well im kinda new to the forums. but i have a problem. when i play on my A and D strings i get a real buzzy sound like when im playing on the 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th fret almost like when i hold the note down the strings touch the other fret metals? Does anyone know what i can do. ive tried to down tune it and stretch the string out but it didnt work.
Try raising the action, if you dont know how to do this, take you bass to someone who does.
alright thanx alot
raise the action but the problem could be with the neck
Same, I'd get the frets looked at too. What kind of bass do you have? And by the way, downtuning won't help with stretching the strings out, as it puts slack in the string.. think about it.
