    Huh, had never heard of that. I presume you mean this:

    They say they work for "parlor guitar" so I dunno. Maybe they'd fit on a large baritone?...

    I second this. Send an email to Pete/Shelley and they should get you sorted pretty quickly.

    Another suggestion would be to try some thinner strings. You didn't mention the scale. If it's concert,...

    What strings are you using? And what strings did it come with? If the ones you have on now are thicker, you may very well need to widen and or deepen the slot. My Bonanzalele (that I sold and bought...

    Classical guitar set gives GCFBbDG on 6 string baritone so if you used the 6th, 5th, 3rd, and 2nd that should give you GDAE starting at G2

    Sounds like you have a low G string which should be tuned to G3. I have tried to tune a string an octave too high more than once :rolleyes:

    It's all in the strings so I'm not sure why it "wouldn't work" unless it was an oddity with a particular instrument like ripock suggested.

    No, I don't think that's possible to use flouro or nylon for A2 and D3 which would be the normal linear tuning pitches. But an all unwound tuning is possible if you're willing to go up an octave on...

    Which makes no sense if the aim is a consistent tension across the sizes. That tells me their aim was a really high tension on the tenor - which to be fair, is a goal of some tenor players to get the...

    That's what I loved so much about Southcoast's approach (R.I.P. Dirk) - the tension and tuning charts for each string set so you could get really specific in your preference. And the charts never...

    As others have said, it depends on the string. I was talking with Ken Middleton about his "low tension" tenor set but he talked me out of it in favor of the standard set. I don't find the tension of...

    Fortunately for me, I have a strong preference for 19" scale over 20" scale and most baris including this one are the 20" size.

    Note that there is a Mini (what you're buying) and a Mini II. The Mini II is a very different beast at almost 23" scale so that probably qualifies it as 1/2 size.

    They will, but you'll need a higher tension version. A normal tension set will generally feel best up around G tuning. If you stop at E, they are likely to feel loose and sound kinda dead. You'll...

    Well, to start, baritone uke almost always refers to a 4-course instrument, so a 5 or 6 string baritone uke will have 1 or 2 doubled strings.

    Guitalele is more commonly used to refer to a 17"...
