    Thumbs up FS: Southcoast Strings, Multiple Sets, Reentrant

    Hey folks,

    As a tribute to Dirk and to help Sheldra close out his estate, I have agreed to take on a chunk of the remaining string inventory and offer it up for sale as individual sets. What I have are all reentrant, "no wound" sets, as follows:

    Extra Light Gauge XLU (6 available: 0 pending, 4 sold)
    Light Gauge LU (2 available, 0 pending, 2 sold)

    Linear sets also now available!(see here for details)

    Sheldra had to remove a lot of the pages from the Southcoast web site to prevent new orders from coming in, but I was able to find the description page at the Wayback Machine here:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20180401...:80/uku-nw.htm

    (I was also able to retrieve many of the charts for keys, scales, and tensions, but I understand many folks find them to be confusing. I will do a follow-up post below with recommended uses for each of the sets. Or if you have a specific uke in mind, I'll be happy to sort through that with you.)

    The most recent retail prices ranged from $10.90 to $12.50. In order to keep this simple, I am offering these for $12 per set, regardless of gauge. First class US shipping will be a flat rate of $3 for 1-5 sets. 6 or more sets will be $7 for priority

    NEW: Free shipping offer: any domestic order of 2 or more sets that contains at least one Extra Light will ship free for the entire order

    For international orders, shipping will be at cost, so that may take some extra time to figure out. (As an example, first class to Australia is about $14, priority $35.)

    Preferred payment will be through PayPal. If you want to do something else, send me a note and we can discuss it.

    I have set up an email account specifically for this project:
    stringsales@justemail.net

    Please send orders, questions, or comments to that address.

    Initial orders will go out this Saturday. After that, shipments should go out several times a week so domestic orders should take a week or less from order to delivery.

    Thanks!
    Jim

    P.s. Full disclosure: my cost was not quite full retail, but my intent was not to hoard up these strings, but to get them out to the ukulele community. Best case, if all the sets get sold, I earn a few "free" sets for my own use.

    These are all gone:
    Medium Gauge MU-NW (0 : 12 sold)
    Soft Light Medium Gauge SLMU-NW (0 : 10 sold)
    Soft Medium Gauge SMU-NW (0 : 5 sold)
    Light Heavy Gauge LHU-NW (0 : 2 sold)
    Heavy gauge ukulele set HU-NW (0 : 5sold)

    Default Recommended Uses

    I was able to recover Dirk's original charts from the Wayback Machine, but rather than repost those and try to explain them, what I'll do here is list the recommended key for a medium-tension setup for each uke size along with any recommended higher or lower tension options.

    If this is still confusing, just send me an email of what you want to do, and I'll help you sort it out.

    Extra Light
    Sopranino - G (F, F#)
    Soprano - F (Eb, E, F#, G)
    Concert - Eb (E, F)
    Tenor - (Eb, i.e. already higher tension)

    Light
    Soprano - Eb
    Concert - D (C, C#, Eb)
    Tenor - D (C, C#)

    Soft Light Medium
    Soprano - (D, i.e. already lower tension)
    Concert - D (C, C#)
    Tenor - C (Bb, B, C#, D)
    Baritone - B (Bb, C)

    Medium & Soft Medium
    Soprano - D (C, C#)
    Concert - C (Bb, B, C#, D)
    Tenor - Bb (A, B, C)
    Baritone - Bb (A, B, C) - not a misprint, slightly higher tension than tenor

    Light Heavy
    Concert - Bb
    Tenor - A (G, G#, Bb)
    Baritone - G (G#, A)

    Heavy
    Tenor - A (G, G#)
    Baritone - G (G#, A)

    Ono #42 19" baritone, Ab, LW
    Imua iET-Bb, M600

    almost 24 hours listed and 23 sets sold. Thanks folks!

    Still 9 sets of the versatile Soft Light Mediums (C tuning for concert, tenor, or baritone - among other uses) and 2 sets of Heavy (G tuning for tenor or baritone)

    After that, we'll have to start getting creative for the Lights and Extra Lights.

    And I would love to buy some linear sets, but cannot take on the resale task myself right now.

    Let me know if anyone does.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, but not for normal C tuning. The SLM will give you a low tension D tuning - a whole step higher than "normal". The Light will give you a medium tension Eb. The Extra Light will give you the even higher F or G tuning.
