Greetings everyone. I'm a beginning player using Roy Vogt's Teach Me Bass Guitar. I have just been lucky enough to obtain a Sterling MM Ray34 in blue sparkle and out of the box, it feels great, however, a couple of things that I have noticed are: 1 - the E and A strings are MUCH louder than the D and G strings 2 - The G string sounds like it belongs on a different instrument. You can barely hear it and it has a cheap sound to it. The notes just don't sound clear and crisp like the other strings do. I have an Ampeg 25 and have tried turning the knobs every which way on both that and the guitar and I just cannot get that string to sound in any way bass-y. It's so offputting to be going through the lessons and have notes on that string just sound so incredibly out of place. Is there something that can be done? Different string maybe? I'm reticent to start making adjustments since I really don't know what I am doing and while You Tube videos are nice, I don't want to mess with something unfamiliar and damage the instrument in any way. I do have another set of strings here that are the same gauge as the ones on the guitar. Should I swap the G and see if it makes a difference? If I take this in for a setup somewhere will that help me with this issue? Thanks for any tips.
