I love the Hannabach 815 trebles. I use the "super low" in the yellow package for some guitars. Those are equivalent in tension to D'Addario Normal tension. On other guitars I use the "low tension" in the green package, which is the equivalent in tension to D'Addario Hard tension.
Are you saying the Hannabach 'super low' is equivalent to D'addario 'normal'? I find this a surprising comment. I use the green low tension and these are noticeably different to the D'addario normal so the yellow super low must surely be very different. Am I missing something?
Not sure what you mean when you say "noticeably different." You mean they feel higher in tension, lower in tension? Or just different in feel?
There was a discussion in a different thread about the string tensions between Hannabach trebles for super-low, low, and normal. It prompted me to email Strings By Mail to inquire. Bottom line - in the past the tensions went up gradually from yellow to green to black. Now the Hannabach packages indicate the trebles are the same between these three Hannabachs.
So I'm not sure if what I observed before is still true or not. But to me the yellow Hannabach trebles were close in tension to the D'Addario Normal tension trebles. Here's the string tensions before
they changed so that the trebles are the same between the three sets, yellow green black.
Here's the D'Addario Normal tension set.
