Floyd Rose Frustration

Is there any way to stop the other strings from going out of tune when one string is bent up a step. I understand that with a floating trem this is normal but I am curious if there is a way around it.

ANSWER

Hi, Brendan--

After doing much research, I have to conclude that at this point in time, this situation "goes with the territory". The state of things seems to be that you can have a Floyd Rose Tremolo or you can have strings that stay relatively in tune, but you can't have both.

Hopefully there will soon be some technological advance that will help with this dilemma.

Best Wishes,
Lynne
