    Hi guys,
    Did anybody notice that string "A" sounded different?
    I put TI jazz flats on my Modulus VJ4 and I got such a deemed sound! It's very noticeable especially on the open "A". Could it be a deffective set?

    Thanks

    What do you mean by "deemed?" The A is actually the best sounding string on my TI jazz flat equipped bass. But the bass has some serious resonance/acoustic issues :rolleyes: . The E is twangy and weak. :mad:

    The "A" string got less sustain and sounds too much woody,very close to what we call the dead string. I know that TI have not been disigned for slapping but G,D and E responded OK, except "A" which sounded like a laundry rope.
