You can sell the g and a string separately and still have a complete 4 string set.

I wasnt sure if that would work the same. I looked at the diameter of the regular 4 string pack and it was different

Would you mind listing the diameters for the 6 string set? The 6 string should use the basic strings (G C E A) as a 4 string set. The doubled set should be the (1st course) with a low A and the C string (3rd course) should be an octave up.

I have heard that the doubled strings are thinner than strings that are not doubled. That would compensate for the higher string tension of holding down more strings at a time, and make the uke easier to play. Even at that, I found the 8 string ukes a little too hard tension-wise for my hands. The 6 string was OK though.

I think that you could just use the G C E A strings and string up your 4 stringer with no issues. I know that I have done that in the past with 6 string set.

I agree with you. The 8 string was harsh on the fingers.
