Setting up a bass for slap.

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Cochise, Mar 2, 2005.


  1. I've been playing fingerstyle for a while, and I am now going to get a "teach yourself slap "DVD. I have a Fender P bass and a Warwick Corvette 5 active. I guess it'll be the 'vette I use, but it's set up for fingerstyle at the moment. Is it just a case of lowering the bridge to get the string height down, or does this alter the intonnation (sp?) or require any other adjustments to the bass? Thanks in advance for taking the trouble to reply

    it may do a hair to the intonation, and thats about it.

    Other adjustments may require truss rod, but I doubt it, depends on how the relief is now.
