    mixing different tension strings

    do medium tension strings create a louder tone , then say softer tension, and visa versa does a string with more tension create a louder sound on the same instrument on the same string. is the any disadvantage to using mixed tensions , or can you mix and match to get the sound you want, I have seen other threads talk about mixing strings , but not sure if they mentioned fi they were comparable in tension ( as a set of mediums vs. 2 mediums 1 soft and one hard ). are there any general rules for picking strings ( that are not in a set) ? thanks.

    What is it about E strings?

    I wonder , since this thread was 5 years old, is everyone of the same opinion on the e string makers, have they changed how they make them , the same , improved, gotten worse?
