    Ok.. am buying a 27" eight stirng guitar. My tuneing is EAEADGBE. So am not sure how much tension would a 80 bass string be at E. If this thread is the wrong place. Please move it. Then send me a message about were to put things in.

    If you know what the tension is at 34" :)rolleyes: probably 23.575 lbs) take that number ÷ scale[SUP]2[/SUP] × new scale[SUP]2[/SUP]
    In this case 23.575 ÷ 1156 (34[SUP]2[/SUP]) × 729 (27[SUP]2[/SUP]) = 14.86693339

    or

    This tension chart http://circlekstrings.com/CKSIMAGES/CircleKtensionChart130105.pdf read the bottom of page 3 first ;)

    You'll want a .086 and .061 to go under a standard set depending on tension preference.

    There are guitar strings this gauge . . . . .

    If the hole the string threads through is .15" or smaller a guitar string will hold - barely, but it will hold.

    "Port" means "string ferrule". Just cut the ball end off a bass string and stick your guitar string through it. Then through the ferrule... port.
