View Full Version : Soprano string on concert?

07-22-2012, 06:48 PM
I've wanted a low g string on my uke for a while, mainly for my arrangements of songs. I have a set of Aquila soprano (low g) strings. Would I be able to throw that soprano string of my concert uke? Or does anyone know of any other companies that make low g unwound yet? I'd really really would appreciate your feedback.

Thanks in advance

If the strings are long enough you could give it a go, at least for the low G string.
(Soprano strings on a concert could have an effect on the sound, you might be interested in reading this (http://www.southcoastukes.com/stringuide.htm).)

I don't know if Ken Middleton has any plans of offering a low G concert set of his Living Water Strings (http://www.kenmiddleton.co.uk/Pages/LWS.aspx) in the near future (he has a tenor one on sale already) - might be worth looking at this thread in the forum (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?66777-LIVING-WATER-STRINGS-new-range-of-uke-strings).

I believe that individual Aquila low g strings are available, not sure about unwound, but I think they are.
with some string companies, the soprano/concert strings are the same thickness.
