Hey all.
I've got a problem.
When I lift my high e string one half step my low e is already 3 half steps up.
How do I make this less noticeable?
I would love to do this because I won't snap my low E string when bending my high e up 3 half steps.

That's just the nature of floating trems. They are fully floating, so anything you do on one string will affect all of the others.
Spin 'round carousel when your horse isn't screwed in.

I don't mean it that way.
I want to get this less noticable.
So I can go crazy with the bar without breaking my low e.

Are you pulling up, or pushing down?

You're not going to break your low E. Every single Floyd Rose Ever has done this.
You can call me Aaron.

You do know I'm pulling up right?
And with low E I mean the thick one not the lowest one from your face.

Yes and yes. It's more likely for you to break your high e anyway.

Yes and you do know that my whammy bends extremly out of tune right?
And that was a new set of strings

Then just bend the string with your hands. You aren't meant to use the trem for every bend you do, especially if you're going up that high.

The only trem that bends the strings in tune with each other is the Steinberg Trans-Trem system. Otherwise, the different gauges and natures of the wound/unwound strings cause them to react differently to the bridge being raised or lowered. You really can't avoid it; it's physics.

The Trans-trem is amazing. You can actually bend entire chords and every single string will remain in tune. I've tried it. I've got severe GAS for a ZT-3
