    Default Low-G Recommendations

    A friend is looking for recommendations for a low-G string. I suggested the Freemont Soloist, but I didn't know a non-wound string to suggest. I'm not sure what uke this would be going on.

    So, what's a good non-metal low-G string?

    I have been told Living Waters is a good choice

    He could always try Seaguar Blue fishing line, 90 lb test for low G. He'd have plenty left to share. I've never tried it myself, but would like to. Anyone have a spool and would share a couple of strings off it?

    I use Living Waters Low-G on several of my tenors. UkeRepublic sells single Plain Low-G LW Strings.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you donít begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Aquila Red has a terrific low-G string (they are sold both as singles or as part of a low-G set)

    There have been 10s and 10s of threads on this: https://www.google.com/search?q=site...d+low+g+string

    A Google search with "site:ukuleleunderground.com" will help you find things much better than the UU search bar.

    Thanks. I've found the UU Search to be useless.

    My first low G was an Aquila Red, had them on a couple of ukes, but I now use Living Water fluorocarbons on nearly all mine.

    Agreed, love the tone. Wound G strings, but pretty durable.
