I have a cheap Hilo baritone. Will Tenor strings fit this? I tune it high g.
Thanks in advance.

I've heard of people using tenor strings for Bari, I'm not sure if I would recommend it though. I use Aquila GCEA strings for baritones.

I started using D'Addario baritone strings a while ago and like them quite a bit. I bought them via Musician's Friend.

It'll sound better with a low g. The large bari body really wants something below middle c. If you've got one low 4th uke, this will be it. Try the top 3 strings of a classical guitar set, or move the top 3 of a bari set over, and then a thin (.022"-.026") string on top.
