It's on! Changed my Cambria order from parallel strings to mirrored strings, based on the fine advice from you fine, fine people (Greg and Rob especially!) Just ordered two sets of bass-side strings tuned in 4ths starting with D. That's either an extra set for the Rosewood, or a set for the Railboar...

The cat-trap is still going strong. It's literally the best cat toy ever--that requires no effort on my part, anyway. Good old string (yarn) still works great. Geo got tired of the laser pointer a while ago. A Stick string apparently is better than a yarn string, which he eats and gets caught in his...

I've been playing around with mirrored and parallel fourths tunings and I had a few strings that I was changing out lying around. My Sound Engineer, Geo the Cat, found one string on the carpeted floor of the studio and wouldn't stop chasing it around, noisily and gustily. If I shut him out of the ba...

Wow! That was awesome! I'm a secret Monkees fan (well, not so secret, now!) and that song looked fun and not terribly intimidating to get the two voices working together. Great tune and very well done--you can rock some Monkees anytime! 8-)

The 12-string mirrored 4ths set has a low E not a low D, so you would need to order a custom set. Did you just want to get the bass set right now? Oh, that's right--Rob mentioned his tuning started at E. Yes, I'd like just the bass side but starting at the D. I like the range and the separation bet...

Just an update here so I can listen to myself talk :) I've learned not to get too optimistic after many setbacks but over the last week I've managed to string together more comfortable days in a row than I have in almost a year. I started to play piano again about a week ago and have put in a coupl...

I have my Rail-board in Mirrored 4ths too, and y'know, I like it a lot that way. Just the way my mind works... That's awesome to hear the mirrored fourths is now working for you, Scott! And Kevin C rules! Did you just take an extra pack of mirrored 4ths for the Grand and throw away two strings for ...

Mirrored Fourths (on a 10-String) So I was chatting with Kris about mirror 4ths. And reading what Doc and Rob have done here. And since Cambria hasn't gotten back to me yet on the pricing of a set of parallel 4th strings in a set of 10, I thought I'd experiment a bit non-destructively. Kris mention...
