    Hello,

    I was just wondering about the string height that most players have. I just got a new Peavey Cirrus 5, and I love it, but the strings seem to buzz a little up above the 12th fret, especially when I am tapping.


    I'm new to the bass, and since this is my first one, I thought I'd ask. I don't hear fret buzz when Victor or Stu does it!! LOL



    Thanks in advance!
     
  2. yeah...I need to put mine down a bit,like when I am playing Sugar(SOAD)

    E-0-7-6-5-0-7-6-5-0

    when I hit the 7,It makes like this small buzz sound when I press down to the fret...I need to lower 'em


    :oops:

    What is a good "normal" string height at the 12th or 24th fret? Mine seem to be pretty low, which I like. Also..if I do raise the strings up a little, will I have to readjust the intonation?

    Thanks again,
