... or are there advantages to high action? I just handed over my bass to a colleague to take to a shop in Italy, because she knows a guy who is supposed to be one of the best bass techs in Piacenza. I wrote the guy a little note saying that I wanted a full setup done, and that I like the action low. I'm a newish player, though, and it occured to me that I've been asking for low action more or less because most people in this forum seem to see low action on a bass as desirable. I've noted that some players, though, seem to prefer higher action. What are the advantages/disadvantages of high/low action? Thanks!
