good luck Povster... work it out ... You've got me thinking about trying it too on one of these old girls .... my biggest worry was one of the increased tension on EVERTHING
Yeah, Festus. I have been pulling/tuning. I actually do that on my sitar with the kharaj, overtune then pull the heck out of it to get it ot a stable point.

As I sadi to Nick, perhpas I just have too thick string on there. I paniced a bit because the poor thing really DID feel sick. I shall try some lighter gauges before surrendering.
