I'm also interested in the Pyramid strings and have just checked the tensions vs the D'Addario EJ45/EJ44/EJ46, for what it's worth:
D'Addario EJ45 Normal Tension: 6.49 kg (average tension)
D'Addario EJ44 Extra Hard Tension: 6.94 kg
D'Addario EJ46 Hard Tension: 6.80 kg
Pyramid Sterling Silver Nylon Medium Tension: 6.50 kg
Pyramid Sterling Silver Carbon Medium Tension: 7.20 kg
Pyramid Sterling Silver Carbon Medium Tension with Augustine Imperial Medium 1st and 2nd: 6.78 kg *** guess ***
Taking one of Peter's suggestions of using the Pyramid Sterling Silver Carbon 3rd to 6th strings with, say Augustine Imperial Medium 1st and 2nd - I've tried to estimate the likely tension. This is a guess as Augustine only publish the diameters of the strings. I have assumed the density of the Augustine Imperial Mediums is similar to that of the D'Addario strings and interpolated between the tensions of their Normal and High Tension strings, based on their diameters vs those of Augustine Imperial Medium.
