When I started practicing today with my Rigel A+ Deluxe mandolin, I noticed a buzzing on certain frets of the D and A strings:
- Open string - no buzz
- Frets 1-7 - buzz
- Frets 8+ - no buzz
I think this may have something to do with the weather. We live near Phoenix, Arizona, where it's usually hot and dry. But last night we had a long, soaking rainstorm, leaving us unusually humid today, and the temperature is about 30 degrees lower than yesterday's. Would this be enough to make the neck shift? And if it is, is there anything that I can do about it?
I'm visiting a new jam session on Monday, and right now my usually beautiful mandolin sounds like it has a cold (This makes me surprisingly sad. I kind of want to wrap it in a afghan and give it tea with honey.). Can I do anything on my own (and still make it to the jam session), or is it time for a trip to the shop (and a missed jam-session opportunity)?
