I hope you guys can help me out with this one. A while ago I posted (in the 'basses' section) about my problem with my bass (Yamaha BBG5S), where there is a 'double' tone in the E string, and in the low B only in the higher positions. Now I was hoping this is a string problem. As I broke the D today I'd say I shoul replace them all. I bought the bass used (a week and a half ago), so I have no idea what strings these are (brand or type). All I know is the winding starts at about half an inch PAST the saddles. I was told this isn't unusual, but could it be that this type of strings just doesn't work for this bass? I want to be sure the strings aren't the problem, so I want a good set, but at the same time I can't afford the most expensive strings. I was thinking the cheap Warwicks, but I have no idea what quality to expect from those. I don't want them to sound too bright either. Can you give me some advice on what strings to get? I still hope the tone problem is the strings, as it'd be failry easy to solve. I'd hate it if it's the bass itself. I'd feel a bit ripped off then. Any information would be great! Thanks!
