I bought a brand new set of Velvet Animas to use with my BSX Allegro, I love the sound of the strings, but the A string is making a buzz when playing it alone (I mean the A note alone in the A string, no left hand pressure applied to it), and I thought it was my bass making the buzzing, so I took my base to a luthier, he didn't find anything wrong with the bass, nothing inside could generate the buzzing (like the batteri comparment or cables been shaked by the A note frecuency) he widened the nut and the buzzing was still present, so we conclude that it might be the string that is deffect.
I complained to the store I bought the string set from, and we did a test: we changed the A Anima string for a Garbo, the noise was not present anymore, so the store agreed to replace the string, but they were empty for Animas, so in the meantime I am waiting for my A Anima string, I kept playing with the A Garbo I got from the store. Then my A Anima string arrives and I changed the Garbo with the Anima, boom the buzzing is present again!
So, my BSX Allegro is not making the noise, because the noise disappeared with the Garbo, the old A Anima that was making the noise/buzzing was not deffect at all, because the new A Anima string is making the noise/buzzing as well, so I really don't know what to do, because I like the Animas more than the Garbos, the garbos are too dark for my taste.
Does anyone out there experienced something similar with the Animas? will the buzz goes away after a certain period of time?
The first A Anima string was set like a month ago, the new A Anima string was set yesterday, maybe I should wait some weeks before replacing the A Anima string with another string?
I really need some advice on this one. so any help would be apreciated.
Thanks in advance.
