Difference(s) between Gamma X-ELS and Gamma Progression II ELS

Is there any?

I also might want to get the floor stand which is another $150, should I just get Gamma 6900, or 7900, or 8900, or 9900? The price difference between 6900 and 7900 is $300, is 7900 better? Has anyone used these stringers? I string for myself only to experiment with strings and tension. Tension accuracy and easy to string are my top priorities.

The 6900 is the exact same tension head as the ELS. The turn table has self centering columns, and the machine has the string measuring feature that is not needed. Either of the ELS on a stand is a better deal then the 6900 that has features you really don't need. I also believe the X-ELS is aluminum and the Progression is cast iron with a plastic shell.

Cool, thanks, you just confirm that I need to get the X ELS.

The base on the Prog II ELS will make you feel like a faster stringer with that almost-Ferrari-red hue...

...at least mine does :cool:

Just trying to figure out how to get it to make that same sound as the car when I start it up. It's gotta be one of those buttons, right?

I'd definitely buy a 6004/Wise before either the 6900 or 7900. Save some money AND get better base clamps
(they both sport the same bases as either of those table top electronic machines...)
(and of course, have the crank backup if ever needed which is unlikely).
