Bass Guitar Relief And Action?

Recommended Posts

I suppose the correct answer is "whatever feels comfortable" or "as low as is practical without excessive fret noise", but I'm curious - how low do you bass playing folks set your action? What do you look for in ways of relief? I'm wrapping up my bass build, and I feel like I should be able to get the action lower, but I really don't play bass enough to know what's normal. I find it interesting how an imperceptible change in string height can make a big difference in fret noise. Basically I can set this instrument at what feels and sounds good, but I'm wondering how well dialed in I actually am.
