: well, you need to be more specific. are you talking about the 8-strings with doubled strings, an octave apart, or are you talking about the 8-strings which have the individual strings, like F# - F natural or B to B flat?

Dear Stew:I am speaking of basses with double courses,tuned E-A-D-G with pairs of strings in octaves. The first one I saw was made by Hagstrom back in the 1970's. Carol Robelli(SamAsh)and Dean recently offered 8-strings;I wanted to see if anyone thought they were worth using,or if an octave doubling stomp box would do the same thing.
