Hey there bass forum. Recently my bass has had that clanky noise when i play and I was wondering if I can do something with my EQ to fix it. I do NOT want the clanky sound. If there is nothing I can do because it's because of my bass (Traben Phoenix 5-string) then I guess that's ok. I would like my sound to be like the bass in this

In case this matters it's mainly on my B and E strings.

Try raising your action or hitting the strings softer. The clank your talking about is most likely the sound of the string hitting the frets.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

if youre looking for an eq fix, try cutting your trebble

I dont think it will be necessary to raise your action unless your strings are buzzing uncontrollably. This sounds like a technique issue, try plucking with a light touch. Try plucking at different positions, you'll find you get less clack by playing closer to the bridge.

Yea i raised the action a tiny but which helped a little then i noticed that my trebble was very high (why i normally don't let my friends mess with my amp ). Anyway I got it sorted out now
