View Full Version : Wound C vs. unwound

08-26-2010, 02:58 PM
Ok, probably a newbie question but hey, I'm a newbie.
I ordered an extra set of aquila strings for my new tenor when I ordered the uke.
I assumed that the wound C was the standard but when I got the uke it had an unwound c string.
It sounds good but now my extra set of strings is different than what's on the uke. Will I be able to use the wound C on my uke without having the nut filed? Not that it's a huge deal I can always just order another set but is there an advantage or difference between the two in sound or feel? All high G tuning btw.

Aloha CB56,
Not sure on that one, but it should fit....but it will give you a chance to try out the regular "C" string and feel and hear the difference.
I'm sure you can just order the wound "C" string separate.....give them a call and find out....I Hope this helps!!! MM Stan..
