This happens usually when I put on new strings. I get these weird overtones. Like a cymbal This time it is on the E string only. I can sometimes get rid of it by loosening the affected string all the way and turning the ball in the bridge clockwise. This time it did not work. Some basses are more prone to this than others. I had a Warwick that sounded so crisp and clear all the time. Same with the Spector I have now. Other basses, FBass, Musicman, and my Dingwall have had this problem. It makes me mental! Any Ideas?? Thanks.

If so you need to re-orient the string by recrimping at the saddle.
