    Hey there,

    I'm new to double bass and I'm loving it. I have been an electric bass for 8 years. So it's different to me but I am liking it.

    I do have an issue. I have played it a few times and today I took out my bass and there was this buzzing sound coming from the bottom. Any note I play at any dynamic level does this.

    What do you think the issue is? Let me know if you know anything

    You need to get the bass to a repair person (a good one!) It is an open seam or a crack. These little buzzes can drive a performer crazy, so get the bass fixed. And if you live in a dry climate, be sure to keep the bass humidified a bit - somehow. I keep my bass in a trunk and have a moist towel hanging in the trunk.
    Best!

    lw, if you'd fill out your profile and post this question in the Setup and Repair forum someone might be able to recommend a reputable luthier near you.
