    A web page that lists all the various strings and their tension. If there's one thing I see over and over in this forum (including my own posts) is questions relating to string tension and how they compare between different strings. Flatwound, roundwound, and everything in between. Get to it, TB, :)

    Different brands of the same gauge will have slight differences in tension, but you can roughly approximate any brands using these sources:

    Welcome to La Bella Strings!

    Also these 2 companies publish tensions on each string set webpage:

    Thomastik-Infeld - handmade strings for violin, cello, double bass, electric bass; guitar.tradition meets technologie.
