Hello! I plan on going to university to study Music in September with double bass as my second instrument, and am looking to buy my own bass. I spoke to a luthier and for my standard of playing, he suggested buying a good quality student bass and set it up to my specification for university, rather than buying a very nice antique one which I could risk damaging. One of the suggest set-ups was to lower the action of the strings, by altering the bridge and the nut at the top of the fingerboard, to try and avoid blistering my fingers as bad. However, will these cause problems with bowing and classical playing?
