It’s amazing how much my bass has changed in just one day. It was apparent as soon as I started to play today: the sound is much more open, and even throughout the registers. I also fiddled with the action, since it had risen overnight, so the bass is feeling pretty good now.
My bass is definitely brighter, though, maybe a bit too bright. We’ll see if it mellows out over time, I might have to change strings again if it doesn’t. But everything is really full and clear sounding, and the bass is louder than before, which is cool.
This is a pretty interesting process!
