Tricolore Violin String Tensions

This table shows the tensions that result from the Tricolore gauges available for the violin. The string length is assumed to be about 33cm and the pitch standard is assumed to be a-440. If the string length on your instrument is a little longer, then the tension will be a little more.  If the string length on your instrument is a little shorter, then the tension will be a little less.  You can use this table to find out what sort of tension will result when using these strings on your instrument.
