How you doing TB massive? Making a whamola (yes ive already searched and havent found my answer) and was contemplating what kind of string to use. It will need to stretch about an inch, will a double bass string handle this? (ive posted this in the BG section too) Or will I need steel cable, if so what do you recommend? And since i have no experience with acoustics (much to my dismay!!), how much is say a cheap E string? I just cant afford to go snapping heaps of strings to suss it out. Cheers.
