please help.. okay, lets get to the point.

4 days ago i was practicing my slap and pop and i broke my d-string.

up to now i havent replaced my d-string. but i still use it to practice but the thing is..

since my d-string broke all of my strings vibrates on the 1st - 4th fret and it sucks especially the 1st fret it seems that it does not sound properly if i play it on the 1st fret all i hear is buzzing.

please help thanks. and btw. later i change my strings all ready.
I got 99 problems and they all bitches

Replace your d-string asap, your bridge is loose as it has less tension i presume... If it's still buzzing, seek medical attention

It's kind of like being black in Alabama. Don't do it.

I misread the first question so I've edited.
It sounds as if you've fitted a lower gauge string which will give less tension therfore not pulling the neck far enough back in.

should be clear, that the missing string caused the buzzing. so replace it and everything will be alright again

would be my guess to... get a whole new set of strings, or a D that is the same gauge as the previous...

My neighbour bought his son a Mark Hoppus bass for Christmas, the set-up on it was terrible (the neck had so much bow they should have supplid arrows with it).

i change all the string to the same gauge but the d and g strings still vibrates so much on the 1st fret and i am still disapointed.

hmm... I'd say take it to a shop... Or the trussrod needs some adjustments (but I don't think that since it's on the 1st fret only) Or the nut slots are carved in to deep by the strings...
Take it to a shop and ask them...
