It got me marvelled over a selection sets of strings that I have been working on to match my 64cm spruce top guitar.
Apart from looking for desirable tone and colours on various brands,are the overall string tensions more important criteria that I overlooked?
First it came with 98.44 lbs hard tension set per lutheir's recommendation.I dislike the rather stiff feeling trebles and I moved on to 79.97 lbs set then 82.23 lbs set,apparently these medium tensions have not enough strength to drive the soundboard.As curiousity stepped in I put on 105.6 lbs set and this time the bass side got choked,trebles were fine because of lesser tension.
Should I then keep the string tensions between 85 lbs to 95 lbs in order to make the guitar stay alive?Or should I get different bass and treble sets?
