Help with unwanted reverb from the bass

    I'm getting some unwanted reverb from my bass. The resonant frequency seems to be around Bb, and there's also a lingering E overtone when I play an A. Here's a clip (and I did mute all of the strings after playing each note):

    I still love the sound of my bass, but I haven't heard a lot of this on other basses I've played. Any ideas?
  2. A wolf note maybe?

    Maybe it's the afterlength that is bothering you. Try damping the afterlength to see if that improves matters (see So uh.. Dampening? for suggestions).
