Low E on Ibanez AEB10B Acoustic Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Dpburrill, Aug 23, 2012.

  1. Hi,

    I just purchased a used Ibanez AEB10B Acoustic Bass that I'm primarily going to use for unamplified practice at home. That being said, I notice that, when amplified, the low E is at least 1/2 the volume of the other strings.

    Has anyone else experienced this, and what have you done to rectify the imbalance?

    I have changed the strings and there is no improvement.

    Thanks so much in advance for your responses.

  2. Possibly the piezo strip under the saddle needs re-bedded.

  3. Thanks, G.

    That was one of my thoughts, also.

    My choice of strings might also have something to do with it, even though I experienced the same problem with the stock strings. I put a set of D'addario flat wound Chromes light gauge strings on it but there may be a better choice. This is my first acoustic bass guitar as I mainly use an upright along with my slab electrics.

    I was hoping that others might chime in with some ideas.

    Thanks again for your reply
