    I bought a nice starter bass about a month ago and recently bought a nice amp to go with it. But as i have been playing i notice that i get a clunking noise, especially when i slap. Ive tried different settings on the amp, different pickups, using my fingers, picks etc. but i usually get that same clunk. Im pretty sure that the action is way too low, but i wanted to make sure because i bought it from a salesman who is fairly knowledgeable about bass. Im hoping that he wouldnt let me go off with a new bass, waiting for me to come back to him for some repairs.
  2. Get with an experienced bass player and show him; that way he can tell you by observing. Good luck!
