    While researching flats on the web, I read that someone mentioned a post on flat wound tension specs, by BGAVIN. If there is such a link, could someone direct me to it?

    Thanks, Steve

    bgavin has distributed an Excel spreadsheet called Musicians Reference with all kinds of data on lots of equipment. The string tension data seems, for the most part, to be from manufacturer's specs, and most of that is available on their respective websites. Since few string manufacturers release tension data, there is little of it on the spreadsheet. A link to it is in his signature.
