Wait - were you thinking that your problem could be due to the use of flourocarbon? Just to be on solid ground, D'Addario uses "Dynacore" basses (good 'ole nylon core) with their "carbon" set - flourocarbon trebles. So the 4th string (D) should be very similar to any other nylon core bass string with silver plated copper windings.kirolak wrote:Would anyone know why the D string sounds so brassy & ugly, both open & fretted, please?
I'm using D'Addario high tension fluorocarbon strings, & the others sing out beautifully, even the open g; but I dread having to play on the d string & do daft contortions to avoid it where possible
The previous batch of strings included a truly faulty d string which sounded like a knock on wood, but the retailer wouldn't exchange the strings, & they are expensive for me on my budget. With this batch the d sounds, but rather like an out of tune trumpet.
Not the same, I fear -mine trumpets hideously both open & frettedjoachim33 wrote:I had issues with my D-string when fretting. Open was fine - so not sure we have the same issue. Since I reduced finger pressure (I pressed to hard) the situation seems improved.
