Custom string set advice needed

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by trb6pJM2, Sep 19, 2008.

  1. So I am in a power metal band and am looking for a much heavier gauge of string for the heavy sound I'm looking for, think John Myung on Awake. So I emailed SIT strings and they said the thickest string they could make was .135, which I find odd, because they make a jauqo's C# which is a .195 soooo :confused: . with that limitation the string set is I'm thinking going to go a little like this.

    High C: .40
    G: .55
    D: .75
    A: 100
    E: 115 (maybe 120)
    Lo A: 135 (I really want a 145 but as I said, they said they couldn't be made.... which im still confused about.)

    I am currently playing a Yamaha TRB6p, which has an ebony board so I don't think cracking will be a problem. What do you think about these measurements?
