      I want to try a thicker G that matches well with the other strings that I have and solves the "nasal problem".
      Can you tell me the diameter of the Efrano Stark G?
      Thanks!

      Hello,
      I've read an old post about strings where you said that you bought an Efrano Stark G.
      Now I'm endorsing Gamut lyon G medium (2.10mm), Gamut pistoy D light (2.80mm) with Eudoxa A&E. I'm happy with the overall sound, but I always have noticed that the G sounds a little bit nasal at some scale points and it's more audible when I slap.
