I've found that I like the sound of carbon strings, but every one I've tried has been a fairly high tension string. Does anyone out there know of a carbon set that by measurement, is a low tension similar to an D'addario EJ45?
A string from the same material and length would have to be thinner to be lower tension at the same pitch. So you would have to find the thinnest "carbon" string, i.e. fluoropolymer string.
If you can't find thin guitar string, you can always try something like Seaguar Blue Label fishing leader, which is made of the same material. Here are some specs (note the pounds are maximum tension before breaking, so the actual tension at pitch would be much less). For example I would look at diameters as low as 0.4mm.
