Yeah, sure. I used DR's all the time when I still had Floyds.

Did you crimp before the cut?

Thanks

Nope, just cut the ball off and string it up like normal. Whenever you lock the string into the saddle it crimps the end in the process by squeezing the living crap outta it when you tighten the screw.

Totally should have thought about that. Will I have to change the intonation much or is that a guitar dependent question?
