View Full Version : String recommendation for KoAloha tenor (high g)

I've found I'm not a fan of low g on my KoAloha koa tenor and I've tried Worth high g but then it's way to bright. The Ukulele Site said KoAloha puts low g on their ukes because they are very bright instruments. Any recommendations on strings that can produce a warm tone? I have Mahana strings on my Pono, and I like the tone but the strings are too fat, so I'm looking for something around the size of Aquila's or Worths. I mainly strum (can't pick at all). My first post! Thanks

Which Worths did you try -- Clear or Brown?

Clears (both high and low g)

Hi, uke_of_earl!

The difference may made by the materials. Fluoro-carbon has more density and smaller in diameter than Nylon.

Which material do you prefer?

I found fluorocarbons to be less bright than nylgut, so maybe give a set a try.

(Personally, I use Living Water strings on my (Kala) acacia uke.)

No, I'm recommending using/trying fluorocarbon strings. :)
