hey folks, I've had a DeArmond Pilot for a while, and the B string, while decent enough, has never really been up to the quality of the rest of the instrument. For a Korean-made instrument that I paid $300 for off of ebay, it is a GREAT bass, with fantastic string spacing and neck profile, but the B has never really had a great sound. It feels fine; it's tight, due to the 35" scale and solid construction. I recently changed the low B from the D'Addario XL 5 .130 to a Ken Smith .145, and that did help somewhat, but my Kingston 5's B string is still thunderous in comparison. I'm wondering if the cheap active electronics might be to blame. Anyone else have any experience with one of these basses?
