Hey everybody, I recently got myself a 4 string jazz bass, and since I mostly play in drop B, I immediately put it in that tuning with a 5 string set without the highest string. What I noticed, however, was that the lowest string (which was a .125) was sustainless and lifeless. I blamed it on it being a dead string and replaced it with a new one. This one sounded dead too unfortunately. Does anyone have the same problem with thicker strings on your bass? It isn't the electronics or the body, because a normal 4 string set is sustaining just fine. The string itself just doesn't sustain for a long time.
