Re: Edge or ZR?

Edge, you can only go so far with the ZR, plus you can add a Tremol-no to the edge

Re: Edge or ZR?

Okay there was literally just a thread exactly like this
http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showth...=edge+backstop
please search

Btw ZR slays edge W/o the backstop in its the smoothest trem youll ever feel. Flutter for days and a breeze to setup. Looks good as hell. Ridicoulously perfect return to pitch, even after Mattias Ia/Vai abuse on the whammy. Its such a great trem.

And it comes with a intonation tool!

ZR rocks \00/

Re: Edge or ZR?

From a useable standpoint, I think that the ZR is simply designed better than the Edge trems. The fine tuners are awesome, the intonation tool helps out greatly, and it is definitely the smoothest trem around. All that, and looks sexy as hell.

ZR. I've never tried one, but I'm wanting a change. Been using Edge for 18 years.

Re: Edge or ZR?

I have both. It's hard to say which is better. I think they are both great. The ZR is smoother. But sometimes I think it's too smooth. The setup is a breeze with the zr and with the zps in place you can drop D tune in 30 seconds.

The edge has that nice "raw" feeling. To me, it feels like you don't have to move the trem bar as much to get the same effect. I feel more "connected" to it. Drop D is a pain with the edge (or any changing of tune). They both, when setup properly stay in tune regardless of the abuse thrown at them.

Both are awesome..Sorry...I can't pick just one.
