    I bought some GHS Boomers and the B string has a noticeably muddier tone than the rest of the strings. Is this natural?

    Details:

    string gauge
    string type
    bass
    bass scale
    pickup configuration
    pickup brand
    amp
    cabinet

    But the short answer to your question is YES depending on the details.

    wow. I didn't check on the specs, but when I compared the E on the B string to open E string, the E on the B string was very muddy compared to open E, as well as the other notes. I was just wondering if anybody else has had this experience...
