Anyone have any experience with the Floyd Rose Special 7s? I was sniffing around for a new trem to stick in my 7420 and black OFR7's are almost of mythical status now.
Anyway, I haven't heard too much about them, and wanted to know if it's an upgrade or not. As for my playing, I don't channel Vai all the time, but I do like the occasional squuueeeee or wobba wobba-ERRRT. You know.
I read this, and it had some cool info, but nothing about the quality of the Special itself..
well, the Lo-TRS 7 (as seen on the 7420) is a Takeuchi, and made in japan. I never had any issues with the one in my 7420, other than the fact that it looked kinda cheap.
I like the Special 7 a bit more, but it needs some work. Yes, it's made by someone under direct contact to schaller, etc etc., but there's a lot of play in them. replace the arm holder with an original schaller arm holder, and swap the block for a brass one.
then, as the parts wear out one by one, replace them with OFR parts!
