redsnapper String Gauges (35) RE: String Gauges 04 Oct 07


I generally reckon on about 8 to 9 kgs tension for mandolin and 14 to 15 for guitar from experience.

But this other very useful string gauge calculator (the one I generally use for custom instruments) has a formula and applet that will help work out the ideal tension.
