lo pro edge vs edge pro 7

I've got an rg1527cb with the edge pro 7 trem in it and I put a lo pro edge in my js100. The lo pro edge is sooooo easy to pull up and push down, but the edge pro 7 is a lot more stiff. Is there anything I can do to get the edge pro to respond as easily as the lo pro? I'm pretty sure I have the same number of springs on each (though I'm not at home to check right now). Are some trems just stiffer than others or is it all in how it's set up?

Also, where do I get replacement rings for the bar? My lo pro edge bar always falls south when I let go of it, but my edge pro still has some life left in the rings, so it stays put pretty well when released. Thanks.

Re: lo pro edge vs edge pro 7

Well, you've got 7 "springs" on one, and 6 "springs" on the other... Couldn't that account for the diff? Esp. if the 6 string one happens to be downtuned.

Re: lo pro edge vs edge pro 7

Well, The Lo Pro Edge has six strings, presumably 9-42, while the Edge Pro 7 has seven strings, presumably 9-42 with a 52 or 54 - you've got one extra heavy-guage string on the 1527 adding a lot of extra tension to that trem.

As a rule, 7's will always feel "stiffer" than 6's. You could try running the 7 with a two spring setup and just tightening them up as far as you can get them, but that might not provide enough tension to keep the trem level (as two springs will feel looser than three when both are providing the same tension).

I, too, have an RG1527 that feels really tight, but then again, I never played a 7 that didn't.

As far as getting replacement rings, you might try Rich (click on the swirly link at the top of the page).
