Bad G string on new Mouse 30?

    Hi all,

    Trying to diagnose an issue before contacting Rob Allen. The G string on my new Mouse sounds very different from the rest. It's louder, buzzier, and fuzzier, if that makes sense, than the rest. It's also feels rough in places, which is not something I've ever encountered with a tape wound string.

    How would I be able to tell if the string is bad? I've also sent Jason at BSO an email, but I thought I'd ask the collective here as well. I'm just hoping it's not an issue with the bass itself, because otherwise it is absolutely stunning and I would hate to have to send it back to Rob for adjustment/repair when I've only had it for a week or two.

    It was a bad string and Rob hooked me up. What a phenomenal bass.
