Ok I got a cheap Strat knock off and I've been trying to make it scream, but when I do it is a very suttle and there is little tone difference. I was wondering if the tension or strenth of my Tremolo Springs affects this or if is just my 3 watt amp. Please also include tips for making it more... hear-able (sorry for poor grammer lol)

Because it doesn't have the proper tremolo.
If you wanna scream, you're gonna need a Floyd Rose or something similar.

Set the bridge pickup - raise the gain, pinch all over the pickup area to find the one place that really lets it scream.

Harmonics are all about position and technique.

This is it......Try dumping your whammy (pushing it down a bit), hit a natural harmonic then slowly release the bar.....sounds cool on my friend's since I've no tremolo....

try setting up the trem so it floats, it still won't be as extreme as a Floyd Rose, but it will help.

more bad advice.................... just turn up the gain and practice your pick harmonic's......if your trem only pushes down..........pick a harmonic and bend the string while pushing down on the trem. while holding the bend pull back on the trem. takes some practice but you will get it. if you have a floating trem pick a harmonic and pull.................scream away.

it also helps if you have the EQ set where the treble is all the way up.
