View Full Version : Banjo Uke Strings

I am wanting some info about banjo ukulele strings. To my knowledge, La Bela and Aquila make sets with a wound C string. Can anyone please explain the reason behind the wound C string, instead of an unwound string? Thanks!

I'm not sure why only the C string would be wound....

I have medium fluorocarbons on my soprano banjo uke and they sound great. Martins or Worth mediums are almost identical in play and sound on it.

Good luck,

I think they are lower tension and if it weren't wound, it would flop-n-buzz.
