    Today I was watching some live videos of my band and noticed this very disturbing noise my bass would make everytime I hit a note, especially when sliding. As if I was playing acoustically and hitting the strings hard. Which I wasn't in the videos.
    Could the cause of this be my strings?
    I mean, I need to change them cause it's been about 3 months since I did it, but could it be that?
     
  2. Turn the trebel down on the EQ and be less scrapy when sliding.

    what do you mean by less scrapy?
    How else can you slide?
    I'll try cutting the treble.
    I do use a lot of treble.
    Thank you.
