i recently bought a used bass and when i played it i got alot of fret buzz on the E string. especially on he 1st fret and after the 12th. Does this mean i need new strings or should i take it into a music store to get it fixed??
New strings won't fix it, you'll need to have a tech look at it. Sounds like you have a fret which needs to be filed down and a general setup, which is recommended when you get a bass that's new or new to you.
