I have a dead note on the 6th fret of my E string but nowhere else on the bass

The strings arent freshly new but the string isnt rusted or bent to the shape of that fret

So whats the problem guys?

It might be a loose fret, try first tuning the string down a bit(about half a step) if the dead note changes location then it isn't a loose fret and might be due to the resonant frequency of the bass. Nevertheless have a qualified technician take a look at it.

Sadly, most basses (and guitars) have a dead spot or two on the neck. But that does not mean that the note will not sound; rather, it means that the tonal characteristics of the note at the dead spot are nowhere near as good as those of the rest of the notes.

If you are getting a "thud" or a "clink" on this particular spot, then it probably is not a dead spot. Have your neck checked to make sure that it is not warped, and that your truss rod is properly adjusted. A one-quarter turn of the truss rod nut in the propoer direction can often make a world of difference.
