KORN setup? KORN sound? still trying
Hi, I have an RG7620. I am looking for the KORN sound.
I initially started off with 10-56 strings, and it seemed pretty good for B tuning, but obviously wasn't going to good for one step down.
So I put Dean Markely, 10-60, and I find its less loose (as you would expect), but I am still unhappy about the tone I am getting.
It seems as though the low A string is unstable. it seems that the pitch is not stable (esp. on open fret)
I have noticed after reading tons of posts on this section of the forum that people are using as thick at 70 guage for their B string.
I would like to try going thicker, but I am also concerrned about bending/damaging my neck (because of too much tension)
I have noticed that my RG270 has a crack in the neck, which I presume could be because of the setup/tension I put it under with a set of fat strings - but maintained in stanard tuning.
has anyone successful got their guitar sounding good in ADGCFAD tuning?
I have read somewhere on this site that their is a Dean Markley korn string set (10-60) , which, if the case, is the same set I have on mine. (Although mine was made from a 6 string set, using an extra 60)
even if I don't get "the KORN sound", I still want a good fat A tuning sound, which I am not getting. I am suspecting that 60 is not thick enough for an A
