Ok, im sure this has been covered a few times, but i cant seem to wrap my brain around it for my application as its not QUITE covered, so hopefully, you guys with experience here can point me in the right direction. Also note, im planning on going with Kalium strings so i can pick and choose the right gauge for each string. This is what i need help with. Picking the right gauges to maintain string tension. I understand i will have to do some nut modifications, but id like to leave the bridge alone. The bass: Bill Dickens Conklin 7 string - 35" Scale The tuning: CGCGCGC The hurdle: I want that bottom C an octave lower (almost) than the typical Low B string down there. Basically i want to ditch the 1 lower 2 higher config, and go 2 lower and one higher. Do you think this can be achieved with any useable range? If not, i will do GCGCGCG with the bottom G being one octave lower than the 3rf fret E string. HALP!
