Cluin Instruments: what strings to use (6) RE: Tech: what strings to use 30 Jan 11


Experiment.
If the scale length is shorter, like a mandola/mandolin tune it in 5ths. Consider unison strings.
If longer, tune it in 3rds.
To figure out string gauges, Google an online string guage calculator.
Google string suppliers to find the source for them.
