremolo dives.
As the last distribution point of vibrational energy on a synchronized tremolo, the Tone Claw replaces the traditional stamped tin claw found in many guitars. Installation is a direct swap for most existing spring claws such as those from Fender®, Floyd Rose®, PRS®, Ibanez, and many others. The kit includes all hardware necessary for installation: four quality steel springs and two claw mounting screws. An adjustable ground soldering tab is also integrated which can be switched between two available mounting holes depending on required orientation. The claw is available in either raw brass or a nickel-plated finish.
With over forty years of experience in manufacturing and distribution, AP International has long been a pillar in the music industry. Their new line of AxLabs Guitar Hardware will be unveiling new innovations as well as many classic replacement parts throughout 2021.
