Re: floyd rose vs. edge pro

It's based on preference, really. They're both very good, and are made by repectable companies i.e Floyds are manufactured by (I believe) Schaller and the Edge bridges are made by Gotoh. I for one prefer the Edge Pro over the Original Floyd.

Oh yeah, good luck on finding a new Edge Pro.

Re: floyd rose vs. edge pro

I thought Schaller was just another company liscenced to make them. Although Schaller does do a hell of a lot better than many of the other companie's. Floyd Rose still makes thier own to my knowledge, but they liscence many other companies aswell.

Hmm, maybe so. But I've read somewhere that even the Original ones are made by Schaller. Though I may have misread.

Re: floyd rose vs. edge pro

For info about Floyd Rose's history, you can find it here:

http://www.vintagekramer.com/parts6.htm

Main difference between an OFR and an Edge is that OFR's hardwards last longer. They are more solid IMHO.

Both will stay in tune if setted up correctly.

my two cents

You can find info about the speedloader here:

http://www.floydrose.com/speedloader.html

Personally, i've no tried them before, but what i heard is that if you want to get a speedloader, get the real thing not the licensed speedloaders like those on the cheaper BCR.

Another thing you might want to take into consideration is that there are specified strings used for the speedloader trems.

Re: floyd rose vs. edge pro

I quite like OFR trems and Edge Pro's. I've got an Edge Pro on my Rg1550 that i like and when i was trying out a guitar today which had an OFR i found the OFR to be easier to do stuff with. More responsive i guess you could say. Then again, i have 10s on my Ibanez and the model i tried had 9s

Re: floyd rose vs. edge pro

i dont understand why the edge pro's are soooo much more money than the OFR's if they are pretty much the same exept for edge is spaced more.

Re: floyd rose vs. edge pro

I like Edge and LoPros over the OFR but the OFR over the Edge Pro. Why? The Edge Pro doesn't have an intonation tool.

Re: floyd rose vs. edge pro

a egde is more smooth and easy to work..the ofr is alittle more stiff and doesn't have a as higher pull up as the egde ..but i like ofr better better they feel more solid...i replace any trems i have with one..so it's really just a pefered thing for who is using them.

Very few Floyds are made by themselves anymore - they can't make enough of them.

An intonation tool would be nice and make setups a lot easier, but it's not a big deal to me.

I like the Lo-pros and the Edge Pros about the same and hands down over the OFR.
