O.k. so about 2 weeks ago I got a new pair of DR's. Now when I restring my bass, I always try to get as many wraps around the tunning peg as possible, as your supposed to. So I went along getting a good 3 wraps with the new E string, and then I moved to the A. Now I'm pretty good at gauging how much you should cut a string I've never cut it to short. Now with the A string this was the exact opposite. I don't think I cut it enough, I had almost five wraps around the peg. Which made me smile at first. So I went to play it and so forth, and started popping and slapping and all that good stuff. But every time I slapped an open A, a weird sound that I can only describe as a "ssssssssssssss" sound would follow as the note wrang out( dont make fun of me I was just doing my best to describe the sound ). Anyway so after checking my relief, and messing around with the bridge saddles to no avail. I got fed up. So I left it for a few days thinking maybe it would work itself out. Nope. Then I started thinking maybe its the way the string was sitting, so I took off the A string, cut a bit more on and threw an restrung it. The nasty noise went away! So my question being it is possible to have too many warps around? I mean I had it pretty much wrapped around the whole tunning peg. I just want some input.
