Thread subject: STATII.COM: For all things Status-Graphite :: Poor Low B sound on Empathy Headless 5

Posted by me4bass on 03-10-2020 00:53

Try different strings, even if not double-ball. Lighter gauge perhaps (though I don't tune down)? I run Dean Markley 128-40 on my mid-90s Empathy 5. Plays and sounds fabulously. The B string has a lot of windings hanging on the core of the string. If it isn't tight, it will sound dead. Have fun jammin'
