2 Problems...

1. I pulled out my 370/6 to check the neck adjustments and tuning and noticed that the #1 string sounds like a sitar when played unplugged. You do not notice it when amplified. Nut or saddle problem, I'm guessing. Strings are RIC std. spec. Suggestions?

2. Several of my 660/12 machine heads will not hold the string in tune. Current strings are Tetrahedrons and have the appropriate number of windings around the posts. I don't remember having this problem with the Rick strings that came on it. When you tune to pitch you can actually hear the string going flat as it rings. I think I read somewhere that these tuners are prone to slippage. Are the Tetrahedrons exacerbating the tuners problem? What can be done to correct this? I do not want to modify the guitar for different tuners.

Thanks in advance for the help.
