Sandy Peek's Final design before he passed... The BELL BLOCK for Floyd Rose

Press Release:  6/15/2021

 

 

Killer Guitar Components Adds to its Unique Guitar Upgrades with “Bell Block”

 

Direct-Fit, Top Quality Machined Brass Tremolo Block

 

Gloucester, Mass. (June 15, 2021) — In the wake of Founder, Sandy Peek’s, untimely death after a brief battle with cancer, KGC is releasing his final feat of engineering left behind on what would have been his 70th birthday – June 15th.  After many years of manufacturing tremolo blocks and other tone upgrades, the Bell block was created with a history of tone and quality in mind.  The KGC Bell Block is machined (not cast) from the highest quality musical brass alloy.  It is the first design of its kind and offers the Floyd Rose player an option that is not just the same old idea created in a different material.  This is truly attaching a bell to your bridge – and the results are amazing! 

 

CNC machined and hand finished to perfection, It comes with 3 extra long stainless steel mounting screws for secure attachment. Installation is extremely easy and requires no permanent modifications to the guitar. 

 

A Bell Block user can expect notable increase in sustain, resonance and a sweet but articulate tonal change.  The Bell Block, in comparison to the standard brass big blocks you can buy all over these days, provides a less muddy, more booming low to midrange and a sweeter top end.  Note to note definition is greatly improved and you retain the character of the guitar – not overpowering its natural tones. 

 

The KGC Bell Block is currently available for purchase through the Killer Guitar Components Reverb Store and soon at the newly revamped KillerGuitar.com.  The Bell Block design is currently made to fit the standard Floyd mounting of the Original, 1000 and Special Series bridges.  Soon, they will also be available for Original Edge model tremolos as well.  Introductory Retail Price of $70-$78 depending on height (32mm to 42mm).  installation instructions and LIFETIME guarantee.  For Dealer Inquiries, please contact Business Manager Rick Peek at This email address is being protected from spambots.

FEBRUARY 7, 2021:

Today is a sad day here at KGC and for the guitar world.  Sandy Peek, the proprietor and designer of all things KGC has passed away at 11:45 EST at the age of 69.  Sandy leaves behind a wife, Sally of 52 years, 2 adult children - Lisa and Rick and 3 grandchildren - who all loved him dearly.  Sandy spent the past 12+ years side by side with Rick creating KGC and making the World's Finest Guitar Parts - most by hand, one at a time.  Sandy was genius level when it came to prototypes and designs - which is why KGC parts are so sought after.  Rick will continue to hold the torch high for the Peek family and for KGC.  Condolences can be sent via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or by mail (KGC 40 Englewood Rd. Gloucester, MA 01930)

Thank you to all the KGC customers in the past 12 years who have helped make Sandy's dream a reality - working on guitars, with his son every day until he couldn't do it anymore.  Rest in Peace and Keep Rockin', Sandy.  You will be dearly missed.
