Why intonation is important

While this video is strangley beautiful and is a bit arty/majestic at the same time I think it highlights why intonation and saddle height is important with regards to bass and guitar.

As the strings vibrate you can see how easy it is for your frets to get in the way of the strings and the strings to distort their vibrations thus producing the wrong note. Especially if the saddles aren't high enough.

Fret buzzing is cringe worthy and albeit rather amateur so make sure you sort your intonation our today!

Now your strings are sorted have you thought about the Best Bass rig of 2012?
