I'm hoping to buy some aquila baritone strings for my baritone and on the deacription box of the place i am buying from, it says that there is only one qound string and so, i am assuming it to be the D string which is wound.

Would i be able to use the G on the baritone set on my tenor as a low g string without any harm or would i have to buy a tenor low g set too?

Like wise, can a tenor low g be used on a baritone?

You can certainly try it - it's unlikely to be high enough tension to damage the uke. Whether it will intonate properly and sound balanced with the other strings is just something you have to test.

I use classical guitar strings on my tenor, and so do lots of other people, so you certainly can use a baritone string on a tenor. As OldePhart said, you won't know until you try whether you like the way it sounds.

I know of one soprano player who uses Worth
Tenors on all of his sops, so the difference in
poundage per tuning should not be that great?
