    maybe we should get a high end microphone and record it and compare data such as the frequency of each tension, etc. that would be cool.

    i think you should hit some birds... i wana hear the different sound of different tension. that would be cool.

    How interesting--I was thinking about this the other day, and almost posted a thread asking about it. It's an quick way to see how similar/accurate stringers are when you ask for, say 28lbs.

    Wait for more data. Maybe a better idea just to get the data when it's freshly strung right off the machine, then you could determine right off the bat if it was strung tight enough initially.

    My C# would be around 23/25 or 22.5/24.5.
    to add to this, there are also different octaves. your c# could be 1 octave lower in terms of musical notes. I am not sure if that is actually true... but it could be. Also different strings sounds a little different. TI strings gives more metallic sound and there for could sound higher at the same tension as another string.

    It's neither almost nor exactly those notes.
    It's almost exactly those notes

    One problem with that if it's 1 octave too low, then the calibration machine would have serious issues because the tensino would be like way below 20 hahahah!!

    It would not really matter if the strings are Ti or not, what we mainly paying attention to is the note or freqency it makes.

    According to you, ur c# is around 23/25 (seems off about 2 lbs compared to old hand's). Using this as a base, ur E is at 25/27, so 23=c 24=d 25=e. Every lb seems to be 1 note letter for you.

    For old hand, every lbs seems to be a half note.

    Someone stringer might be off (not calibrated) or different material is used.

    if you have tuning fork, it is made of a certain metal. You can't use a piece of wood of same size and shape and recreate this frequency, can you. or maybe a different metal eg. aluminum and recreate this frequency. so material does matter too. Same thing with piano strings which is why you need to tune it and different strings are tightened a little differently to produce the same sounding frequency.

    If you both have the same strings, (racket frame might be different but itz just graphite.) then it should sound quite similar, if it does not, someone's stringer isn't calibrated correctly =P

    btw... i say that there is a difference when you use a different string because of the gauge too. i hear difference between a bg66 strung at 28x30 and a bg 65 strung at 28x30 i would not attribute it to be off my 1 whole note, but maybe a sharp or a flat (which is some other key's sharp).
    when i string a TI and i compare it to non-ti, the metallic sound in the TI throws me off a bit.

    It's all DinkALot's fault

    He should have made the video with freshly strung racquets.
    Not after putting them through some awfully mighty hits

    You can be sure that the overall tension must have dropped by more than a few notches after that mauling.

    My fresh 27 sounds like his used 29.
    As such, my 27 is nearly the note D.

    Maybe the panda will find some time to take this further

    I think you meant to quote me since I was the one who said C# is around 23/25, random estimate since I forgot that one is 1 lb once you get a base.

    Just to clarify, yes it was two different strings and rackets which made it confusing. Provided below is my data to clear things up.

    For my ArcSaber 10 and 7 (crank). Base E = 25.5/27.5 using NGB98. D= 24.5/26.5, C = 23.5/25.5, and so forth.

    My friends NS9KX using NGB95 (ECP). Base D# = 26.

    Awesome video, another thing I found out was that you can't compare the sounds of different tensions with different guage strings never mind different strings. 0.70mm always sounds lower than thinner strings @ same tensions!

    Great GrandMaster SH, you will need a new machine for your 31 X 34 lbs string job .
