Edge Vs Floyd Vs Schaller
OFRs and Schallers are made of hardened steel, so, they last longer and sound brighter. *Edges are made by Gotoh and are made of softer steel, or un-hardened steel, therefore they sound warmer but consequently wear out faster. *(The knife edges on an Edge or LP Edge are hardened, just wanted to make that clear.) *I like them all, and they all stay in tune if they are set up properly, I have never noticed one system to stay in tube better than the other, I have had guitars that went out of tune more than others but I think it was more the guitar than the trem. *
BTW, I don't have any OFRs now, I have 2 Robins with Kahler Steelers which are a "better" OFR, unfortunately they aren't made now. *They work great too and are made of hardened steel.
