Ok, so I just got my bass worked on, and he lowered the action for me (the neck had started to bow inwards to much, and he took care of it). The problem is that now my G string is so low it is difficult to get a loud tone out of it. I suspect the first thing I need to do is work on my technique - get better at whacking that thing from the side (I play almost completely pizz). I am also wondering if new strings would help too. I was using the La Bella Deep Talkin' strings, but to experiment I put on an old Obligato G. Seems a little better, but I think the string is kind of dead. I went ahead and ordered a set of Spirocore Weichs since I have been looking for a change back from the tapewounds anyway. What's everyone's guess? Will this increase my G volume?
