So I use a Boss Chromatic Tuner, the TU-2. When I tune my Guitar with it, it goes to whatever note it's at right away. But when I tune my Bass, it always starts high then drops a little bit. Is it my Bass or is that just how Bass is... Or is it my strings since I've been using the same ones since I bought my bass cuz I'm too poor to get new strings, haha. Thanks.
If your strings aren't holding pitch then it's time to replace them.
Well, guess that's what I gotta do then. Any word on Ernie Ball Flatwounds? Or am I gonna have to fork out more for some RS or D'addario?
Bass is not my forte, I'm afraid, but any of the major brands should be fine. What type of string will depend on the kind of music you play or personal preference.
even if you change the string the bass will keep doing that, this is due to the length and thickness or the bass strings, they vibrate a lot more than guitar strings, that's why you get first a high pitch and the after the vibration has settled, you get the actual pitch
Hear ya there, new to Bass myself. Thankfully there's UG.
