Thanks :)

tuned by ear so not exactly spot on - but the tuning should be something like low G, middle G, B above middle G

So - low octave - octave - minor third

The strings are something like 50 wound, 18-ish plain, 15-ish plain

Previous iteration of cardboard sounded better when strung in drop D or drop C with all wounds, but I think I'll make a bass next time :)
