: How do you lower the action on an upright?

I have just set my bass up about6 months ago.
to lwwer the action on mine I removed the bridge & strings(watch the sound post placment
I taped a full sheet of medium gritt sandpaper to the bass
where the bridge goes. Took the bridge and sanded the feet by rubbing it
on the paper. This is to keep the arch on the feet correct
It worked great. it takes quite a while but it seemed worth it
good luck.
