Are the fatbeams same or higher tension then sunbeams? Ty.
I'm interested in the tension of Sunbeams as well. Looking at putting them on my fretless when I get it.
The signature gauge fatbeams on my fretted LTD seem slightly lower in tension to me than 45-100 sunbeams do on my fretless MIM jazz. I haven't tried both on the same bass to compare, though, so your results may vary.
They are similar strings in contruction, both have round core so tension is close. But stainless is generally a little higher in tension, all things being equal. Not a lot higher though.
Ah, ok, Ty. So about the same or slightly higher tension for the fatbeams maybe,
