  1. I have, the current strings are about a week old, before that I had done nickel wound strings on and it did the same thing. Ive just updated the original post. I tried a different guitar and had the same problem initially. With the second guitar turning the tone up got more noise out of the string but the jazz didn’t change much even with tone up max
  2. Hey All Update : so I think it’s either the eq on the amp and/or the bass itself. I dug my old thunderbird out and initially had the same issue. with that one turning the tone right up helped bring the sound out more. However the jazz didn’t work with the same treatment original post: ive got a fender jazz bass with a quiet open A string problem. When played acoustically or with an mxr thump pedal it’s fine, all sounds equal. However when just going into the amp going from a fretted note to an open the sound drops noticeably. one thing that might/might not be related is the four middle magnets on the pickups are elevated, idk why it was done by its previous owner and I haven’t got round to getting it sorted. it could be how the settings on my amp are. I haven’t played around much to find my tone yet so if there’s any eq suggestions I’m open to them any thoughts on what’s causing it?
  3. You’ve hit the nail on the head. So I tried to get some comfort as RB suggested but couldn’t find any the local shop, seems locals prefer persil! I saw I post on another forum about using baking powder. first I tried leaving it on a tray in the case closed. It got the smell out in the general area but not overall. So I changed tactics and sprinkled a couple boxes directly onto the lining, then left the case open with it on for a day. it’s taken three rounds with the Hoover to get the bits out but the smells totally gone 😅
  4. Yea I didn’t think of that until the other day, just assumed the coat on the bass would stop any discolouration . But I bought a Hercules stand for the bass and was reading the disclaimer about how the rubber padding was designed to reduce discolouration but there was still a chance 😯
  5. Thanks 🙂 I’m going to have a go at Mrs RB’s suggestion. If you like I’ll let you know how it goes so you could have a go if you’re not in a rush to replace?
  6. Thanks that’s great help! I’ve got a lint roller and I’ll grab some comfort later on 🙂 Yea you gotta be careful with you put on different fabrics. I used to be a bit more just trial and error but I fence in my spare time and my coaches lost their mind when I told them I’d used Vanish on my kit to get marks out. Apparently that sort of fabric is really sensitive to it and starts to degrade 😅
  7. Hey All Recently managed to get hold of my dream bass (MiM fenderJazz) and the guy I bought it off threw in a nice hard case with this felt/faux fur lining. The lining smells really musty, to the point the guitar and strap come out smelling musty after a couple hours in it. no shade to the seller it’s in great condition, just musty. ive had it airing out for a couple weeks but hasn’t done anything for it, so I want to clean it up and get it smelling a bit fresher. Any advice on what to use to get the smell out and not damage the lining?
  8. Belated welcome to the forum 🙂
