    I don't see how Kasha eliminates the option of reentrant - just that it would provide no benefit for reentrant. I like the aesthetic of the Kasha so it could still be worth doing just on that basis.

    That's a good point. For reference, I have a 19" scale electric tuned to DGBE with 11/14/22/30 which would actually be an "8" set like this:...

    Guitar strings :p

    Seriously, any normal set of steel electric guitar strings should work. Use the top four if you want GCEA. Use the middle 4 if you want DGBE. Start with "normal" or "medium". If...

    I had a Cordoba Mini guitalele for awhile and thought a lot of it. It was a little longer and wider than I like so I let it go, but I have no problem recommending the Mini. Can't speak to the 4...

    High g, low g, and cuatro all have their place - so I keep at least one uke in each. :cool:

    Cuatro can be done on any size but you might have to experiment with strings. My cuatro uke is tenor...

    It's into that gray area for sure. I have seen other instruments with that scale or longer called baritones and some called tenor guitar. I would tend to call it tenor guitar, but with DGBE tuning,...
  7. "Extended Reentrant" Tuning for 5-String Kiku/Ukulele

    I wonder if anyone else has ever tried something like this?

    The TL;DR version is a 5-string tuning dGBEA or under transposition would be gCEAD - normal reentrant tuning with a high "extended"...

    One too many zeros for my account. :p
    And this isn't the "break the bank" one? :eek:

    All jokes aside, good luck!

    Hmm, I strongly suspect that such a set does not exist. That's a big range to ask from a single set. I suppose your best chance would be these:

    Maybe I'm confused about what you're trying to accomplish. You want a linear DGBE tuning for tenor scale, yes? How about starting with this...

    Not tune down - use the low G as your 3rd string, the "C" as your end string (ok, this is tuned down a half step), and the E as your first string. You won't use the A string at all.

    I answered in my other thread too. To summarize, use a wound 5th string from a classical set and any normal tension low G tenor set you like. You may or may not want a wound G as well

    I know there several threads on DGBE for tenor. You pretty much have to use a wound string for the D. (Unwound barely works for low D on baritone.) Almost any "5" string from a classical guitar set...

    People that want fifths tuning generally want a linear tuning, but you're right that would give you the right chord shapes.

    Can't beat Gotoh in my opinion for looks and function, but the Graphtechs work perfectly well.

    I *might* pay that price if the cracks had been repaired and stable afterward. I don't have the skills the fix it myself so I personally would not buy it in its current condition

    I'm not in the market but I'm sure that is an awesome instrument. I'm curious what strings you have on it. Is it linear or real kiku with octave up A-D?

    FWIW, I'm pretty sure Devine and Griffin advocate Kasha only for linear tuning.
