I am trying to fix a problem on my bass. The 3rd and 4th strings sounds softer than the 1st and 2nd, I tried to adjust the action but if I get so high the problem is still there (and hurts) ..... and if I get so low I get "buzz" and makes no changes.
I am using D'Addario orchestral medium tension for bowing and pizz.
Question 1: Could resolve the problem if i use diferent strings tension for 3rd and 4th?
Question 2: What tension should I try (Light/Heavy)?
The sound and level of 1st and 2nd is so good and I am trying to get an even level of sound.
Help !!!
Thanks, and a much better year 2002 to everyone.
