Comparing between manufacturers requires more than words - one company’s medium can be another company’s high etc.jscott wrote: ↑Sun Oct 07, 2018 11:51 pmRe: the last two entries. I think that this illustrates why simply stating in English (or French or Arabic, etc.) what the tension is for the treble and/or bass strings would be clearer than having each manufacturer come up with their own idiomatic code.
er, "own idiomatic" is redundant, but hopefully the point is made. Redundant for emphasis, I claim.
There’s a thread somewhere that attempts to actually quantify the tension.
That said, it’s only important if you choose strings by tension.
