I loved it. Before the arm holder snapped. Yeah it broke in half. I Didn't even abuse it. So I stayed away from them ever since.

Hi, for the schaller mode use this:
http://guitar-tremolo.com/hp135234/Artikel-Liste.htm

It's the arm for specific Schaller Tremolos (Schaller Tremolo, LockMeister,
Low Profile, Vintage Tremolo too).

better than some other ibanez trems, but on par with original edge and edge pro in my opinion. smoother than original floyds and other knife edge trems

The only difference with the original is that the arm is a bit
highest. You can't set the height of the bar.

Schaller Mod +1
I did that too.. Actually on two S-models. Great trems after the mod. I do it for every single trem (except kahlers) and I just feel that it makes flutters and stuff so much easier.

I hope they can ship in italy. I Have the 1st ZR Tremolo, the one with
the D-Tuning on the E string saddle.
That's the one.

I am not sure if Stew Mac does international shipping, would be a bit more pricey.

Cool, I think you should be fine.

Update us when you do the mod!

Well you know how the 1st generation ZR's have the unreliable trem arm assembly?
This mod fixes that, I saw it mentioned here by some other members and tried it (it's really, really easy)

You get a Schaller trem arm from Stew Mac ($19 shipped for chrome arm)
Unscrew your loose ZR arm holder assembly (just a nut under tremolo base plate)
Slide the new arm assembly in
Tighten the Allen screw,
DONE

It improves the feel and flutter tremendously and the way it locks makes it more convenient than before.

I don't know if this mod is possible on 2nd or 3rd generation ZRs though.

Re: is the zr a good trem....................?

I have one on my S2170FB Prestige and its pretty solid and stays in tune. Definitely one of the better trems out right now IMO.
