    eggy in a bready good to see you have one of these.

    I feel like investigating the advantage of the scale (using the Kalium tension calculator).

    For a tight 39 lbs tension B on a 34" scale you would need a .136.
    For the same tension on 40" you only need a .114.
    You gain flexibility from a smaller gauge, however the extra length helps too.
    I will consider string flexibility to be roughly determined by the ratio of length to gauge.
    For a .114 on a 40" scale it is 40 / .114 = 351.
    This is equivalent flexibility to, on a 34" scale, 34 / 351 = .097 gauge, a light E string.
    A 40" scale gives you a tight B with the flexibility, and therefore clarity, harmonicity and tone quality, of a standard length light E.

    This is surprisingly effective, i had not expected such a good result.

    For some strange reason I'm tempted by this offer. It's radically different to what I've played before, or play now but....

    Apparently 4 of the 10 have sold, 2 weeks left for the price offer.
