Hi Sheldon, First I want to say how much I like the Dingwall strings. I usually play a few hours each day, and I have had a set on my ABZ since September and they still feel/sound good. My question, I remember reading on TB that the strings were made by GHS but the formula was exclusive to Dingwall. I think at the time this was true on all except the Super J being 35' scale. Is that still the case, are the Super J strings now a special formula as well? whatever it is you are doing, keep it up, these are the BEST strings period! Take care, Scott

Thanks for the kind coments. I'm glad you're enjoying the strings. The Super J strings are mostly standard GHS with a shorter version of our custom B.

Thanks Sheldon, I forgot to ask last time, is the string gauge the same as on the longer scale strings? Thanks, Scott

No, the longer scale E, A, D are lighter.

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":1e6qmbzd]No, the longer scale E, A, D are lighter.[/quote:1e6qmbzd] Ah! Sheldon I am a bit confused :) I have here, 2 sets of new Dingwall strings (5 strings set) one marked Super J - 5 set and the other one unmarked presumably for the Afterburner / ABII / ABZ series. Inside both packets, the individual white envelopes all have exactly the same gauge written on them, i.e. .045" / .055" /.075" /.095" /.130" Is this because you are using the same paper envelopes for both sets, or have I got the wrong strings or... were you referring to a Super J 4 strings set when you said that the longer scale E, A, D are lighter? :?: [img:1e6qmbzd]http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r200/xt660/DSC04196.jpg[/img:1e6qmbzd] [img:1e6qmbzd]http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r200/xt660/DSC04197.jpg[/img:1e6qmbzd] [img:1e6qmbzd]http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r200/xt660/DSC04198.jpg[/img:1e6qmbzd]

Hey GW, did you compare the strings inside the packets? You should be able to see if they're a different gauge :wink:

You know, this thing I mean, what are they called in english? Caliber measurer? [img:18a1vx1s]http://www.drill-service.co.uk/images_Index/VERNIER.jpg[/img:18a1vx1s]

[quote="rollerberg2000":2n8kaj7r]Calipers[/quote:2n8kaj7r] Cool, thanks, that's a trip down to the engine room to shake the chief engineer upside down until he drops a caliper for me to check the strings. Not now though we are going full steam ahead! Haha Thanks!

That has to be the most travelled set of strings ever. Where are they bound now? I wish I could help on the question. It seemed to me that the main difference was the length. My Voodoo sets for the the AB series are the same as those pictures you took. The packaging for the sets was identical, hence the mix up with AB and Super J sets.

[quote="singlemalt":spibml6f]That has to be the most travelled set of strings ever. Where are they bound now?[/quote:spibml6f] They are staying with me, my Super J is barely one month old so the original strings are still good for quite some time, but these will come handy when change is need.

GW, the Voodoos last quite a while. I was more interested in where you are sailing, as this already well travelled set, continues on it's world tour. May you have light winds and small waves.

Those are Vernier calipers, to be specific. :wink:

But isn't "vernier" a misnomer, since there is no actual vernier device on them? They are digital, so would the correct name not be "digital calipers"? I have some Mitutoyos. They are the best! The machine shop I work for uses nothing else! Sorry for the derail GW. :oops:

I use Mitutoyos at work as well. We refer to them as Verniers but I have never actually verified if it's the "correct" terminology, I guess I just assumed it was. It's mostly those and micrometers. Most have digital displays, but some of the older ones have the lines and a few remain with the dials.

We don't officially have SJ string packaging yet. We have shipped bulk strings to stores. I don't recognize the handwriting on that package so can't confirm how the strings got into the package. No need for a caliper, you'll be able to tell from the length if they are Super J or long scale strings.

However I am pleased to confirm that the ones marked as Super J are indeed shorter than the other strings sets I have here for the ABZ / ABII which proves I have got the correct strings sets. What is interesting, in my findings is that, having borrowed a digital vernier tool from the engine room, I have measured the gauges and they are both ".127 on the B, and so on down to the G strings the gauges are identical on both sets the only thing that sets them apart is their overall length. Is that normal?
