    I have tried both. I like living water better for the a,e and c strings(FC). The living water low G is probably one of the best FC Low G I have used. Oasis low G is a wound string, so it really depends on personal preference of wound vs unwound.
    A day without playing a uke is a day not well lived.

    I like them both, and would be hard pressed to tell any difference.
    I like the oasis wound low G, as well as the Fremont.

    Yep, like 'em both. Living waters for hi 4th string; Oasis for low G string. Oasis is great for 1&2 string with Thomasic-Infeld 3&4 (Cf30, Cf27).

    You won't know which you prefer till you try them both on the same ukulele.

    That said, I always seem to LOVE Living Waters strings.

    I find Living Waters very warm and mellow. The Oasis Warms are to me anyway, a bit brighter. I'm not a fan of the Oasis wound low g...………...prefer the Fremont or the T-I...….smoother/less squeak.

    This exactly. I will say I like the Oasis SW low G, smooth wound bronze. Espiecally the warm .033", warmer sound than Fremont.

    Brenda has a second LfdM that she had strung reentrant with Oasis warm. It was still too bright for her taste so we put on Living Water, bingo, warmed it up to where she was wanted it to be.
    Ukuleles.............yes please !!!!

    Never tried Oasis, but I don't like wound strings, so that would count them out as far as I'm concerned, but I do like Living Water Low G concert strings, I use them on nearly all my ukes, tenor, long neck concert, concert, & long neck soprano.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    Keith, I'm like you re: wound strings.
    I have a Living Water low G on my tenor. It's really nice with decent tension.
    The bari I once owned had a Worth clear D and it was pretty intolerable. Way too fat and floppy.

    I'd give Living Waters a shot.
