the 2 thickest strings on me floyd rose speedloader tremolo are physically lower that the other 4 which makes it harder to play and adds a lot of fret buzz, could the speedloader saddles be defective or do i just need to have it professionally set up or do i need to somehow find replacement saddles. if my camera worked I's add pictures and may still later

Without seeing it not being familiar with the model, it sounds like the saddles are just low,

I meant bc rich. and i did change the string gauges, but i bought it used and all the other strings are level and i think they were messed up before i changed the string gauge. if strat strings arent level you can use an allen wrench to adjust is, is there any way 2 do this with a speedloader tremolo?

You can't adjust the saddles individually, on a Floyd. The saddles on a floyd are staggered to match the radius of your neck. Someone probably replaced those two saddles, with the incorrect ones, and they are too low.

take out the strings, pull the floyd off the pivot screws(the ones the knife edges rest on), and turn the low side screw counterclockwise about 1 or 2 turns. let the FR rest against the pivot screws, pop strings back in and check action. repeat until buzz stops.

f22master he's not saying his action is low on the Bass side, he says those two strings are physically lower than the other 4. Which has to be in the saddles. Not the action.
#11
^yes but raising the action will also raise those 2 strings which will get ride of any fret buzz. i would also suggest not changing the gauge of string on floyd roses without a complete set-up. it makes them play like ****.

I see your point with the raising of the strings, but i would much rather find a way to level them out, because if i raise the action the strings still won
t be level

Its either in your strings, or the saddles my friend. Like you said yourself, Adjusting the action will only raise them higher, not get them level with the other 4. I would check everything down there out real good, maybe even try different strings, and as a last resort I guess I would get some new saddles.

anyone know where i can buy speedloader string saddles?


Send an e-mail to Floyd Rose tech support and tell them of your issue. They will probably replace the saddles for you.

I've had the stock strings on my Speedloader for like 2 years and no rust at all. Although I rarely ever play that guitar.
