• Everyone wants to know about the high B. That's a string developed by Octave4plus (no financial interest) that can withstand the tension of the B. It takes a lot of REALLY slow, incremental tuning to get it up to the note, so if you are limited to one axe, you may not find it practical onstage. Once you do get it tuned, it can last a very long time - I had one last for at least 9 months on the 335. Bending not recommended.

We'd done the COTB holiday thing most every year for a decade, but each year it was like brand new, mainly thanks to the minimal rough-sketch rehearsal, at least 60% by-the-seat-of-our-pants improv on stage. Pretty cool. Good memory. Thanks for posting!
