    The Stick website has around 10-15 types of tunings. You can take your pick.:-)

    I think the lowest sensible note would be a C# at 11 hz or so...thats the frequency for one of the 9 string basses I saw.
    The higher notes wouldn't be a problem of course.

    EDIT: Has anyone else noted how serious, knowledgable discussion has all but died out on the Gear Talk board? And then people complain that IGT is dead.
    The fact suddenly hit me with some force when I saw the Standard Xth level replies to the thread.
    I agree. Gear Discussion is meant to discuss gears - but there is random cr@p like "what is an electric guitar" or "how do I know the difference between my mouth and my @ss"...I hope the mods do a better job - but some of the mod posts are also simialr....
