edge pro vs lo pro edge

Is there a big difference between the lo pro and the edge pro.

Re: edge pro vs lo pro edge

personally, I like the edge pro better, I like how it looks, how it feels and I donīt use a lot of flutter but it certainly does not lack o flutter

I'd beg to differ. In a competition against the Original Edge, the edge pro flutters like a fat guy dances - horribly.

I like the Lo-pro, it's kind of in the middle, but my favorite is my edge. I have all three trems, but the Edge Pro is the lesser of the three in my book. I'm not the only one who feels that way. However, i prefer it over Floyd rose's and any other variety of the Floyd (Schaller, Gotoh etc).

Re: edge pro vs lo pro edge

I enjoy the feel of the edge pro more than the lo pro as well. Sure the lo pro excels at some things but overtime I really got adjusted to playing with the edge pro.

Just my two cents.

Re: edge pro vs lo pro edge

I have a feeling the only reason anyone thinks the LoPro flutters any better is simply due to the being on older guitars with worn springs.

Slap new springs in an EdgePro and a LoPro and try again. I can't imagine there's any real difference, unless the one has a substantially heavier trem block.

I changed my springs, and do every 3 years. They're so cheap to get anyways...

I'm not good enough to tell the difference.
