Since the tension is even across all strings, does that mean that there is less perceived tension overall?
Like, right now my 7 string fretless bass has a pretty flub-bub low B and a tight as jebus high F...
I like having a wound high F, but am wondering if I should get like a 0.029 rather than say a 0.022 / 0.025 because im kinda used to the tight rope type tension now, and dont want a flub-bub high F.
Am I over thinking this?
Throw your opinions here.
One, don't over think it. If a set of gauges feels good to you, then it's good.
Two, the basic idea is to select strings such that at your preferred tuning they all have similar timings. Exactly what that means is personal taste - some people try to get as close to exactly the same as possible, while others try to have their heaviest strings slightly more tense than their lighter ones.
If you like the tension of your high F, then figure out exactly what that tension is, and then select strings that will get you similar tension across all strings. It may be tough to do exactly on the lower strings, so a little bit of compromise may be necessary. You can probably go down slightly on the F and over a week or so you'll likely never notice the distance.
