alright, since i've played guitar i've always used regular guage nickle wound strings because i like the sound and pretty much cuz they are in the middle but i'm noticing more that whenever i use the tremolo bar the string go out of tune and sound like hell. if i want to get rid of that do i need to go with a higher/lower guage or change the brand? i don't know

P.S. right now i'm using D'addario's but before i had Ernie Ball's and i had the same problem with both brands so any suggestions

What kind of guitar is it?

A lot of guitars with a standard tremolo bridge do not have locking tuners or anything, so when you drastically change the pitch, they can slip or stretch a little bit, causing it to go out of tune. Meaning it's not the strings, it's the guitar.

'07 Roadhouse Strat
Washburn WD-21 all Koa Acoustic
Marshall JCM-2000 TSL-122

Sorry holmes, that just comes with the territory unless you got a locking nut or locking tuners.

tremolo bridges go out of tune easily. but i'd recommend bigger strings.

Yeah, it's not the strings, it's that you don't have a Floyd Rose system.

prestretching and your string winding techniques is the best way to reduce that problem.
