how to set up my gibson to sound bassy???

Posted by Gibsonboy_101 on Sunday, October 11, 2009

See I took it all apart couple of weeks ago and cleaned it, put it back together..I can't get it adusted right, and I'm no professional at setting up..I can play the heck outta one but I can't set it up for the sound I want..I  got frustrated and cranked the head down to tight, popped it. so got a new head, needed noe anyways because of all the signature! I want to get that bassy sound like Dave evans, I like that bluesy sound.. I know it's not a prewar but  It had a bass sound to it before, it's a 07' RB-250 pre-war re-issure, sounds awesome, I know to set the toneation right but the tailpiece I need some help  with..the only music store around here don't know a thang about a banjer, and I'M IN EASTERN,KY.!!! ANYONE please give me some advice here,  how to set the tailpiece up, and everything else about how to get that bassy sound!


thanks all,

If I can help please let me know. It is difficult to try to describe certain things via words only, but you are welcome to call on a Sunday and I can try to walk you through some of the more important setup highlights. Cell minutes are free on the weekends. :)

Besides ... I grew up in Phelps, Ky. I just noticed that you were in Pike County.
