7-string Low-B thickness... - ...or thinness?
I've only played a 7-string once in my life, but I have a few comments to make. *
1) In general, I love it, and the switch wasn't too hard. *I had no trouble reaching the B, but when I wanted to hit the E, I hit the B. *lol
2) People always talk about how the 7th string adds thickness to everything, but I found it made the E sound too wussy and not as heavy as on my 6-string. *Is it just me?
3) Everyone talks about how heavy the 7-string sounds, but I find that most peoples' 7-string tone is very trebly, where as I have a very heavy fat 6-string sound. *I'd love to be able to spend more time messing around on a 7-string just to see how heavy I could get it. *Anyone tried a seven with the bass and treble cranked and the mid about half way up?
