    Don, the uke came with these strings. Not sure I like them. They sound OK but they are all wound strings and are kinda stiff and noisy. Tough to press down at the first fret while playing an open F chord. I will probably change them out at some point and try something else. Any suggestions?

    How do you like those strings? I think they work really well on the bari.
    Thanks! Nice to talk with another Mainland owner. The jury is still out on these strings. Like I said in a previous post they seem to be stiff and noisy and tough to press down in the first fret while making an open F. They do sound nice but 4 wound strings was not what I was expecting. How do you like them and have you tried any thing else?

    So do I. Classic and Classy I would say. The fit and finish on this one seems really nice.

    I love baritones so a big congratulations on your new baby. Those are Guadalupe strings and I didn't care for them either, very, very different then your standard type baritone strings. You asked about string suggestions, Martin M630 have wound D& G and florocarbon B & E and are a great place to start. They won't break the bank either.
    Currently enjoying these ukuleles : *LdfM tenor, *LfdM 19" super tenor. *LfdM baritone, *I'iwi tenor , *Koolau tenor, *Webber tenor, *Kimo tenor, *Kimo super concert, *Mya Moe baritone, *Kamaka baritone, *Gianinni baritone, *Fred Shields walnut pineapple super soprano, *Kala super soprano, *Loprinzi super soprano, *Black bear ULO concert , *Enya X1 concert, *Enya X1 pineapple soprano, *Enya Nova *Gretsch tenor, *Korala plastic concert
