Ok I have searched and came up with different opinions.....does the E string sound dead on these or is it a defective string? I had these sitting in my drawer for 6 months now put them on. never had a problem on this bass...but it almost sounds like I have a mute in my bridge and like the E string is ringing wrong? not as much sparkle or sustain as the other strings. sounds dead....I havent sent it back because I kinda like it.....the only thing that bothers me is it does not sustain as well as the other strings. and this bass sustains great! Is this a bad string or are they all like this?
