I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment Does anyone make nylon strings for a standard acoustic guitar (non-classical)?
Keep stretching and tightening. Eventually it will settle and stay in tune. The same thing happens when you string a classical guitar.

Consideration of a pre-amp instead.

@DavidAxtellMooreII seems we're wrong or out of date about this - thomastik-infeld.com/upload/TI_cello%20folder%2003_07print.pdf modern cello strings with ~30LBS tension and apparently all-metal construction.

Ooooops! Fixed. Don't tune any of your strings an octave too high!

I'm assuming electric guitar strings, which work at much higher tensions than nylon cello strings.

With bass guitar strings, I'd worry more about the lifetime of the instrument's neck, than the lifetime of the string.

comment Pushing a tube amp : better use the channel volume or master volume?
Your amp has a line-out. Try connecting that to a hi-fi or similar. You'll lose the character of the speaker/cabinet but you'll be able to make use of the valves' character.
