Re: Tuning for Cabinet Drop

For the push/pull guitar, I start with an E note from the tuner and use the harmonic method so the pedal notes will be in tune with the notes affected by the drop in pitch. I tune my 3rds around 438, but no matter how you tune them, the harmonic method takes care of the other thirds as long as you tune them to the standard you originally set. The way I tune, strings 6, 8, and 10 are no problem intonation wise except they sound out of tune until I get with a band. When I used to tune them by ear, the opposite was true. They sounded fine until I played with other instruments.
