    Default Living Waters strings, WOW!!

    I changed out my baritone strings last night on my Kala.
    Said I was going to keep the Aquila supernyguts on because they sounded good, and I couldn't imagine better, but...
    Those Living Waters are tremendous!

    Did you go linear (low d) or reentrant (high d) ?

    Yes, Ken has done a really nice job with these. They really ring beautifully.

    I went with the standard low d tuning.
    What strike's me most is the evenness of timbre across all of the strings.
    I can also strum pretty vigorously without any buzz.
    Naturally, since I favor Flouro carbon, I love the feel.
    Ken has a winner in these, for sure. It makes me want to try a set on my concert Magic Fluke.

    +1 for Living Water strings. I have a Low-G set on my Kamaka Tenor, and they make it sound like a harp in Heaven!

    I just put a set on my Koaloha KSM-00 soprano — Very nice results. I’m thinking of trying a set on my Pono mango baritone and a low G set on my Collings Tenor.

    Funny, I ordered a set yesterday for my maple Brueko from Uke Republic. I have them on my sapele Opio and love them.

    I have them on nearly all my ukes, (& that's quite a few ), I use concert scale low G on both tenor & concert scales, & have them on my cedar top bari too.

    I have a set of Living Water low G on my Kamaka baritone. I am extremely happy with the results. I have the Living Water's on some of my other ukulele's as well and the sound is equally pleasing.
