I just switched my string brand and now my open B string has a buzz sound when a play it. It did not do this with the other brand, any suggestions?

I started with light-everything was good, switched to medium for some drop tunings-everything good, switched back to light-buzz on b string. all the other strings are great

How long have you had it on? The neck might need time to adjust back.

The comments above are pertinent. If you changed the strings without regard to the gauge, then a couple things can happen.

One possibility is that the nut slots may be cut for heavier strings, which might cause the string to vibrate in the slot...this could be the case if you went to a lighter gauge.

Similarly, with a lighter gauge, your guitar's neck might relax a bit, giving it less relief (upward curvature), bringing the strings marginally closer to the board and frets and allowing the string to touch a high fret somewhere when plucked.

Try to listen to the buzz and find out if it comes from the nut, the bridge or somewhere along the board.

i tried to pinpoint the buzz and it sounds like it's coming from the bridge of the guitar
