View Full Version : Can I Use Medium Tension Pahoehoe Strings in an Ashbory?

I know all the stores seem to spec low tension (18"-21") Pahoehoe strings for the Ashbory, but I wonder if I can also use the Medium tension 20"-24" hohos on and Ashbory?

I haven't specifically tried it myself, but I don't see why not.
I currently have a used set of Thunderguts on my Ashbory, they do fine.

Pahoeoes are so stretchy, I can't imagine the tension difference being an issue.
Intonation accuracy wouldn't be a problem since it's fretless.

Thanks for the reply UU VIP. I was only considering them because Sam Ash carries the regular tension Pahoehoes, but not the low tension. I went ahead and ordered the low tension ones from RoadToad. Took awhile to get the G string on, but all is well now.
