Re: Hybrid Slinky 9-46. Which gauge for 7th?
Cheers for the responses guys. Thinking of tuning the 7th string to A. From what i have worked out that means that the 7th will be a 0.70" string to match the tension of the E.
This sounds fine, but in practice it feels awkward having such a large string at the top in comparison to the size of the E.
Is there any disadvantage to having such a thick string tuned to A?
If i was to buy a baritone 27" scale guitar for instance, and tune a 0.62" (only an example) to A to create the same tension, would they sound different? Obviously same tension on two different guitars, same note. But strings physically a different thickness. I hope this question makes sense but i really want to find out the answer to this !!!
