: 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.

The 3rd and 4th are the A and E, no?
I think it may be a simple soundpost adjustment.
Get a qualified luthier to do the job.
Otherwise, I'd try heavy gauge on these two strings. (the softer sounding ones)
