    Default Living Waters

    I just wanted to put this out there that Living Waters makes amazing strings!!! I recently ordered a set of custom tenor strings (dGBE) and soprano strings and they are great. Wonderful intonation and very harmonious!!!!

    They're very good strings. I use them all the time on one of my ukes. My other uke is still trying to decide which strings it likes best but it may well end up with LWs as well.
    And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
    And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
    Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
    As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.

    Let me clarify...are the tenor and soprano dGBE, or just the tenor?

    It makes me wonder how a tenor sounds tuned down a fourth. I know there is a fellow on YouTube that has been experimenting with low tuning on a Aklot tenor.
    Playing ukulele since January 2016.

    Have you participated in the thread, "How the Ukulele Found You?" If not, please consider adding your story--they are just fun to read.

    Yep, got them on all my good ukes, I use the concert low G sets on both tenor & concert scales.

    @Choirguy
    Whilst not using LW strings, having a tenor tuned DGBE has to be tried, they sound very close to a bari, (I also tried it on a concert, turned out quite nice).
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    LW are my first choice strings followed by Worth Clear.

    Excellent strings but also the fact that Ken Middleton will produce custom sets at a reasonable price. When I wanted to restring my 6 string he provided the combination I wanted and even included a double length high C string as they are very fine. I was also impressed by his prompt service.

    A winning combination. Quality strings and quality service.

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    I'll echo that - Ken is great to deal with. I've bought odd strings from him as I've constructed Frankenstring sets in the past and he's always been really accommodating.

    The only place I can find LW strings here in US is Uke republic, but the choices of LW strings are limited? Any one knows where else in US I can find LW strings?

    I have 2 of mine strung with LW and love the sounds, would like to experiment more with different tunings.
