    The 40LB .022" (.570mm) Pink compared to the 40LB .022" (.570mm) STS? I find the Pink is more mellow or dark in timbre and oh so slightly lower in tension. I'm guessing the STS might be slightly more...

    I tried Seaguar Blue first and, while it has many more gauges available, I didn't care for the sound—somewhat bright—and the textured feel. Plus they were prone to shredding, especially at pressure...

    Yes, STS Salmon is very promising. That first string really sings. I'll have to snag a roll of 50LB for 2nd string trials.

    Yes, it is a "real" 'ukulele retailer with instruments for sale, albeit mostly luthier made and vintage (so bring your fattest credit card). Last time I checked, showings were by appointment only.

    Seaguar STS Salmon fluorocarbon

    I've always used custom string sets on my guitars and ukuleles and seem to be getting increasingly picky as I get older. I've been experimenting with Seaguar fluorocarbon for the past year or...

    Methinks the Hawaiian Culture Center swings strongly towards well-heeled Japanese "cultural" tourists. You might try hitting up some of the teachers listed individually as they're all freelancers.

    Nylon strings—the trebles—are larger in diameter than the equivalent steel strings. However, if you prefer a thinner string on a classical guitar, use a light gauge fluorocarbon. They sound great and...

    They're made in Indonesia now rather than Southeast Asia (Vietnam)? Breaking in new workers must take a lot of training and time!

    Thanks! Yes, it is almost impossible to get other musicians to play my pieces. But these students choose my piece for the project so I was happy I got to hear someone play besides me!
