I saw that there is a Drop-D tuner for Floyd Rose and whatnot, but do they have a Drop-D tuner for the Ibanez Edge 3... they seem to be a different set-up, so they probably don't work interchanged (???), and I haven't found one for the Edge 3.

I'll admit, i haven't searched all that hard, so i was just wondering if someone here can answer first. Save me the trouble

You make it sound like a drop d tuning is an object that you get for your guitar... can't you just um drop the tuning to D? You shouldn't need to change anything to do so with an ibanez tremolo

There's the D-Tuna which can switch between standard and drop d instantly. You obviously don't know **** about trems
Edit: if he just dropped the low E wouldn't all the other strings go out of tune?

lal I don't play in drop tunings, and the fact that I don't know about a product that alows you to drop to d and back clearly shows that I don't know anything about tremolo.

ok yes you can tune your guitar with the locks and tremolo and all that jazz to drop D, if you want to spend the next 30 minutes standing on stage. And i don't have nearly the patience to deal with something like that.

No the item i saw was the EVH Drop D tuning system, on musician's friend. Like i said i haven't searched all that hard.

I know there is a piece that can drop it instantly without hastle "PERSON" but your right i still don't know S*** about trems... or much about guitar for that matter. I just want to play them, i take them elsewhere when there's something mechanical wrong.

Not for the Edge 3 there isn't , or indeed any full-floating trem. The D-Tuna only works on Original Floyd-type bridges where the string bolts extend back through the whale tail, and your trem also has to sit flat on the guitar body with no up-pull.

The EVH system is the D-Tuna

Is it possible to modify a floating trem in order to have that work??? Some descriptions of the D-tuner have said that some trem's need be modified to work... is this what they were describing???

If not that really blows, 'cuz regardless of how little i care for drop d playing, i need it for the band i'm in, and i don't feel like trading in my guitar 'cuz i like it, and i have all of nothing in cash reserves to get another guitar

Is there anything else as a substitute to buying a Drop D tuner that i could use to quickly, or in somewhat of a time saving fashion, re-tune my guitar from standard to drop???

Honestly, I think that you need to replace that edge III with an OFR, they aren't very...well, reliable.

Lol, do you^ even get your trem set up and maintained? Were you trying to mimic Herman Li?

lol @ Edge III
Route a OFR in there pronto. The Edge III is an utter piece of garbage that Ibanez is going to the 5th level of Guitar Hell for making.
#17
i was considering that anways... too bad though, because so far the edge 3 hasn't been bad to me... i use it alot, but not "Herman Li" by any means...

probably just get a floyd rose anyways. Save me the trouble

How much is that? $120 maybe, give or take a few, without installation???

I *think* an Original floyd is a drop in for an Edge III. The cheapest I've seen an OFR is $170 on Warmoth. if it's not, then I believe NYCandres wrote a guide about it. Give him a shout.

It doesn't really matter about the floating as far as the Edge 3 goes, it's the wrong design anyway - the D Tuna won't work on low profile bridges.

^ agreed.

grollman guitars (was reviewed in guitar and bass magazine a month or two ago) have supposedly patented a system which lets you use the d-tuna with a floating trem (it blocks the bridge or something)... also, i guess a tremol-no would work too if you only engaged the d-tuna when you had the bridge either locked or in dive-only...

you'd need an extra rout for the d-tuna though if you don't want to serious limit up-pull though...
