Fret Wear??

    Im wondering if my frets are wearing or not. I doubt that could be the case considering that the bass is not even a year old but mabye the type of strings Im using (D'Addario XL) is possibly the cause. The frets all have small scratches on them (more so toward the headstock) and discoloration where the string sits on the fret.

    Also, one more question. I play very... aggressively, meaning I hit the strings hard with my fingers and it seems to cause a sort of clicking noise. It also happens when hammering on to the E and A string. I just want to know if this is going to be noticable through the amp to others. I dont play through an amp unless practicing with the band. Thanks for all the help.

    This is really a setup forum kind of question. You'll get more helpful advice up there, so I'll move this thread there for you.............
