    1 - E4 - .032
    2 - B3 - .040
    3 - G3 -...

    It would depend on the materials for sure.

    I've found the wound C does take more finger pressure to fret than a nylon wound C, however you only really notice it because it's the only wound string...

    Basically, yes. A piccolo bass is tuned to the same register as the bottom four of an acoustic guitar. I'm guessing with the scale length of the instrument is 19"-20" to be inline with other bass...

    You're referring to the CU-BTR Bari-Tenor set. It uses the same smooth nylon strings as the CU-CCR set, as Craig fell in love with the feel of those.




    Thank you for that. In the grand scheme...

    At this point, no it's not. It doesn't have a ton of "squeak" at all, given the metal used. However, when put in context of three other nylon strings, that's usually exacerbated somewhat.
