Lo Pro Edge issue ?

Hi guys,

A long time without posting here, I come back for help.

So I'm not a big trem user. I generaly put the trem arm on the guitar one time a year to simply have small tremolo effect, nothing insane...
But recently I did some barbaric playing and use the trem to do some Steve Vai things.
So I did discover something.
When I push the trem at maximum position, the strings become overcooked spaghetti, which is expected.

But the D string still have a lot of tension on it...???

Pitch returns perfectly after pushing or pulling.
Trem is at a correct angle.
Intonation is set up up correctly.
Movment seems smooth.

What is this weird D string issue ?

Thx in advance

That is normal.
Your bridge is fine.
Image line from tremolo post to post. Further the end of string is from line, more play or travel it has in using tremolo. So 3rd and 6th string will change pitch more then 1st and 4th. Just look at sadle positions. Try to find some tabs for favorite 80's song and you will see that mostly 3rd and 2nd string are used for harmonics.
On every Floyd type tremolo high e will change pitch less then any other string, simply because it is the closest to posts.
Stainberger trans trem move all 6 strings in same pitch, and you can even lock it in different tuning.

LoPro Edge does not transpose all strings by same amount,
like Steinberger's TransTrem.
At this amount ? I mean the D is still playable when all the others are just...overcooked spaghetti out of the fretboard.

Re: Lo Pro Edge issue ?

You notice the real difference in tension between all the different strings when you dive-bomb a whammy. You can tell which ones are exerting more of a pull on the guitar.

I seem to recall a discussion/argument on here many many moons ago round about the time I joined regarding this subject. One poster was advocating a balanced-tension string set, i.e. changing the individual string guages in order to achieve a better balance, unfortunately whilst an interesting subject the thread descended into a bit of a farce due to the OP being a bit arrogant and telling everybody "you are all wrong", against which everybody reacted...

Re: Lo Pro Edge issue ?

Sorry for my bad englush.

I think I understand the geometry of the saddles position but that is exactly why I find this more weird.

The D saddle has more amplitude movment than the E one and the B one because it is a bit at the back.
The pitch is also (obviously) a lot higher on these two strings than the D.
So why higher pitched string with a less saddle movment becomes an overcooked spaghetto when a lower pitched string with a more saddle movment does not ?

I don't believe that your high E can be totally slacked like spaghetti, I never saw that before.
Usually, High E and D have less change in pitch and tension, and low E and G have most change in pitch and tension.

Its because all the strings have different tension in them, that's why some are easier to bend than others, and why when you dip the whammy bar some flop like spaghetti as you say whereas others will remain fairly taut.

Nothing to worry about - it's normal
