For a year now, I own an AEB8E-BK Ibanez acoustic bass, and decided to change the old strings (they first came with the bass, as i bought it). I bought a Thomastik AB344 set of strings... The sound is what i really like, except one big problem. The E string buzzes, (not on the fret...), on the hole length regardless the note i play. The sound seems to come from the string itself or from the body of the instrument. I cannot be sure. I checked everything, inside and outside the bass, with no luck. Checked the neck if it was not straight, e.t.c. Nothing... I used back my old E string, and no buzz at all.. The sound i hear is recorded in the file I uploaded
. You can hear the buzz sound from E, and no buzz from A,D,G strings.
