    Ok..when i hit my e string (open) the low e note comes out as well as a much higher sound (the way i can describe it is those steel poles on the street or on the soccer goals, the sound is similar to if you were to hit the pole with your hand..its like a puhhnnnn sound)

    im using ernie ball strings, 100 gauge. on a sx spj 62.

    is it like a ting sound? or a slap? i just changed my strings for the first time, using ernie ball super slinky and that's the sound my strings make. no fret buzz, just a constant slap sound. i think ernie ball just makes that type of string. or it could be that their just new? i guess it depends on how long you've had them to really tell.
