Thread Name: Twelve-String Guitars
Subject: RE: TWELVE-STRING GUITARS
Anybody done any experimentation with high density tungsten strings?
A fiddle player I know has a five string fiddle with HDT for the low C string, because he can get the low pitch (like a viola) using a much thinner (and shorter) string than would be possible with conventional strings.
I don't know if such strings are readily available for guitarists, though I believe some people use them on bouzoukis, which would suggest they may be...
Just a thought...
