Yes. I suppose you have a point, however, Batten's version (at least the one I have seen) is more "tapping" and it appears she is using some kind of modified "keytar" to me. Not that it isn't  a  very talented effort , but it does not seem to be the same thing from what I could gather. At least to my over-simplified ears!  I like the "blender" analogy!  Very clever! This guy does get to the point where it is rather difficult to hear the notes but I think it is a remarkable example of musical dexterity, if nothing else.

That may look good when they print the new Guiness book, but seriously, it is no more musical than listening to a blender.

Yes, that is "Flight", but I would rather listen to Jennifer Batten's version every day,three times a day, than hear the world record version again.....

A truly incredible performance, indeed. I believe the song is called "Flight of the Bumblebee", is it not? Spectacular. Although I would take you anytime over that guy, MM!

WORLD RECORD!!!  Get past all of the announcers mess and....GOOD GOD....I dont think I will ever play again!!!

I`m guessing this is the first time for such a heavy gauge?
You`ll get used to them very quickly. great for  lower tunings ,keep us informed on how you use them.

I have only played one of the Schecters, but I have no idea what model it was. They are gorgeous pieces, and very affordable as well. I didn't take the time to plug it in, but it felt really good.

How you making out in Buffalo, MM? Getting pretty nasty here in Rottenchester....

I played one at a guitar center here in Buffalo and it was smooth as silk and it was a beautiful instrument with the inlays and the flame maple top...

Probably the 52,42,32 set?
Those will cause the rise on the bridge for sure. The Floyd type just seems to be happiest with 9 to 42`s.
Is the shop still going to put the same gauge on ?

Got my eye on this little girl here.........

Yeah thats another thing about floating trems.  If you change guage of string then prepare to spend a good chunk of time getting the trem set back up correctly.  I run nothing but lights or 9 guage and try to stay with the same size for each string. That way the tweeking is minimal when you change it out.  

The best way to avoid having problems with a floating trem is to NOT HAVE ONE!!! lol.  I am shit canning this friggin floyd rosed ibanez when all of this recording I am doing now is complete.  I've been playing for 30 years and had trems for 27 of those and am sick to death of dealing with them.  Good luck.....

Very true,I didn`t think bout the gauge. I once tried some 10`s instead of my usual 9`s and the tremelo came up quite abit. Instead of having it adjusted,i just went back to my 9`s and all was good again. There is enough adjustment that you could go up to a really large E,maybe to a 60 or so. But you would probably have to tune it way down to help alleviate the increased tension in the larger gauge. but I`m no Luthier. 
So what gauge were you trying to install?

thanks for the advice just to clarify things i didnt take all of the strings off i just took the bass strings(EAD) off. Anyway i ended up taking it to my local music store/repair shop and i get it back on thursday. They said it was probably because the gauge of the strings i was putting on were higher than the ones that were previously on there.

guitardude is right..Dont ever pull all of the strings off a floyd rose!! Do each at a time.  Floating tremolos are a major pain in the ass.  The old Kahlers seemed a bit better and easier to deal with but the floyd rose system, in which the entire unit itself moves, is much more difficult.  Do them one at a time and you will keep all of your hair......

You have opened the proverbial can of worms, JD. It takes a little practice and patience with a Floyd type trem, and you may find any one of these helpful....

JD
 You have touched the most Un-holy grail of problems with floating bridges. The Floyd type bridges are a royal pain in the ass.
Ideally,the bridge should set level when the guitar is in tune. This may not be your personal preference though. It takes an hour or so to get a floater into tune properly. The bridge will move around as you put tension on each string. 
It really is a balancing act (literally). It takes practice and patience.  The one way to avoid the entire hassle is to change one string at a time and not remove all the old strings all at once. This still isn`t a fix,just makes it a little simpler.  
I wouldn`t adjust the springs in back unless you want the bridge to stay back some. And dear god,don`t over tighten those bolts on the bridge when re-installing your strings.

i need advise!!!! I was changing the strings on my jackson rr3 for the first time having never changed strings on a floyd in my whole life and i have the bass strings in but when i go to tune them the bridge starts to come up. I read somewhere you have to tighten the screws where the springs are to make the bridge go down but that doesnt seem to work. im taking it in to a shop tomorrow but im just so worried about it!
