I tune my F# strings straight up, same as my E and B strings. I like the sound of the 2nd degree in E, and the 6th degree in A, when tuned this way. At 441.

Since Str 7 drops 7-8 cents in the BC F ...

If you use the D string to play D chords, having to hold that lever in may be tiring, or just fine. One other solution is to lower Str 9 D on your lever with the Str 8 E lower. That way they lower tog ...

Yes.
When he says “out of tune” he means that C is dissonant to the the A7. He bends it up to C#.
Any video of Kayton you can see him bending the string behind the bar with his third finger. ...

Paul recommends "tuning compensators" to lower strings 1 and 7 very slightly when the A pedal, or B pedal, are touched.
This allows the F#s and C#(A pedal) to be beatless.
