Even sounding 5 string
Hey everyone! This may belong in the tone section but I figured id ask here. I'm playing an ESP/Ltd b-205sm and I'm having some trouble getting the low B to sound even with the rest of the strings. It's just way too deep. I play one of the new Acoustic b200's. Can anyone offer any suggestions? I really can't utilize the low b because of this issue and I'm debatin selling it. But if I can resolve this issue I may want to stick with it. Thank you
Check your pickup height on the low B side.
You may need a setup, new nut.
Try a new set of strings, that a balanced.
Yeah, a good B string is all about setup.
Also a 3 or 4 band preamp works well with a 5 because you can boost mids. Mids bring out the harmonics on the low B.
That doesn't make any sense to me. If you don't like the pitch of the "B" string, then you shouldn't be playing a five-string... :eyebrow:
if a 5-stringer does not have a natural balanced response there's very few to do.
changing pup-height or string-type may help a little but when the output decreases up to -1db (a third of perceptible volume) and even more it won't help.
i worked on a ibanez "fieldy korn", a quite solid built axe but no way to get this weak point off; -db is -db and there ain't no trick to get it off.
i own an old warwick streamer 5 and beside steinbergers and music mans none brought out the low b in that manner (ok, i missed to test the upper range like alembic or fodera).
i tested them strings from .115- .135 gauge but the result didnt' differ much: +0.2-0.4 db was the max to get...
