dead spot on SBMM Ray35?
I have a problem with my Ray35 on 5th string.
The 5th string sounds uneven between 8-12th frets compare to the rest of frets.
Between those frets it sounds lot less low end compare to the rest.
Because of this I can't play phrases through 4-5th strings between those frets because it sounds too uneven.
What can be causing this unevenness?
Does anyone having a same kind of problem with ray35 or stingray5 or is this common with many bases?
I have GHS precision flats on it right now but I have similar results with SS or nickel strings.
And I've tried some different EQ settings on Ray35 and an amp but the problem didn't get solved completely.
I'd appreciate if you can share some thoughts.
On 1-5th frets, the 5th string is lot deeper sounding compare to the rest of the strings and I like that Boom!
On 8-12th frets, the 5th string is lot less lows and 1-4th strings are fat sounding and this unevenness is a problem.
Above 12th frets, 5th string is fat again and it sounds even with the rest of the strings and these are usable.
I like playing up and down using 1-5th strings at the same frets, not going up and down between the frets to play from low to high notes and phrases as much as possible.
Dead spots happen on any bolt-on neck, some are just more noticeable than others. Coincidentally I just ordered a SR5 last week, due to arrive later this week. Hope the neck on mine is a good one.
Do a search here for dead spots, you'll find advice on how to (possibly) mitigate them.
I noticed one thing though some section of frets with certain string, low frequency might be boosted instead of deleted. This might be why I'm getting extra boom on 5th string at lower frets which I love so much. Well, at lease I feel better thinking this way.
Yes I'll try to search little more to see if I can solve the problem.
