Post Full Baritone now a standard tuning option for 10-strings
Hi everyone,

Emmett has added one more tuning to the list of standard options for the Stick, Ten String Grand and Railboard - Full Baritone™.

The melody side is a 4th lower than 10-String Classic™ tuning (as with Baritone Melody™. The bass is raised a whole step (as with Raised Matched Reciprocal™). There is thus greater overlap between the string groups with slightly higher bass and chordal range in the left hand, and stronger, deeper melody in the right hand.

First introduced in the mid-1980's, Gene has been using this tuning so beautifully for many years. Check it out!

Amazing.

I also love the idea of rich timber. It's like rich mahogany, only more inclusive. ;)

This is my spirit tuning.

The way my hands feel resolved against the fretboard - the way the higher registers in the left hand line up against the right hand so easily, it feels natural. For the 10-string instrument, after 28 years of playing, it has been the most complete and fulfilling alignment of strings and gauges.

I moved to this tuning after seeing Emmett perform at Le Cafe in Sherman Oaks. It was inspiring.
And this...

Thanks Stick Enterprises.
