I purchased Worth BT strings for my tenor, and today I bought a concert Fluke off Facebook. Since you basically get enough string for two ukes, is it a bad idea to string put the remaining strings on the concert?

As long as they fit the nut slots you should be fine. Also be aware of the tension. You may need to tune higher to get an acceptable tension on the shorter scale. On the other hand, tenor is normally a higher tension anyway, so they may be just fine tuned normally, i.e. with a lower tension.

I have used Worth Brown Tenor Scale BM's on my concert
and soprano ukuleles for years,with no harm done.If you
check the string diameters there is very little difference
between tenor and soprano scale anyway. I followed the
advice of a friend who is a professional player, and this is
something he has done for many years with no ill effect!

Thanks everyone. Good to know. I will probably try it out once the strings come in.

I received my Worth BT strings, and after changing the strings on my tenor I used the remaining strings on my concert Fluke. I’m glad I did. They sound great. Much better than the factory strings.
