    I have a 19" tenor and use Thomastik CF30 and CF27 for the wound G and C strings. I use Oais warm for the two trebles. Yes the tension is higher then a 17" tenor, more so on the florocarbon strings then the wounds. I don't mind high tension, if you do try a concert set of strings with either Thomastik CF30 or Fremont Soloist for the wound G if you like only a wound G.

    Thanks Dave - I've actually been using a CF30 as the G on it and I have an unused CF27 knocking about so I'll give it a go. Really enjoying the scale length, will be glad when I've dialled in the strings and tuning.

    I’m curious whether it’s strong enough to handle all metal strings.

    I would think that if check with Kevin from Kinnard, he'd be able to answer that for you.

    I’m sure. But at that price point it’s just a curiosity for now and I’m sure he has more important things to do than answer my questions. Maybe if I’m in a position to get one myself later on.

    The answer to this question will most likely be no, as with most instruments specifically built for nylon strings. I don't think they would advise you to take that risk on an instrument in this price range.
