I have a Kamaka HF3 with the Kamaka hard shell case.

I bought in August 2012 new from Hawaii Music Supply. It is in like new condition. It has a MISI pickup they installed and it has a strap button installed in the heel. I'm wanting something with a different sound. The Kamaka sound to me is a woody sound and I am not sure what sound I am looking for. Crazy, I know. I would consider trading it for a tenor uke of similar quality.

Have you tried changing the strings?

No, I have Aquillas with a Low G on it. It's what I have on all my ukes. What would you suggest?

Try some low G PhDs, or some living water strings.

You may try some Worth's too, I really like the clears on my Kamaka pineapple. Freemont's would be another fluorocarbon string set to try.

Give Southcast strings a try. They sound good on every uke I've tried them on.

Yes, for the high dollar(relatively speaking) The smooth wounds are my favorite.
