Tension Measurements: Pyramid Gold Flats & TI Powerbass
Today I use TI Powerbass rounds (107) and Pyramid Gold Flats (105) all long scale. I wanted to see if I could interchange without invoking a truss-rod adjustment, but it looks like the tensions are different enough that isn't gonna happen.
1 - I wanted to confirm the measurements I found:
Pyramid Nickel Flat Bass Lg-Sc = 164.9 pounds
Source: http://www.pyramid-saiten.de/catalog...log_12_eng.pdf Page 29 string set 640/1
TI Powerbass = 183.62 pounds
2 - Looking for suggestions on alternative strings to give me a better match. Maybe Fender flats?, or a different set of rounds. I want minimal fret noise and strong fundamentals.
Thanks for all suggestions.
Forgot to add: If you have a pointer to more tension charts or databases, I'd appreciate that too, so I can look.
It'd be great to have a thread that lists the overall tension of as many different brands and types as possible. I'll go looking to see what I can find. :D
Incidentally, at what point do most ppl feel that the difference in tension is too high to simply make the swap without having to do a truss adjustment?
Funny thing to me is that even though the Pyramids have lower tension, they feel like they have higher tension. The Powerbass feel springy.
Anyone have an idea of string tension of fender 9050cl set compared to pyramid golds? Tension on golds is listed above, so the question is around the tension of the fender strings. Thanks
