On Monday I upgraded 2 of my strings: G and E to new D’addario Kaplan Amos. The E string works perfectly but the G string has this really weird problem.
When played in the open position the tuning is correct but all other positions are almost a 1/2 note flat on that G string. I compared with all other strings in the exact position but this is the only one which does that.
For example I tried playing the A note, on the G string but in the position I only get a G#. I tried the D string in the exact fingering position but its correct my e string works correct.
Would anyone know what to do?
Also in the picture, if you can see there are some whitish dings in the string (this is not rosin). Could that also cause this problem?
That’s someting I’ve never seen happen. I like changing all strings at once or else it all feels unbalanced or something to me. But of course that doesn’t sound like the problem…I guess what John said…must be something defective in the string itself. Hope you can get a new string.
