    What is this rite sound?

    I must have it, all this time I have been getting the right sound, but this rite sound sounds interesting.


    Take your time next time, spell everything out fully and correctly and it will be much easier on the people trying to help you.

    There are online guides to seting up your bass, I believe Gary Willis' website has a pretty intensive one. That is an alternative to paying for a setup.

    CAUTION: Tweaking the trussrod isn't for amateurs. Make sure you know what you are doing before trying that.

    Jeez, just a few tips. Lose the caps lock, and stop typing like a 7 year old.


    I would bring your bass to a pro... I wouldnt even trust you setting up your own bass at the moment.
     
  9. If I were you, I'd just spend the 30 quid. I'd also invest in a new keyboard, preferably one that didn't have CAPS LOCK permanantly stuck in the on position. A keyboard with better punctuation might help as well, since you seem to have none available to you besides a sporadically working comma. Seriouly, I don't believe that people who can hardly communicate with their fellow humans should be attempting delicate tasks such as setting up instruments for proper sound.
