2 vs 3 Tremolo Springs

The debate between two and three tremolo springs has been around for as long as the tremolo bridge has been in use.

The main argument in favor of three springs is that they provide greater stability for the bridge, resulting in better tuning stability and less chance of the bridge going out of adjustment.

However, some players feel that three springs can make the bridge feel too stiff and that two springs are sufficient for most purposes.

In it all, it is up to the player to decide whether two or three springs are best for their needs.
