Loctite might help. You pour a little bit on the thread (having undone it a bit 1st so that when you do the screw up again, the loctite is pulled into the thread) and is prevents things vibrating loose. People use it on cars and models a lot. Loctite Homepage Thread locking section It allows you to undo the thread if you need to though. You can feel that ...

First thing I'd do is swap round - takeout the offending screw , and any other one, and see what happens. If the screw is worn, it will behave the same in its new home. Replace it ! If the problem is still in the same place on the saddle, it will be the female at that point.Full solution - new bridge, Temporary solution - which may become permanent - use ...

Here is a possible problem... you say you have the bass ...with the action set as low as I can without buzzing. When slapping, the strings have to hit the fretboard. If they're right next to the fretboard, they just aren't able to get as much sound, just as if, for example, the beater on a kick drum pedal stood only a centimeter away from the head, you ...

Put a finger, your index,on the strings, just resting on all 4, not pressing onto the fret.Anywhere will do for now. Without moving that index finger,bring the other 3 onto the fingerboard, again without pressing onto the frets. Don't bounce them off again, but leave them touching.You'll need to get some isolation between index and other three, so that the ...

Any solution you choose is going to cost a significant amount of money, such as in buying a new instrument. There are many models and brands of pitch-shifter effects pedals and rack-mount multi-effects devices that can transpose everything you play down a half-step, whole-step or further, but they all sound artificial, especially if you are playing chords. ...

Have a look at this video: Apparently he installed 4 drop-tuners, I had never seen it before but it does provide a cool effect and a quick dropped tuning. It is not as versatile as a ...

There doesn't appear to be a bass version, but Hipshot make a "Trilogy" bridge that allows you to pick one of three tunings for each string individually. Alternatively, you could just use a capo - down-tune the guitar a whole step then use the capo to bring it back up.

Pitch shift pedals usually do not give a natural detuned sound. There are pedals dedicated for getting a natural detuned sound, like the Digitech Whammy DT or Morpheus DropTune. I haven't used one, so I can't back up their claims.

I hope this may sort of answer your question. Faced with the same sort of problem, on bass, a 5 string came to the rescue. It had a low B, thus could play a fourth lower than standard. It covered most of the lower notes that would be needed.A guy I work with sometimes uses an 8 string bass - this goes down to a low F# - nearly an octave lower than standard. ...

Tronical. You can buy one directly from the Tronical company to install on your existing guitar, or you can buy certain models of Epiphone and Gibson guitars with a Tronical tuner already installed. Gibson and Epiphone market them under the trade-name "Min-ETune".
