    Anyone who knows where I can find (links) info. about stringtension for different kind/brands of el. bass guitarr strings
    (preferably gattered at one place)

    I like rather low or medium tensioned strings (nickelplated round wounds, compressed/goundwound/halfrounds, flats and coated) but not so lowtensioned that it will cause problems with the bassneck relief (some low t. str. can't manage to bow bassnecks with single action trussrodds even if the trossrod is totaly slacked)

    i have heard that DR roundcores are quite low tension, and dose anyone know what the tension is between nickel and steel?
