Can someone/s please explain to me what is going on....and why this fixes it. ok I have 7 basses...I know I cant stop! 2011 american deluxe jazz. warmoth active john east preamp nordstrand PJ config. passive warmoth with fralin 10% overwound jazz. warwick thumb CS active. parts bass passive. MIA jazz passive....and a sterling classic.all 4 string. now they all sound fine except the sterling classic E string sounds weak....it doesnt boom like all the other basses....all the other strings on the bass sound totally fine and the E sounds like a dead string. I changed strings same thing. I got a 6 band EQ in a trade and when I use the first 2 dials and cut it down under the flat setting then the bass sounds totally normal again and the E isnt weak at all. now why would I need to cut my signal on that bass and not any others? the amp EQ doesnt seem to cut it just adding the pedal before the preamp. Its also the same on both my amps I have a mbfusion and mesa400. 1 cab plugged in or 2 cabs does not matter. I just traded that pedal and now my sterling is useless until I get another EQ of some kind to cut! why do I need one and what should I get?
