Spectra with full towers of levels are expected due to the quantization of the string vibrations.

We study a spectrum of flux tubes with static quark and antiquark sources for pure gauge SU(3) lattice QCD in 3+1 dimensions up to a significant number of excitations.

To go high in the spectrum, we specialize in he most symmetric case, the Σ+𝑔, use a large set of operators, solve the generalized eigenvalue and compare different lattice QCD gauge actions and anisotropies.
