Hi all, I'm still having trouble understanding this issue. Is "bottoming out" a string during setup a good thing or not? Here's the deal: once your action is adjusted the way you want it, you can tweak the angle of the saddle. At some point, you'll find a particular angle that causes the string to "bottom out". What that means is, it'll achieve a "deep resonance", it kind of sounds like some of the high end goes away, and the sound becomes deep instead of bright. This happens on every string type I've tried (Smiths, D'Addarios, LaBellas, DR's, etc). The practical effect that I've noticed, is that the string tends to "vibrate more". It's almost like the amplitude of the vibration increases. That's why I'm thinking along the lines of a "resonance", although I'm not entirely sure about that. Sometimes this may cause some nut buzzing, but there's usually a string height that will mitigate that effect. The key piece relates to the "consistency" of the sound across the strings. If you just do an ordinary setup, without tweaking the saddle angles, chances are good that some strings will be bottomed, and some won't. Basically that means each string will sound "a little different", some will be brighter than others. What do y'all do about this? Anything? Do y'all typically adjust the saddle angles during setup, or not? And if so, do you "bottom out" the strings, or not?
