    I'm considering a change in string gauge, and possibly a whole not lower tuning on my Stick. The choices of strings are limited, and I haven't had much experience playing or listening to available options. But would welcome general opinions on what effect going to heavier gauge of the same type of strings would have on tone, sustain, harmonics of tapped strings. How about heavier gauge *and* tuning down a whole step - what additional affect, if any, would that have ?
