I recently tried six or seven new carved basses from a local shop in my area, all from the same maker (they are Chinese made, with fingerboard work and bridges and setup by the local shop, which has a very good reputation in the string world). In nearly every respect, these are very nice basses, but all of them had very warbly wolf tones on the A string in thumb position, particularly the octave A itself, from around A up to C or C sharp. The A note played on the D string (not in thumb position) also was a tad warbly but not that bad. The shop guy told me they may be able to reduce it a bit through soundpost adjustments, but he seemed to feel this was pretty normal. My own bass (a much cheaper bass) also has the warbly wolf tone in the same area. I'm trying to decide whether to buy this bass (I took one home for a week or so to try it out) or not. Any thoughts on this? There must be some basses out there that don't have this problem. Thanks in advance.
