String Ring

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Big Ce, Dec 30, 2005.


  1. Greetings Playas,

    I have a question, I just changed the Strings on my Yamaha TRB 1006 6'er, I changed out the stock strings for a set of Ken Smith's. These are nice strings, but now I get this annoying metalic nice from the strings that I am not playing, almost as if I play on string it seems that all of them are trying to ring out. :crying:

    I was wondering could this be me or does that come the type strings that I now have on the bass. I also play a MM Fender Jazz, I have changed strings on that bass several times with different sets of strings (current strung with DR Fat Beams) and I have not run into that problem.

    Is there a set of strings that I could go to get that clean sound that I have from the stock string that came with my 6'er? Any help would be great. :help:

    Looks like you need to work on your muting technique a bit.
