I've always used ernie ball skinny top heavy bottom strings on my highway one strat, but have recently decided to put regular slinky's on.

So I love the regular's but now I got more fret buzz on my low e and a strings. I thought I would have less buzz because the strings are lighter?

So is there a simple trick to this as in just raising each saddle a bit or am I gonna have to fool around with the saddles to get rid of the buzz...or is there something else I should know about?!!?

Please help!

You'll have to adjust the action, etc.

If its a strat it has a tremolo, and if it has a tremolo you need to increase your spring tension.

As you went from high bottom (high tension) to regular which has less tension so your bridge might have an angle right now causing your action to lower.

tighten the springs?? hmm I thought I had to loosen them.

Ok so I tried that now what if I just take the strings off for a couple of days and then try putting the new ones on? will that make any difference with the tension, buzzing or anything.
