I've recently acquired a Megatar and I am thoroughly enjoying learning this new instrument.
However, I am struggling with a few design issues and was wondering if Chapman Sticks are more in line with my needs.
I am also looking for a Megatar forum but none seem to exist.
Here are some of my problems.
As a guitar player, I have been tapping for many years. I prefer jumbo frets and heavier strings for the tone and feel.
The Megatar has VERY thin frets and the scale length seems to prohibit heavier gauge strings.
Is there a stick with a shorter scale length that is easier to play in terms of stretching and is there a model with really big frets that can take at a minimum .11s on the guitar side?
Here is a link to my video, I would love to hear your thoughts:Paul LaPlaca Videos
