Questions about degrees of tension
On classical guitar string sets, there are degrees of tension listed. i.e. high, medium....
Can you explain this?
Rick Andrews Answers Your Question Below.
Well to tell you the truth I have not dealt withn that issue before since
most of my experience is with electrics and acoustics and jazzy-dazzy

The classical guitars I worked on over the years had the strings on
them and I don't remember ever restringing one. This does make sense though.
Most are plastic strings nowdays and they are available I think in different
guages or thicknesses.
This would make a huge difference in the tention on
the strings by the time you reach the tuning. I would certainly use a lower
tension string on a lesser expensive guitar to not warp the neck. Higher
tension puts a lot more tension or tightness to the neck. You will notice
that the lower tension strings sag more floppy like my ears. The higher
tension is far tighter like my underwear and harder to play but a cleaner
higher frequency pitch that some like better.
I would like a medium tension
for the best of both sides of this. A very good question. I never really
noticed that but it makes sense. It would work the same way the steel
strings do. There we go, we learned something together on this one.
