Hey gang - long time, no post... My bass doesn't seem to like gut D strings, and I'm wondering what the answer is. About a year ago, I went from Evah Pirazzi weichs to a mixed set of Anima E and A and Gamut Lyon medium D and G. The D string just never settled in. It was dead and didn't have a good pitch center. A few weeks ago, I finally had enough and bit the bullet to try a Pistoy light. Initially, it seemed like things were going to be great - after just two days, it already sounded better than the Lyon. But... it didn't continue to get any better than that. It's been almost two weeks now, and it really hasn't changed much. The intonation has stabilized, so I think it's pretty much all stretched out now. But it's still very quiet, fuzzy sounding, and fairly dead. I thought it was possible that my Lyon medium was just a dud, but the chances of getting another dud seem slim. I never really had any problems with the D string when I was using Evah Pirazzis. So... Is this possibly a sound post issue? Is there another thing that could be done to the bass? Should I just consider another string? If so, what would work well with the other three I've got? I absolutely love the other three strings, so I don't really want to give up on this type of setup. I'm just sick of having a dead sounding D string.
