I have gone through several low-end basses recently because they have all done the same strange thing ... when you put on big flatwounds or tapewounds, the B and C tones on the G string go weak and dead-sounding, and the D reverberates forever in an unpleasant fashion. One bass was an OLP, another was a Brownsville Jazz, one a Brownsville P-bass, and another is a Hamer MusicMan clone. All acted just like this. Filing the nuts helps some, but the distortion is still there. MY older Peavey basses from the 80's handle the same Fender tapewound strings fine, but a lot of newer basses do not. Anyone else seen this happen? I am beginning to think that the nuts are cheap and a better nut would stop this problem, but I'd like to hear from someone who saw it too and solved it somehow. Thanks.
