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

    string gauge
    string type
    bass scale
    pickup configuration
    pickup brand

    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...
