In the first 4 seconds of your clip, is that a low D that I´m hearing??
It sounds fantastic!
Guess I´m gonna order the hannabach low C string for sure!
Yes, low D. Purposely choose that piece for it. Not just 1st 4 seconds, but till the end.
Do note that the C string will not sit tightly into the original groove at the nut due to its larger diameter. But the groove is good enough to support it firmly in place with a tiny gap underneath, and it don't bother much when playing. So didn't alter the nut for it, which leave the reversible option there.
Same like ukulele, the tuning is rather sensitive. Especially for the metal wound strings, they can be quite jumpy to about +/-5c off. For me, the guitalele serve well for beating, touring, convenient, portable, for fun, memorizing a piece, quick for jamming in small space, or quick check when doing arrangement. Right tool for the right job. So precise pitch, sustain, tone qualities are all not important to me.
Advise to all who don't own a guitalele, please don't expect it to sound like a normal guitar and start to complain if otherwise. For those who have this cute fellow will definitely understand what I mean. (Just to manage some expectations here.)
