On the blinged out Kamaka tenor in your most recent videos? Man those sound sweet to me.

he says he uses the D'addario strings, the same kine Jake Shimabukuro uses, Pro-Arte.

Are those the J-71?

Yeah, those are the ones he has on right now.

I think I remember vaguely that sometimes he customizes his own set of D'addario strings for higher tension, but the recent videos are J71 which have normal tension.

cool I just bought some at a local music shop. Going to put on tonight and stretch them out over a couple of beers.

I wanted to try out the normal tension strings. Most of the time I use the extra high tension strings and just double up on the high E for both my G and A strings.

I just put the normal tensions on tonight and I love how they sound and feel.

I also have the D'Addario Pro-Artes on my Kala concert uke. They feel great and the sound is awesome.
