Looking for a starter tenor for a friend and wondering whether the Oscar Schmidt OU2T or Diamond Head DU-200T would be a better choice? Not looking to send a ton. FYI this will have low G tuning using worth HD clears.

Thanks so much!!

Wish I could help. Bumping this for someone who can...

For what it's worth, I have a KPK tenor with Worth clears on it, low G. And it is an amazing sounding and feeling instrument.

Neither. I recommend the Ohana TK-10:

Recently got an OS OU28T - the 8-string version of the OS tenor. After adjusting the nut slots a bit and putting Aquila NylGut strings on it, I love it. I use a pick most of the time, and the sound is much better than I expected. The 4-string will sound somewhat different, but here's what the 8-string sounds like.

I have generally been happy with Oscar Schmidt ukes, although I set them up to play more to my liking. Never really heard of Diamond head..I don't think theyre as well known
