Standard Mandolin

Light gauge of standard mandolin string vs light gauge of standard guitar string?

Do light gauge of standard mandolin E string have same gauge with light gauge of standard guitar E string?
If no, which is more heavier?
I mean guitar high E string

When describing string gauges, the term "light" is only a general guideline. The strings that one manufacturer might describe as "light", another might call "extra light" because there are no precise industry standards. The strings themselves are most accurately measured by gauge.

If you check the web, you'll find that the range of E strings on mandolin sets advertized as light gauge fall between .009 and .011 http://www.musiciansfriend.com/mandolin-strings?_requestid=435318

Light gauge acoustic guitar strings would tend to be more in the .011 - .012 range.....a little heavier. You can find thinner acoustic E strings but they would be considered "extra light". Electric guitar strings run a little lighter than acoustic, so those lights are equivalent to mandolin lights.

Remember that the string thickness is only one consideration. The scale length of the instrument plays a huge part in the overall tension of the string.
