So i was watching one of aldrines videos, and it seemed like his strings were shiny, does he have metal-wound strings? Is there such a thing? maybe im just seeing things.....

Some sets have a metal wrapped C string (which I don't like) and, of course, most Low G sets have a metal wrapped G string so it's possible to have 2 metal wrapped strings on a uke. I use Aquila strings on all my ukes. Aquila only makes a metal wrapped low G so for my low G tuned uke I replace the Aquila low G with a Fremont .36 plain string. Works for me.

AG uses D'Addario Pro Arte Guitar String sets (not sure which ones) and he doesn't have a low g so I'm quite sure it's not wound. Maybe if he or Ryan sees this thread, they'll provide us with the right answer.
