Here are some string questions for ya. Been on the Southcoast website looking at their strings. Which ones would work best on my Big Island Koa tenor and my Mainland mahogany tenor and concert? Is this the only place to purchase them? Also been on Elderly's site. Which Worth Browns should I get for said ukes? Also, will order some Blacklines. Thanks.

With regard to Worth strings, it would be helpful to know your preferences. Clears are brighter; Browns are mellower; hard tension strings are going to sound louder or clearer, but they will be harder on your fingers. I have not tried the Fats.

Regarding the southcoast strings I went for medium on my tenor (re-entrant)

Sounds great tuned up to C or in B/Bflat. It all depends on what sort of tension you want. Their site has plenty of info on this:
