Bridge rattle problem.

On my 7 string, the saddles for the low B and E strings seem to be rattling, or not stopping the string vibration enough and the strings are rattling the ferrules, which stops as soon as I put pressure on the string after the bridge.

Short of buying a new bridge, what can I do to stop this from happening? (It's really annoying, and it comes through the pickups)

you're sayin that the bridge itself rattles?

wedge a little foam or sponge under something.

other than that, take it all apart, see if the ferrule needs to be secured better.
