    Default New sink, with a new drain line, smells musty

    I just finished a remodel on the kitchen, new Kohler cast iron double bowl sink with Kohler baskets, new trap, new ABS line in the wall.
    There is a strange 'musty' (best way I can describe it) smell coming from the drain now where there wasn't in the old sink/drain line.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Do you have a sink trap? Because if you do not, it would smell musty.

    Of course I have a trap.
    I was born at night but it wasn't last night.

    The smell seems to have gone away as I have used the sink more.
    It was more of a 'aqua' smell rather than a musty one.
