    I'm wondering about the effect of different gauges of exterior winding wire on the behavior of round-wound strings. For instance, and I'm just making this up, suppose a "fine thread" winding provides a genteel purr and a "coarse thread" winding provides gozanga.

    Is there any scholarship on this question?

    Tone, not so much. Feel, definitely.
    My experience is that thinner exterior winding tends to make the string feel more flexible.
