NO MORE PEEPS! :shaka:

i know its nothing big but i just bought something with MY pay pal not the parents haha. anyways i just bought an aquila wound low g pack. before i string them up what should i expect to have complications with stringing up low g. will the thickness of the string cause problem with the nut?? also take time to post your likes and or dislikes about a low g setup. lets hear it all down to the nitty gritty!


thx

I put a Low G on my Kala Mango Tenor, and the change was trouble free. I am using the Worths Clear Med– so it is not a wound string. I didn't have to make any adjustments to the uke set up at all. And, I love the warmth of the low G tuning. I have a long neck soprano tuned to high G so I can go back and forth. Both tunings have something to offer, and it's a lot of fun to experiment. The transformation in the sound is almost like getting another uke. Have fun!

I love low g as much as I love reentrant. That's why I have almost 2 of every uke I own.

I've had to widen a few nuts. I just use a nail file.

From my experience, the wound low G in the Aquila set only lasts about two days before it starts becoming unwound at almost every point where it touches the frets. :( I hope it was a dud, and that you have better luck with yours.

I like the sound of low G. Just haven't found the right strings for it yet.

I bought the same pack too and the wound low G was way too loud. It was good for picking but way too over powering when strumming.. IMO

I have had the best luck with the Hilo low G sets. Much better than the Aquilas.
