    Ditch all your effects and pedals for troubleshooting. There could be any number of things working against you with a big chain like that.

    The A and E are similar to Worth CH. The C and low-G are significantly heavier (see my video above).

    I think I saw that the calculator is not working right for strings and that they credit back the difference. Might be worth an email to them.

    I was trying out the heavy tension. But I ended up frankensteining it a bit with the low-tension C and switching to my standard Savarez KF95 low-G. This configuration is very similar to the Worth...

    Joel sent me some to try out. He had recipes for a normal tension and high tension set with both wound/unwound variants. I imagine he's collecting feedback and will be adding more sets as he goes....

    Or something. It's written by some Sean guy. I'm mostly wondering how Dom is involved. Somehow I can't see him putting something like this on his site: https://www.beginnerukuleles.com/pink-ukulele/.

    Dominator Uke Tabs Moved?

    Cleaning up some links on my site and noticed that Dom's epic tab resource is now redirecting to beginnerukulele.com. Can't imagine Dominic is involved with an operation with such thin content.

    Generally, you should have a similar distance between string and edge of fretboard on the two outside strings.

    Pictures would probably get you a faster yes/no answer on your particular instrument.

    As much as possible because it's the most interesting and important aspect of digging into the details of playing, to me. But it's also incredibly subjective which makes it hard to really nail down...

    Fretting is really important, but in my opinion - buzzes excluded, your right hand usually has way more to do with the tone of what you play.

    Most people just go for a "if it's not broke, don't...

    The only thing "wrong" might be that the break angle would change for the worse and make the strings more likely to jam in the nut slots. Doesn't look like it makes much of a difference on your uke.

    Try Worth clear strings. They have higher tension options than the browns. You're probably looking for the CD set.
