Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to learn some mandolin before I take the plunge and actually buy one. I have a set of the Aquila's tuned to Fifths (GDAE), but the E string was so brittle that it snapped just above the knot enough times to make it too short to fit on my uke..

Any string experts out there to help me figure out how to make a set by individual strings (maybe classical guitar strings). Its for a soprano Ohana ukulele. The set I had consisted of a wound G with Nylon D,A,E strings.

Thanks
