Lo Pro Tremolo problem

I have this ringing buzzy sound coming from the trem occasionally while playing. If it happens, and I slap the bar, it'll go away for a bit, but it comes and goes, it's very annoying. It has 2 little white clip things on it, taking them off, or just one, makes no difference. How do I fix this problem? Thanks!

Sounds like spring resonance to me. Take back plate off, fill the cavity with foam, or tissue paper or something, and put the cover back on.

Re: Lo Pro Tremolo problem

Look for other things like your keys and even your strap screws for being loose. I had a similiar buzz on the treble side and it was driving me crazy, turned out to be the strap screw but sounded like it was coming from the bridge.
