| | Need to deaden strings
I read all the forum postings and could not find my
subject exactly. So I am posting a new thread. Apologies to all if I missed the info somewhere else.
I recently had a 'gig' at around 12 noon. I didn't have
a chance to change my strings the night before as I
normally do. So I changed them about 830am in the
When I got to the gig...my setting usually are the same
most of the time...with a little tweak to fine tune the
crowd, and location, etc.
This day was not a normal one. On our first tune, I
found my 'tone' very biting, edgy, w/hissing highs, and no bottom (bass). So...I had to pump up my bass
setting and cut down on my high and mid highs. I've
never had that happen before.
I have a Lakland JO 5 string...great guitar BTW.
So it's my first set of Lakland 5 string SS set.
I usually love the sound of brand new strings...but have recently spent a lot of time, slapping and popping.
This day..I truly wished that I could at least till the end
of the gig....have my strings that I just took off.
Never had this happen before....How can I deaden
my strings? Or...any suggestions or comments welcomed.
I love 'TALKBASS.COM'......it rocks! and so do all of you!
