Bad vibrations...

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by duplo republic, Aug 28, 2005.

  1. Hi I'm new to talkbass,

    I've been playing my Ibanez GSR 200 for six years now and I’ve recently noticed a buzzing sound where strings are vibrating unintentionally. I think this may be related to the string tension. I'm currently using Ernie ball 100-45, I’ve heard that heavier strings increase string tension but is there anything else I can do stop this problem? Or is this a case of flawed technique? Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
