i have a fender strat with the tremsetter installed.

the guitar used to have a hybrid set of strings. 10s on the lows 9's on the highs, but i recently changed them to all 10's

the bridge went down a little, so i adjusted the screws to bring the bridge back to being level with the body.

everything seemed ok until i hit the Low E string, and bent a note. the low e string dropped in pitch. i read it is not supposed to do this with the tremsetter.

after some reading, i found out you have to turn the 2 thumb wheels on the tremsetter toward each other. so tighten it. i did that, but the pitches still drop when i bend.

will i have to completely readjust the tremsetter? as in loosening the 2 set screws a little bit to drop the bridge down, then loosening the small allen wrench screw on the tremsetter itself, putting a heavy gauge pick in between point B, then tightenng the allen wrench screw, etc

Did you stretch your strings after you put them on?

it has nothing to do with stretching the strings. the guitar stays in tune, the reason the low e drops in pitch is because when you bend a string on a floating trem, it pulls the bridge down.

i would add more springs, but the person who owned the guitar before me, took out the spring holding part and replaced it with the 2 that come with the tremsetter. so there can only be 2 springs plus the tremsetter itself.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
