    Ive just fitted my pbass with a new set of rotosound swingbass strings. All tuned up (except for some bloody reason the D snapped oh joy :rollno: happened to a mate with same strings actually)

    well the A string for somereason is giving of a horrid buzz and its not on the frets. It shows up most when i use a pick. Is VERY noticeable.

    Urgent help please
