Original edge vs lo pro

Sorry if this topic has been battered to death but what trem do you think is better edge or lo pro? Is the lo pro worth the extra £££.

Re: Original edge vs lo pro

either is totally fine...some prefer having the lo pro as it has less to get in the way of your hand...i prefer the original edge as i am accustomed to feeling the edge of the trem with my right hand...my jem has an edge pro that took some serious adjustments for me because its sunk so low into the body i can't really tell that there's actually a trem there without looking lol...d.m.

Re: Original edge vs lo pro

I personally prefer the Lo Pro. Because of how I position my picking hand over/on the trem, the fine-tuners of the original Edge get in my way--but that's just me. Personal preference. I can't objectively say which one is actually "better"... only what's better for me.

Same goes for Floyd Rose trems. I only like the "Pro" versions, which are like the Lo Pro Edge in that their fine-tuners are angled back and out of the way of my picking hand.

Re: Original edge vs lo pro

I do not like the original Floyd because of the position of the fine tuners. It feels as if there is no "space" for the hand.

However the original Edge is build similar but the fine tuners have this kind of slight angle. Works perfectly for me. I never feel that they are there.

Re: Original edge vs lo pro

Both are good but if i had to pick one i would choose the lo pro due to the edge string lock screws location. It's the only disadvantage i see when i make the setups.

Re: Original edge vs lo pro

i like the original edge better. It seemed easier to setup at least to me. Both are excellent trems.

Re: Original edge vs lo pro

One is not "better" than the other. Just preference so if you can get the Edge for less money, go that way.

Re: Original edge vs lo pro

I have both, neither is better. Tuning stability wise both are the same and setup wise both are the same, the original does flutter more but is also more sensitive to hand placement, the Lo Pro is designed in a way that gives more stability meaning it won't flutter as much or be as affected by hand resting. If I had a preference then it's probably the Lo-Pro as I find it easier to be more subtle with it.
