Greetings all. New member. I have an Engelhardt ES-1 which I set up with light D'addario strings. The tone on the G string is quite nice, it has a good solid bass tone. The E, A and D, are lacking this bass tone, though. They are not thin sounding, but they are distinctly lacking in volume and deep bass compared to the G. But here is the strange part. If I lay the bass down on it's side, G side down, the bass becomes very strong on the E, A, D strings. Is this caused by the bass being close to a large surface (the floor) as in the way stereo speakers have increased bass response when placed near corners or walls? Or does it have something to do with the response of the bass body due to it's side being restricted in it's movement? Has anyone noticed this phenomena?
