How does a Bass actually make it's sound. Without really being told this is what I kind of assumed just studying mine Bass. 1. when you pluck or arco the string it vibrates. 2. this vibrating string conducts the vibration to the bridge. 3. the bridge carries the vibration to the SOUND POST? 4. the soundpost carries the vibration to the instruments back 5. the vibration is then transferred to the entire bass hence making a tone sound which omits out of the sound holes. Now this is just conjecture on my part. I would like to be advised by folk on this forum as to what produces the sound of a bass. For the most part is is all mechanical isn't it? Please respond.
