The sound of news strings

    I am trying out this new carved bass...... beatiful bass... but everything on it is brand new. It has a set of Obligotos (sp?) on it. So far i am fairly impressed with the dynamics i can achieve with the bass and the strings..... but there's a little bit of a tinny sound to the tone..... and i was wondering if it's because of the "new" strings..... or the aluminum adjusters on the bridge or what? This will be a big decision to buy this bass.... so i would like to make the right one with your help..

    Thank you

  2. New strings take a few weeks to fully settle in.
    The instrument may also need a minor soundpost adjustment to sound warmer.
