Ukulele String Comparison Spreadsheet. Aquila Nylgut has a specific density and acoustical qualities nearly identical to that of gut, and is the first truly.

Does anyone have a copy of the spreadsheet? It shows "in owner's trash" and cannot be viewed from the link.

I authored the spreadsheet. Try the link now as I tried to restore it.

Oops. I made this spreadsheet years ago and may have misplaced the original. I will try and update it.

Thanks for re-posting that. Also, I don't know if this has been mentioned earlier in the thread, but I think the Martin string diameters are listed backwards.

Yes, for a long time Martin had them reversed on the packaging. I think they have corrected that.

Yeah, I do remember that. All the current packs I've bought for a while have had them listed correctly.

This is great. It is particularly helpful since I may attempt to try using fishing line as strings. This gives me an idea of what gauges to try.

Thanks,
Bill

I think that there is also a more recent sheet with calculated tensions for a large number of strings. This may have been compiled last year or not much before that. A comparison may be useful.
