  • 4/16/2008 - Tony Smotherman Rocks the Kahler
    April 16, 2008 – Oceanside, CA   Kahler International would like to announce the new endorsement of guitarist, Tony Smotherman.  Tony has been burning up the industry of late with his amazing skills and melodic tunes and we are very pleased to have him as part of the Kahler family.

    Tony is now using the Kahler flat mount bridges featured on his Halo guitars.  The bridge brings total versatility to the guitar - something a skilled craftsman like Tony needs.  “The Kahler Tremelo System is by far the Best Tremelo I have ever used. I can lock it down to a hard tail or whammy away whenever I feel like it, nothing comes close to my Kahler Trem" – Tony Smotherman

    Tony has been featured in Guitar Player magazine three times over the past year alone.  Although his music is rooted to rock, his unique, worldly influences have given him an identity all his own.  Even the Queen herself thinks this guy can play!  She says his guitar skills are highly sophisticated.  He has shared the stage with Adrian Legg, Joe Satriani and Buddy Miles.  Chops From Hell has produced two instructional DVD’s and his latest recording, The Light Within features Derek Sherinian on keys and fellow Kahler endorser, Jon Reshard on bass.  To learn more about Tony, visit his website at www.tonysmotherman.com.

    About Kahler International, Inc.
    Kahler International, Inc. is the leading manufacture of tremolo and fixed bridge systems for electric guitar and bass. Used by guitar and bass manufacture's, high profile endorser's and musicians alike, Kahler proudly maintains its recognition as the reliable, quality performing bridge of choice throughout the world.
