Is there any site that explains the differences that different tension springs will bring to your trem? For instance, it's obvious that using weaker springs means you have to use more of them, and screw the claw in further, but does that make the trem less stiff, or more since you have to use more springs and therefor move more metal? What about fluttering? More springs with less tension = better, or less springs with more tension?
I meant better flutter, which is very measurable and quantifiable
I love the smooth trem action of having 9's, and the flutters are crazy, but the tension is nowhere near acceptable for decent picking for me.
Also, I've heard it's not just a matter of tension. Apparently, once a spring is already sprung (say that 5 times fast) ie, stretched, it's a lot easier to move it. So you have to wonder if you take 2 very high tension springs, how it will flutter vs 4 weak springs. Would a stretched spring warble more and give you more flutter, and be easier to dive since it's already stretched? Or would the weaker springs?
