View Full Version : Savarez Set Blog Post

08-17-2010, 05:07 PM
Well, I could not just rest on my Jake Shimabukuro interview - I had to keep doing more for the blog, so while this is no Q and A with Jake, I have posted a rather useful guide to building a Savarez set as well as some video links to Ken Middleton's wonderful Aquila v. Worth comparo. Since the Savaarez sound so much to me like Worths, I think it shows the difference between the two type of stings quite well, indeed. As always, find it at http://lambchopukulele.blogspot.com/. Thanks, Mike

You should also have a reference to Curt Sheller's website about strings (http://www.curtsheller.com/ukulele/strings.php#Koolau). Scroll down to the sub topic "Using Classical Guitar String Set on Ukulele".

Yes, the actual link is http://www.curtsheller.com/ukulele/strings/index.php (just putting it here so I can find it to add to the blog). Thanks, that will be helpful! His site is so great! Mike
