    Early on I bought a set of ukulele strings in a music store that said on the package, "Soparano/Concert". I believe they were GHS strings, and it was back when GHS was a naughty word.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    When I first saw this thread that was my thought too. I know the Martin M600s are labeled "Soprano/Concert" as well. To my knowledge, many string sets are.
    Main players:

    Soprano: WC Ukuleles

    Concert: Collings UC2 | Collings UC2K | Talsma Style 3 | Ono Pineapple

    Tenor: Collings UT2 | Collings UT3SMB

    Baritone: LoPrinzi


    Others to be re-homed: Kepasa Madera koa| Kiwaya KS-1 | 16" Koa Ono | Blackbird Farallon

    FYI:

    - Thinner strings = more sustain = less tension = less volume = brighter tone

    - Thicker strings = less sustain = more tension = more volume = warmer tone

    No worries Uncle Rod. I am happy to help.

    This info is on the page linked in my forum signature, along with other often requested info, so I do not have to retype them over again, but sometimes folks dont care to click the link and see, so I copied/pasted directly to the thread.
