Introduction
Whether you are a luthier, a repair tech, or someone looking to find your “ideal” set
for your application, string tension will play a role. It is with this in mind that we at
GHS have put together our Electric Guitar String Guide, as a way to help you find the
information you are looking for to help you in whatever role you fall.
PLEASE NOTE: We have provided this guide as a reference of the tension of our strings
at various pitches. Please use caution when making sets that have extremely high
tensions, as the set as a whole may put undue stress on the neck, as well as snap the
core of the strings prematurely.
How to Calculate Tension
Frequency Chart
String tension is the amount of force a string has when tuned to a specific pitch. To find
out the tension of a particular string, you need three variables: the Unit Weight, the
Scale Length, and the Frequency or Pitch of the string you will be using. We have
taken the time to provide you with a comprehensive list of all of our current electric
guitar strings, in single strings as well as in our pre-packaged sets. The formulas used
to this end are the industry standard, and can be used to approximate other string
tensions.
For those guitarists that prefer to use altered - or down - tunings, we present our
tension guide in such a way as to help facilitate your endeavors, to make choosing the
ideal set of strings for your application much easier.

F
UNIT WEIGHT: The weight of the string, measured in pounds per
linear inch (lb/in).
SCALE LENGTH: The vibrating length of a string. Measure the distance
from the nut to the bridge of the instrument to find the scale length. GHS
has used the 25.5” scale length (typical for Fender) in the enclosed
guide. Your individual instrument may vary.
FREQUENCY or PITCH: The specific pitch at which each note is expressed,
represented in cycles per second (Hertz).
To calculate the tension of a particular string in pounds, use the formula below,
inserting the three needed variables.
T (Tension) = (UW x (2 x L x F)2) / 386.4
For those looking for a specific tension, you can use the formula below to get the unit
weight for your particular needs. With that, compare the unit weight against the ones
listed in the following pages to find the string gauge that meets your needs.
The chart below represents the frequency or pitch of each note, as it relates to the guitar
fretboard. Standard tunings are shown in bold type; use the additional frequencies to
calculate tension for strings when using altered tunings.

Other Considerations
A common misconception is that the tension of a string is the same as the feel of the
string under your fingers. And while string tension plays a part, there are a number
of other processes that will also have an affect on the tone and playability of a string.
Winding Techniques: There are four types of winding techniques used for strings. The
type providing the brightest tone (all else being equal) is the roundwound string. Next
is the rollerwound, followed by the groundwound (also called a halfwound) and finally
a flatwound.
Roundwound
Rollerwound
Groundwound
Flatwound
String Materials: The hardness of common materials used in the cover wire of strings
affects both the tone and “feel” of a string. Usually, with all else remaining constant,
the harder the material the brighter the string. Common cover wire materials include
(ranked by order of brightness) stainless steel, Alloy 52, nickel plated steel, pure nickel,
and for acoustics, brass and bronze.
String Geometry: “String Geometry” generally refers
to the ratio of the core wire diameter to the cover wire
diameter. These two parameters are utilized to come up
with the final string gauge. All else remaining constant,
a small core-to-cover ratio generally results in a string
with greater flexibility and brighter tone. A larger coreto-cover ratio generally results in a string with greater
volume, sustain, tone life and durability.

Final Thoughts
This tension guide is just that; a guide. You’re the expert at your own personal playing
style and needs, so if something doesn’t feel/sound right, you can change it. Music is a
very organic art form, so while you can start with science, you perfect it by touch and
feel.
If you’re perfectly happy with playing a pre-packaged set of strings, GREAT!
If you’re excited about putting together that balanced tension set, GREAT!
If you want to try a set with less/more tension than what you’re used to, GREAT!
You’re playing. You’re learning. That’s the important part. We’ll provide the strings; you
provide the inspiration.
