Idk if this is the right place. Move it if need be, mods.

Would a floyd rose or a edge III be better for de/droptuning?

That's all. lol. Thanks.

Neither of them are good for changing tunings quickly, but a floyd rose is better for everything else.

But all it takes is a little practice and patient and you can be good at changing tunings with a Floyd.


And he said which one is better, not which one do you think is good...

The Floyd.

I have a Schecter C-1 with a Liscened Floyd Rose and once you get it in tune (gotta tune it 3-4 times) and lock it down it won't go out of tune for nothing. I have my guitar in Drop A right now and when I dive and return I'm still in crisp perfect tune.

However, in trems of being fast, tremelo systems aren't fast for tuning to any tuning (including standard). If you want to be able to tune quickly, look into a fixed bridge.

I just warned him... If I would have told "the floyd is better", he wouldn't have known that it was still going to be hard.. at first.

I know it's hard to tune a trem regardless. I was just curious as to which would hold a drop tuning better. So it would be the floyd. Just curious. I know trems are hard to tune guys, i'm not totally dumb lol. Thanks for the help =)

What kind of Floyd are we talking about?


Just a floyd in general. Let's say the floyd on the schecter v fr or the edge 3 on the ibanez rg5ex1.

Floyd in general? You can go from LFR's to OFR's or Gotoh's LFR's, and that isn't very precise, however an Edge III will be an Edge II...since is not a brand

any kind of floating trem is terrible for changing tunings on stage, so if you're planning on changing tunings between songs, stay as far the **** away from a floating trem as you can.

With a proper setup any floating trem that would be good in standard would be good in drop tunings. I personally think the OFR is the best but others will disagree. It would require backing the spring tension off or possibly removing a spring.

So what floyd rose is that? The 1000? And like said if you are changing tunings alot stay away from the any floating bridge.
