I recently started learning bass and a friend lent me his Fender Squier Bronco Shortscale bass. I've been finding it easy enough to play - I'm quite small so it feels like a good enough size (I don't think I'd go any bigger). However, I struggle to press down hard enough to get a clean sound. I've been wanting to get my own bass, but with that in mind, I'm not sure what to get. Would getting a smaller size (for example, I found one that is 27") mean I could press down easier or is that just a matter of me toughening up/practicing? Would I be compromising the sound if I got something that small? Sorry if I sound completely uneducated - I have no clue what I'm doing but I'd really like to learn. Thanks!
