    I agree! I don't use straps on any of mine, but don't notice much if any difference in holding them. Smudges do show a bit more on gloss but it just reminds me to wipe them down. I really prefer the...

    I waver back and forth between tenor and concert, but today I'm favoring the concert. Although I have at least one of each size I find about 90% of my time is spent with my concerts or tenors.

    I use concert strings on several of my sopranos and have never had any problem, definately help the sound of some. The Pro Arte are a bit thicker than some but should be fine on a modern uke.

    I have to agree.
    It depends on the uke, some sound and/or feel better with wound, some with unwound. I happen to like the feel of wound strings, may be from also playing guitar and mandolin.
