    Hey Scott, I was going to suggest just that, play it exclusively. If I am switching between different nut widths it can cause sloppy playing. If I stick to one size it smooths out. About 95% of my...

    Martin M630 have 2 wounds and a nice bright sound. D’Addario Titanium have 2 wounds and are warmer sounding. I have had good luck with both those sets and they are readily available.

    A RH of 45% is just about perfect. A stable 40% or even 35% is ok as well, big swings and lows of below 30% is what can cause damage. Feel free to keep those ukuleles out. I keep all solid wood...

    17” scale, which is standard tenor length is really designed for A-A tuning so that is not your problem. The lower tension of E-E tuning on a 17” can cause buzzing.

    Jim has asked all the good and important question. One more is it 17” or 20” scale, is it tuned A-A or E-E. A 17” scale tuned E-E will have very low string tension and they could buzz if strummed...

    All of my instruments have two buttons and they all sit high on my abdomen. Strap length is adjustable you know........so no need to have it at groin area if you don’t want to.

    Trying to decide which one to buy if you have never played them is like deciding if you like beef or pork better but have never eaten them.

    If you really do want it bad enough you can adapt. I know where you are coming from.......a guitar to soprano is a big difference. But it just takes time, patience and practice to adapt.

    As Dohle said above anytime you increase diameter you increase tension. Soprano are the smallest diameter, then concert then tenor. Baritone are thicker still but they are tuned down to DGBE so must...
