Guys,

Got a question for you. Can I use the D'Addario Concert-sized strings (bought from this web) on my Soprano? Has anyone tried? Thanks.

Yes, concert and soprano strings are often even the same thing when sold. They'll be fine.

In general, you can use all kind of strings on the small sized soprano/sopranino
but you can't always use a soprano-set for a bigger tenor ukulele because of the string length.

I've some premium strings from RISA (ukulele.de) that arrived in a set of 2pairs
but in fact there are only 4 strings in the package : They are much longer so you can cut them in half or thirds depending of your need.

D'Addario Strings are guitar strings: Compared to a guitar a tenor ukulele looks still like a sopranino ;)
