    Agree. I play baritones exclusively, most often using Southcoast strings. I'm pleased with 3 months of string life. Lots of pros (not saying I belong to that group) change strings daily.

    I own, or have owned all of the baritones mentioned above (and a few others). IMHO, the Pono mahogany, new at under $500, can't be beat. Going to one of the K brands or MyaMoe will be more than you...
