Just out of interest - what do you call new? After what time (play time, time under tension) are your strings no longer new?celestemcc wrote: ↑Sat Oct 14, 2017 7:24 pmI use Hannabach 815s and have used medium, low, and recently high tensions in that line. I don't find that the string tension has made a difference re low-D tuning (I also have a number of pieces using it currently). For me it's the age of the strings that matter: newer strings seem to want to go back to E faster, at least in my experience. For the record though I've just ordered some 200 medium-highs, I'll let you know how it goes!
By new, I mean about up to a week old or so, playing a couple of hours a day.what do you call new? After what time (play time, time under tension) are your strings no longer new?
