Searchbar yielded keine resultse..

So, to drop the height of my strings via floyd adjustment, do i clockwise turn the 'pivot' screws?

I kind of lightly tried that already with my strings tight, but the thing wouldn't budge..

Plus do i have to loosten the strings first? If so, I thought that was like, blasphemy, and ruined everything.. intonation wise, so how am i gonna go about loostening strings when it's considered bad to do anything but replace every string taken off when restringing..?

So any help would be appreciated.

NOOOO take the strings off or loosen completely....then turn the screws clockwise for lower...anti for higher....also adjust screws in the back where the spring and clamp is so that the floyd plate is PARALLEL to the body. search bar should yield result my friend...try google and such

hehe yeah..in general dont do stuff when they re "under pressure"...except tuning pegs which are made for that but if u screw them when the strings are tight then yeha u ll get material damage

You don't need to do anything to the strings - what guitar is it and what bridge?

it's a dean superstrat with an original floyd, and these pivot posts are chronically stiff, like if I try and tighten them the screw head will be wrecked..

any ideas steven good sir?

I have adujsted the action on my floyd while the strings were in-tune, and it didn't break anything or throw the strings out of adjustment.

Yeah, you should loosen the strings, rotating the pivots while it's under pressure causes friction damage, and can wear out the knife edges. Lubricate the knife edges with candle wax if you can, it'll reduce friction.

I've never loosened strings to adjust the action on a Floyd and I've never broken one either.
