    Does anyone know if a Low B and a High C black nylon exists for a 3/4?

    I know Labella makes a 5 string set with a high C but no low B.

    Any information is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just tune the low C to B. Just a half step. It'll be slightly Less tension than normal but I assume it'll be fine.

    I have a feeling what you say is true. After all this isn't rocket science.....

    I guess I just have to try this one out.

    So you understand, tune your low E to Eb. Thats the tension difference
