|GUEST,Grab||Guitar string tension v gauge (29)||RE: Guitar string tension v guage||12 Oct 04|
Coincidentally Johnny, I emailed Malcolm Newtone about the exact same thing! I'd noticed that on his mandola strings, the D string in the "medium" set was a thinner gauge than the D string in the "light" set, so I wrote to ask him what the deal was with that. That was his reply to me too - the difference is more in the core, so all wound strings of the same gauge are not created equal as far as the tension to get them up to a particular note goes.
