redsnapper guitar string gauges (35) RE: guitar string gauges 31 Aug 07

I play several types of instrument, open-tuned guitar and mandolin family, and use custom string gauges on each.

I like to try and get a balance of tension across the strings and also a tension appropriate to the design of the instrument, e.g. bracing, top stiffness.

I've found this string gauge applet very useful in putting together appropriate sets.
