Locking Nut Cap Ayam


Bungkusan eBay ni diterima semalam, beralamat dari Hong Kong. Kali ni bukan berisi CD ataupun DVD, tapi berisi alat ganti kegitaran.


Ia berisi *dua unit locking nut (43 mm) untuk gitar yang mempunyai sistem Floyd Rose. Ia bukanlah berjenama Floyd Rose Original (FRO) mahupun Special (FRS), tapi hanyalah generic locking nut (tiada jenama aka "cap ayam") compatible untuk menggantikan locking nut pada Mirage aku yang bermasalah (loose) beberapa minggu lepas seperti dalam entri ni.


Setelah buntu mencari alat ganti secara online di Malaysia (ada, tapi mahal), aku mencarinya di eBay dan terjumpa beberapa seller dari China dan Hong Kong yang ada menjual alat ganti kegitaran pada harga borong (wholesale), sama macam kes kabel daisy chain dalam entri ni.

Dua unit locking nut ni harganya tak sampai pun RM30 termasuk pos, berbanding harga yang dijual di Malaysia sekitar RM40-60 untuk seunit locking nut FRS belum masuk kos pos (kalau FRO harga macam ni aku tak kisah).


Bila dibuka locking nut asal, ada secebis kayu halus yang digunakan sebagai shimming. Mungkin aku akan guna (atau tidak) shimming ni bergantung kepada ketinggian locking nut baru. Bro Yus (Yustech) sila komen kalau cara aku buka locking nut ni salah.

Atas FRS, bawah cap ayam.
Dengan mata kasar, terdapat perbezaan material antara kedua-dua locking nut ni. Material locking nut baru ni nampak seperti material yang digunakan pada sistem Edge-III Replacement aku dulu. Harap-harap ia setahan material locking nut FRS. Kalau tak tahan pun tak kisah sebab cap ayam dan harganya murah taklah nanti aku menyumpah-nyumpah, tapi kalau lebih tahan lagi bagus!


Walaupun ia bukanlah perfect fit (dalam 95-98% fit dengan shimming asal) tapi sekurang-kurangnya Mirage aku dapat digunakan semula. Dan setakat sessi pandu-uji malam tadi, talaan (tuning) pada gitar ni masih sama selepas penggunaan tremolo/whammy yang agak kasar, dalam bahasa teknikal gitar "stays in tune". Maknanya locking nut ni memang betul-betul "mengunci" tali gitar dengan ketat.

*Ya dua unit, seunit sebagai stok simpanan (backup). Tengah browse alat ganti kegitaran lain daripada seller yang sama...

Seriously aku masih bengap pasal Paypal dan eBay...aiyaaa

YusTech said...

Cara buka dan pasang agak straight forward.Cara shimming lebih kearah DIY.Saya sendiri mengguna bahan seperti Sandpaper atau Daddario packaging sebagai alas.

Soalan.

Radius Nut sama dengan asal?

adi:
ko xbaca betul2 terms & conditions

yustech:
nut asal ada tulis "R43-350" di blkg, 43mm lebar nut, so maybe radius nut 350mmR la kot? nut baru xde mention pasal radius, cuma lebar nut 43mm saja

marus:
locking nut ni eksklusif utk gitar2 elektrik yg guna double-locking floating bridge saja (atau yg guna low-tuning mcm 8-string) utk "mengunci" tali supaya tuning xlari bila tarik tremolo

Barangkali Marus Kamaruddin said...

Padu padu hal..ilmu baru yg aku sik ambik tauk sebelum tok..bagus juak peranan benda tok. Ada sik entri blog sebelum tok cerita pasal gitar ya .mun ada boleh pautkan link lok. Hahaha
