What are medium tension strings?
Medium gauge strings (medium tension) They are the most popular string choice for violinists. These strings are designed intentionally to bring a balanced response and tone to just about any violin. We recommend newer violinists try medium strings first.
What is the difference between high tension and low tension guitar strings?
It follows that high tension strings are generally heavy strings, while normal and low tension are lighter strings. The three treble strings are commonly made of nylon, but can also be made of more dense fluorocarbon.
Do balanced tension strings make a difference?
The strings do feel different. Not in terms of slipperiness but more in terms of bending. The G, B and E strings require about the same amount of effort to bend, which is different from my experience with non-balanced tension strings.
Are light or medium guitar strings better?
If most of your playing involves hard strumming, medium-gauge strings will likely be a better choice, though they may prove a little more challenging to new players’ fingers. If your playing is a mix of strumming and fingerpicking, a light-medium string set may be a good choice.

What is normal guitar string tension?
On a 25.5″-scale instrument strung with standard medium-gauge strings, the tension created is around 189 pounds. A shorter-scale instrument strung with the same medium-gauge strings has approximately six pounds less string tension pulling on the soundboard.
