strat trem spring tension

Recommended Posts


i have a knock off cheap chinese strat trem taht i want to use for dive bombing type stuff. i have locking tuners and a graphite nut (which i hope wont require lub). i have heard that you can adjust the strength of hte springs to making the trem a little easier to use. not tighten the springs by turning screws. i want the trem flat not floating. but turning the screws to tighten the springs makes the trem difficult to use. not like a floyd which feels really light to use. does the fitting of the springs matter, some are straight some diagonal, some have three springs some four, some two?

this worked for me... but I think where you are going to likely see issue is the nut... in addition to trem setup the nut has to be cut right and they rarely are.
