"When I was first told about Stone Tone blocks I admit, I was a bit skeptical. But being the tone enthusiast that I am, my attitude was "I will try it even if it makes the tone 5% better". I had a very important DVD film shoot with Guitar World Magazine coming up and I had just signed an endorsement deal with the mighty Dean Guitars, so I wanted my axes to be in tip top shape. I had my guitar tech Ernesto Hernandez install the blocks on my Floyd Rose tremolo systems and we were both happy with the tonal difference. The Blocks add some depth, punch, and overall sustain to the guitars and I love the feel of what they add to the mix. Try them out and Rock!!!" - Dave Reffett
