Re: What's the best Edge tremolo?
I can't stand original Edge trems because of the whale tail, but even Floyd Rose himself had to admit the Edge improved upon his design. Cast parts in stead of stamped means more mass and improved flutter over "real" floyds.
EdgePro is nice, adds intonation chips (sorta like the DoubleEdge), but lacks locking studs (essential for stability) also the plastic parts to hold the ball-ends are irrelevant once you string the ball-ends up at the tuners, but those can be removed.
EdgeZero is a Chinese piece of junk, stamped parts in stead of cast string blocks/saddles. Intonation tool screwed into the base, yuk.
Simply put the LoPro Edge is king; everything that's good about the Edge, with a lower profile. Plus the string saddles locks are independent from the fine tuners. The only problem is that it requires a separate intonation tool, but how often does one need that?
