different alloy mixtures, different metallurgy processes, different winding techniques, different wind gauge (as in the gauge of the tiny little winds on each individual string... but i dont think the tightness will be too significant, maybe around 1 lb of tension increase. (which isnt alot considering a switch from 9-42's to 10-46's increases total tension by about 22 lbs)

i know GHS has their Sub Zero strings where I THINK they freeze the string after making it instead of just letting it sit. (metal gets hot when you bash it up and stretch it and shit). Theoretically, cooling the molecules faster should make them collect closer together increasing density... possibly making them tighter?

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!
