    Living Water makes a set. You can also use the top 4 strings of a classical guitar set. You may have to experiment to find a tension you like. Personally I think standard tension sets work best a...

    True, changing the bridge spacing would be much harder and not worth it. I have tried the Gretsch and Yamaha at a Guitar Center and Sam Ash a while back but not back-to-back. I don't recall the...

    You should also be able to get a new nut made for your GL1 with the string spacing you want. That should be relatively inexpensive to have done

    They definitely vary. If you want something wider, there are some models that claim a 50mm nut like the Koaloha Opio. Also some baritone scale like Cordoba Mini and Islander GL6.

    Curious to hear what that sounds like. My guess is it'll be warmer than expected from the maple.

    Haha! Well, I had my kids when I was 12, so there's that. :rofl: :rolleyes:



    I had never seen it in person either. And it was surprisingly not that expensive, considering.

    You might want to watch the video first as it explains a lot about this uke probably better than I can put into writing here. I contacted David Hanson aka Cripple Creek Mandolins back in June to see...

    If you're going for dGBE, your plan is sound except for that 4th string. To get it down to 'd' from 'a' it would be very floppy. Tuning a low G up to D isn't likely to work either and would be quite...

    Can't help with the daddario selection, but you are correct about first four classical (normal tension) giving you a normal tension GCEA for tenor uke.

    For concert, I'd say it is not common to use...

    Oh wait, you used a 4th string. There's the problem. A classical 4th string should be your low G string for tenor uke. :eek:

    You want to use a 3rd string. This would be the one for the EJ45LP set:...

    Strange. I'm not sure how Worth gets their higher tension. It's also possible they have a different formulation instead of just thicker strings. (*shrug*)

    Anyway, sounds like you just need to try...

    Maybe it just seems higher tension because of the 5 strings instead of 4?
