I've been enjoying most everything about my Essex 5er, except the B string has no tone. The other strings are nice and lively. But the B? It sounds like a cardboard string. Its not the stock D'Addario (roundwound) string. I changed to D'Addario Chromes. I'm a flats kinda guy. And I like the tone of he Chromes--except the B. I chose the Chromes because I read that fatter Bs have better tension. This is an .032. The stock D'Addario round was an .025 or .028 or something. In fact, I had to drill out the hole in the bridge to get the Chrome B to feed through it. So is there anything I can do to make that B sound like the other strings? Is it the Chrome? Different strings? Do I need to raise the pups? I hope not. I can make the B hit the neck pup if I dig moderately hard, and that don't sound good when it hits. And, like I said, all the other strings are lively. The action is good. I worked it over pretty good. Any suggestions?
