I like them better than my floyd...now sure how maintenance is on a kahler though.

They also have a more badass trem arm XD

Khaler trems have less tuning stability, in the sense that, when doing heavy bending (like, 2 steps or more) it'll go out of tune.

however, depressing the trem slightly will put it right back into tune.

I personally love Khalers. I use the Hybrid.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

i think its actually simpler than a floyd. you just oil it every now and then and thats it. you dont even need to cut the ends of the strings for a kahler. a big plus for me since i dont have wire cutters.
EDIT*
For the guy above me.......i have a original kahler it came on my carvin.

A big plus for you, a big minus for tuning stability. There's a reason double locking bridges have the most stable tuning, be it trem or hardtail - string is fixed dead at both ends, no slippage. Kahlers aren't double locking, and slip at the bridge like any good ole strat trem.

that thing right there really helps my tuning and its stability. i laugh in your face. it came with my carvin. kahlers can be double locking too you know. at both the nut or ass an add on. that pic is a kahler double locking one that came on mine.

yep.

I prefer FR's or Super Vees as locking systems go... non locking, the Wilkinson VS100 for sure.
Side note: has anyone ever tried a super vee?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Laugh all you want, but it's single locking, at the nut. Or, as this case would be, behind the nut, which is significantly more lame than at the nut.

I prefer the Kahler Hybrid on my KKV Sig compared to the FR on my TTM. Then again the TTM LFR is a complete piece of itshay.

To me the Kahler is just plain easier to maintain.
