Please bear in mind that I'm new to this before flaming me for doing something absurd- also that I live in Taiwan and advice on stuff lilke this isn't the easiest to get hold of. I changed my strings (flat wounds to high beams)a couple of days ago and the first thing that struck me was an absurd level of fret buzz when plucking a note (mainly on a and d strings and with less buzz the higher up the neck I play). With an open A or D the note was totally smothered by the buzz. Before I changed the set there was not fretbuzz. Well, as I only had a few hours before I had to play I figured that by raising the bridge height this would solve the solution. To a certain extent it did (except that now the action is considerably higher-). My question is do I need to do anything else? I'm NEW to this, don't entirely understand truss rods and am reluctant to mess around with it my myself. I would love to get that nice low action back (and the high beams) if possible. PS also if this helps the bass is standard four string stingray. many thanks, Tom.
