Edge pro with tremol-no

Hey folks. Got a jem a couple weeks ago and I installed the tremol-no a week ago. Guitar wasn't staying in tune so I thought the strings need to stretch more. So I've been playing and stretching for a while. Today I noticed that the bridge never returns back to the same position when you use the whammy. So it will never be in tune. It's almost like there's no "zero point" for the edge pro. It always comes back either higher or lower than it was before depending on how you use the whammy bar and what direction you take. I'm really confused about this I was told the tremol-no would provide tuning stability among its others features. I'm a full floating guy so I have no need for the other features. But nonetheless they don't even work. The thumb screws are all the way in and the bridge still moves it just doesn't seem strong at all. I bought the item new and followed step by step the YouTube video. I'm running 10s on 3 springs and the bridge is parrallel and perfect to the body... Really don't know what's going on. Any help is appreciated can provide pictures as well.

Re: Edge pro with tremol-no

Tremol-no aids tuning stability when locked or in dive only mode. Zero point when using full floating will only ever be as good as you get your Edge Pro to balance, and if you have the Tremol-no set correctly. The locking of the spring claw to the attachment springs can sometimes throw it off from memory, but again if your Edge Pro is not correctly balanced, knife edges lubed, etc you'll have issues.

Re: Edge pro with tremol-no

I have an Apex 1 with a Tremol-no in it, and I just got another Apex 1 on Saturday that does not. In all honesty, I think I like it better without, and have it tuned A-flat, and I'm honestly surprised with the tuning stability. I may take the T-no off the other one. I think it is a cool idea, and I'm pretty good at setting up trems, but I think the locking mechanism makes it tougher to tune in northern climates, where we see SIGNIFICANT neck shifting throughout the year.
