tell us your string-gauge, tuning and scale

in an attempt to avoid several posts about this subject maybe this thread could be a nice source of info when dabbling with new tunings and such

7-string 25.5 scale

tuned in A-standard
.010
.013
.017
.030
.042
.052
.068

this works really good for me, but then again, i'm a light top, heavy bottom kinda guy

Re: tell us your string-gauge, tuning and scale

7 string, I'm in Bb

25.5" scale and I'm using a 10-74 set.

Going to try the cobalt 10-62, but I'm loving the 74 set
