I’ve started getting some fret buzz on my SR500E after tuning it to D standard. It’s only on a couple of frets (G 8th, C 1st, F 1st), but it’s noticeable and consistent. It goes away and everything returns to normal after tuning back to E standard.
I assume the issue is that the .045-.105 strings are too floppy for D standard. Can I expect this to go away with .050-.110 strings? Or would I have to raise the action either way?
I have this a bit when I tune down to Eb-Ab-Db-Gb on my ESP Bello bass too.
I raise up the action a bit to get over it for recording.
I might actually set the bass up in that tuning to begin with and only go up when I want it for regular tuning instead.
Ya I am thinking I will.
EbAbDbGb is essentially all the KISS songs (they claim its how they got their sound), and I do like to play them a lot and that bass suits. I just have to go reset it up in that tuning and do some tweaking is all.
