Subject: RE: How heavy are your strings?
8mm - 46mm elixir poly on a hand made Brook Tamar from Devon, England and tune it 3 semi- tones up to F#
The sound has been described as 'like a harp' and 'bells' when capoed to the 7th fret and playing ing with a dropped 6th string to what would on standard be D.
The sound is also achieved and enhanced with Fred kelly Speed pick and nikel silver finger picks.
These are essential pieces of equipment if you are performing to an audience and wishto bring out the true tonal quality of your instrument for the listener's pleasure.
Cant keep me hands off her.
