Action too low. Not sure of solution.

I have a RG1570 setup for 9's with low action. The action however is too low. Would changing the setup to 10's in any way help this? I was thinking more tension would be less vibration and less buzzing. Or am I simply going to want the action raised on my 9's?

And yes, the setup I had done is very good, the truss rod and neck are adjusted well enough.

Re: Action too low. Not sure of solution.

Is the problem your action preference, or buzzing? If you just don't like the action that low, then you'll need to raise is.

Yeah, problem is buzzing. I enjoy action as low as possible.

Facts, man, facts. Where is the buzzing? What strings, what frets? How much relief does the neck have and what is the string height at the 1st, 12th & 24th frets? No matter how "very good" the setup is, numbers don't lie and that info will help diagnose whether it's the nut height, neck relief, bridge height or frets that is/are the problem.
