I was not sure where to put this, as it could either be a setup issue or a technique issue, but I put it here. I just got a Fretless Bongo and boy does it sound great. I have one issue with it though. If I don't 'fret' the 'D' and 'G' strings with my finger tips I get kinda a buzzy, thin sound. Unfortunately my usual style is more with the pads of my fingers. I understand that playing fretless can need a technique change, but this seems to need a little more compensation than I would like. The Bongo is setup with Sadowsky flats and seems to have a nice setup. It is clear though that I cannot fret the D and G strings the same way I do with the E and A strings and still get a nice full sound. It seems like the basic issue is that I need to make sure the strings have solid contct with the board so eliminate the thinness. It seems like I am needing to put more pressure on the string to get that solid contact. My question is, Is this mainly a technique issue or does my setup need a little adjusting? For instance like lowering the action a little bit. Thanks for the help.
