I've been trying my hand at tapping for a while, and have written a few things in that regard. I work at Sam Ash, and I noticed today that there was one bass that was ridiculously easy to tap on - it felt like I didn't even have to touch the strings to make a note. I went home, and decided to experiment a bit. I've setup basses before, but mostly by guides online. This time I decided to take a look at the actual engineering of the instrument and see what I could come up with to reduce string tension. After sketching out some ideas, I finally decided to lower the saddles on each string until just before the third-highest-fret started to buzz. My plan was to then give the neck more relief if I noticed excessive buzzing as I headed towards the nut. After doing so (and adjusting the intonation on each string), the strings feel... ridiculous to play. I feel like blowing on them would produce a pitch. And I didn't need to give the neck any relief; there's very minimal to no buzzing when playing at reasonable dynamics. I really can't think of a downside to this setup. I mean, yes - if I were to *really* dig in, I'd probably get some buzz... but I now have a dynamic range from ridiculously soft touches to a pretty normal playing-style. So considering that and considering the ease of playing (and especially tapping), would there be any downsides that I'm overlooking to such a low-action setup?
