1980s Common Thread: Jeff Loven, Def Leppard, Steve Vai & Motley Crue

Historic usage

Kahler tremelo systems were most popular in the 1980s, with users such as Steve Vai, Earl Slick, Jeff Loven, Adrian Belew and Jerry Peek and bands such as Judas Priest, Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe. Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King of Slayer still use Kahlers today, and
they swear by them.

Guitarist Jerry Cantrell, formerly of the 1990s band Alice In Chains, was oft to be seen with the G&L Rampage model, a guitar that
had the Kahler tremolo unit fitted as standard equipment.
