48 for C# from a 9 string? O_O
Oh, I assumed it was standard octave
Perhaps something like this then?
c1# .105 danw == 17.21#
a1 .064 danw == 18.03#
e2 .046 danw == 20.63#
a2 .032 danw == 18.61#
d3 .024 danw == 18.61#
g3b .018 danw == 16.91#
Assuming you then meant the 10-52 in E standard on 25.5, but I wouldn't suggest trying to go that tight on the bottom of a 27.7 in C# as it would need something like a 120 which is just going to be super muddy. So I've gone with a more typical 'middle heavy' set here that tapers off the tension more like a 46 E than 52 at the bottom for some brightness.
The Ernie Ball 9 string set skipping the 80 is a nice solution for you that gets you extremely close to this suggestion but with a 16 plain on top (which is a good alternative to an 18 wound, if you aren't opposed to having a single plain string on the guitar which I never enjoyed). I'd grab that for ease and tweak from there to taste.
Awesome! Now you just need to make Bass strings for me to buy
What does the 9th string sound like? Is it like a guitar, or would someone think it is actually a bass instead? That string sounds so much for a guitar.
