I guess I can switch back and forth with the same string gauges? Why is A6 better for Western Swing specifically?

It looks like you wanted to add more pictures, which I don't want to see, because I don't want to buy it. But I sort of want to see them anyway.

Hey All

I finally got my 8 string strung up with Jules Ah See C13 (maybe there needs to be an abreviation for that).

I haven't been practicing it nearly as much as thinking about it (not very ef ...

Make sure you check out the Kayton Roberts video at the end of the other thread above "Chris Scruggs tuning", he's bending the open C to meet the C# of the A7 chord and it sounds really cool

oh that's cool. I never thought of the C being the blue 3rd of the A7 chord before. That was great.

I'm not super qualified to answer this here but the C# gives a tritone with the E in the open position. That tritone gives you access to dominant 7th chords without slanting (and you can get the ful ...

I bet Dupont Vespel would make an awesome nut (the stuff they make Blue Chip picks out of) but it would be pricey.

Interesting Bill. Do you think there's much of a sound difference between a metal and a delrin nut? To my mind it's unlikely, possibly only with the open strings, but there doesn't seem to be many s ...

Hey all

Anyone ever use a roller nut for behind the bar bends? I've been pondering one because the strings intermittently go out of tune. I've tried graphite.

Rob that's a particularly helpful post, I hadn't really thought of tunings in that way. Thanks.

Can you get a decent 9th tuning from retuning c6 (I'm using Jules Ah See 8 string now)?

wow that's pretty big on the bottom. The .060 does seem a bit floppy thus far.

I was more wondering about the unwound top gauges?
