Last week i read dozens of pages, here in Talkbass, about Sadowsky strings. I discovered that a bassist friend of mine has been using Sadowsky Blue Label strings since several months .... He had an unopened set of SS Blue Labels and he gave it to me. And other than that, he loaned me one of his handmade basses which has a broken in SS Blues set. Now, both the low B strings in his bass, and the one in my own bass (where i have mounted the set he gave me, tonight), in my opinion sounds o bit "hollow" in comparison with the other strings in the set. And they seem to have a strange overtone series. They tend to play worse when i dig it more aggressively. I believe you understood what i mean: that sort of "clang", where (expecially in the first frets) the note is less discernible (because of slightly out of tune harmonics). And, as said, i hear this both with my combo (Markbass: it is performing well), and with earphones (Akg 141 monitor). Both live and recorded to pc. And with both basses (both have 34" scale). My question is: anyone noticed something similar ? As far as i found here, only Groberts in the thread about differences between blacks and blues seemed to mention some "hollowness" in the B string ........ Is this something that goes away after a period of time, after the strings broke in? Other question: this friend of mine tried Blue nickels too... and said that in this opinion the nickel B dies quickly than the steel B. Again: anyone experienced it? This because my tastes are more towards nickel....... Thanks, greetings.
