I current have a Mya Moe Tenor Resonator with a High G. I was thinking of switching it to a low G. Has anyone tried this and does a Low G work well with a resonator. If so what string set do you recommend.

When I had a resonator (Recording King Concert Reso), I strung it with a Low G. For how bright and shrill the instrument itself was (mine was completely metal, so that played a part also), the low G helped to bring some body and depth to the instrument that re-entrant tuning didn't have.

As for strings, I had a set of Aquila that came on it, and all I did was throw on a wound G string. Later I switched it to some black nylon with a phosphor bronze low G, and that warmed it up a bit more.

I have a concert sized Mya-Moe, and like a polished wound low g on it. I like to reduce finger squeak, yet the wound string gives good sustain.

I use Worth Clears Low G on my Mya-Moe Tenor Resonator
