Next string. Using a set of 12,s. low e up to a , a up o d , and d up to g. I can go up at least five semitones on the thicker strings without snapping. If anyone has tested a set of 12,s or 13,s and tuned above standard please post. Tell me how high you got.

Re: How high can guitar strings tune above standard

How do you find the breaking tension of wound strings? For wound strings you would use the diameter core. A .056 low E would probably have a core of .018. A .042 A string would be .016. A .032 D string would be a .015. A .025 G string would be .014.
