GHS Strings Launch Updated Guitar Tension Charts
Today’s modern music has so many styles and trends there is no longer a single string solution suitable for every method of playing or preferred sound. More and more players are choosing to modify their string selection to create their own unique voice.
With this in mind, GHS Strings has put together their Acoustic, Bass Electric Guitar String Guide to help players find the information they need to identify their ‘ideal’ set. This extensive list gives string tensions for all current GHS Acoustic, Bass and Electric strings, including singles and sets. The formulas used are industry standards and can be used to approximate other string tensions. The presentation of the charts also makes them ideal for guitarists who prefer to use altered or down tunings because they are designed to facilitate an easy choice of the perfect string set for their desired application.
The free tension guides include details on how to calculate tensions, frequency charts, as well as other things to consider such as winding techniques, string materials and string geometry. They allow you to go beyond standard settings, to customize and create your very own set of strings for your instrument and your sound.
GHS have been at the forefront of string innovation for more than fifty years. ‘The String Experts’ have drawn on this lengthy history to carefully craft a useful tool for players of Acoustic, Bass and Electric guitars that will help them achieve the best possible tone and a long lasting performance.
