Hi well i dont really think this thread belongs here, but anyway I'll be talking about my bass so here it goes. Today i was listening to My Own Summer (Deftones) when i realised I needed to play a little more on drop D tuning, so I D-tuned my fourth string and started playing Creed's Thorn and everything was alright, then i started playing My Own Summer and realized that when I press the strings against the fretboard i get a metal-against-metal sound (plz dont tell me that the strings are metallic and the frets too, Im not that idiot). Someone tollme once that I neede to play lighter but once i got the light touch the sound was still there I have a MIM Jazz V, BEADG sometimes tuned BDADG (i dont use the low b on this tuning) with warwicks black label 45-135. I set the bass with the lowest action posible and intonated it and nothing. I use my practice amp a lot its a berihger bx1200 100w aluminium cone. I only use my fingers to play. So my questions are how can I avoid the fret presing "click"? Why when i hear any studio recorded track i cant hear the fret presing not even in the fast solos played in the low b string?. IS it a problem with my EQ, do i need a limiter/enchancer boss pedal? or a 7 band EQ boss pedal? Does anyone out there has the same prob under same conditions (or similar)? I do really need help.
