I changed my strings. Now the saddle won't reach the proper note.

CAUTION: Please note, if the hex key becomes hard to turn STOP TURNING IT, the tuners may have reached the end of their range. If this happens, please contact us at We will respond promptly.

When going from a higher to a lower string gauge, tune the strings to about a half step sharp of the desired note with the tuning pegs at the headstock.

Then decrease the saddle tension with the hex key in the tuning hole behind the saddle until each string is in tune.

This will avoid breaking strings by trying to get saddles into Zone 2 when the tension is set too high for the smaller string gauge.

Do Not Force the Tuning Screw

Spring Noise

In almost all cases, what you think is spring noise is actually something else.

If you encounter what you believe is spring noise coming from the bridge, be sure to mute the strings behind the nut with some foam, a clean cloth or a fretwrap and in almost all cases the noise should be gone entirely with the guitar being 100% silent.

The EverTune comes with a built in damper and buffer system that will prevent any vibrations or sound energy from bleeding into the springs as well as custom dampening grease on all moving parts to guarantee 100% silent operation. We highly advise against stuffing any foam into the bridge as you risk wiping away the dampening grease which can cause mechanical noises to develop.

If you still encounter any other noises be sure to check for loose screws or parts, such as all screws on the EverTune bridge, the screws and height adjustment springs on the pickups and screws at the electronics cavity and input jack. If your issue still can't be resolved be sure to contact our customer service.
