    Uke Bass/U-Bass - Round Wound vs Rubber strings???

    Round Wound Strings have more Boom to them & they're also thinner. What I did rather cleverly here was rather than replace the nut, I simply filled it (w/ bone dust & superglue) & recut it.

    Need some help with Stossel Lute

    The 9 String Stossel Lute Tuning is C3, Eb3, G3, Bb3, D4, F4, A4, C5, E5. So strings, 1, 3, 5, 7, & 9 are the same as a 5 string Violin, & then you have another set of 5ths that are a minor third above a Viola.

    Strings Recommendation on strings for a concert resonator uke wanted

    I think the sharp edges in the bridge & nut need to be cleared 1st. You need to make sure the bridge & nut are lubricated w/ pencil graphite to help them slide more smoothly.

    Use & implication of low-g on soprano?

    The top 4 strings from a Classical String set might make a good Low G Ukulele string set (Ernie Ball Low G Ukulele strings). The Wound Low G Ukulele string should easily fit in the 4th string slot w/o any issues.
