Was explicitly listening for this at practice last night since it was just me and the drummer for the first hour. E sounds as present as the other strings (I'm in normal tuning). And these strings are a little dead after a couple super sweaty shows the other week, and I usually notice the E going dead quicker on my other basses.

It did indeed. A combination of 125 gauge low E, some fussing with the nut/saddle/bridge and adjusting the pickup height on one side eventually sorted things. Basically, everything people suggested all at once. Now my only issue is whether to respray the thing or not.

I've never managed to make a low C# ever sound particularly great...always a bit 'meh' compared to the other strings. I've just learned to live with it now.

Yeah, I know what you mean, but you can usually get it sounding fairly decent in comparison to the rest. This sounded absolutely awful before fixing. Even standard tuning sounded pretty dull and weak.
