Hi, I'm new here in the forum and I apologize in advance my english - I'm not a native speaker/writer ... anyway ... I have a question for those playing a Yamaha TRB 5PII but maybe someone expierienced a similar issue on other basses. I recently purchased one of these fine basses and here's my question. Did someone noticed a difference in tone and sustain between the e string and A, D, G ? A, D, G are really fine ... full tone and very good sustain. But the e string ... when played open it's okay but when I play e.g. a G or G# on the e string the first thing I hear is a short more or less dull tone and a split of a second later the tone tries to develop sustain and full tone - sorry I can't describe it better. Also I'm hearing a silent noise when playing those notes (and open string), similar to a truss rod rattle but it comes primarly from the bridge. When pressing with a finger hardly on the saddle of the e string this noise disappears. I'm wondering If someone can give me advice how to fix that ... Thanks a lot ... Thomas p.s. : I Use Pyramid Strings 040-126 on this bass and all I'm talking about is noticible when just hearing the unplugged instrument - no amp involved.
