View Full Version : Bronze Baritone Strings

As far as I can tell, GHS is the only company that makes bronze-wound baritone strings. Over the years, I've realized that those are the only baritone strings I truly don't dislike.

LaBella silverwounds wear out super easily.

Aquila and D'addario silverwounds have (IMO) an overly twangy and boomy sound... I'm not sure if the sound comes from low tension (I suspect it does, because unwound Aquila reds, which are still superior to the Aquila silverwounds, have a similar sound) or if it has something to do with the way they're wound.

Anyway, I've got two questions for everyone:

1) Does anyone else feel the same way about Aquila and D'addario silverwound strings?

2) Has anyone found a company other than GHS that makes bronzewound strings?

3) If you're going to suggest that I "stop playing baritone, because it's not a real ukulele" or that I string it GCEA, come up with an original argument, because I've heard both of those suggestions many, many times. :-)
