Ask him for the Brad Bordessa set. ;-) He's willing to create custom configurations to get you just what you need.
    Interesting. Can I ask, what configuration is the "Brad Bordessa" set, and what size/scale do you use it for?

    Yes, I’m also interested in the signature combo you created, Brad.

    I’m looking for a tenor set that will highlight the koa tones of the Maui Music uke I recently purchased here on UU.
    Klos Tenor (carbon fibre)
    KoAloha Tenor (mango)
    Maui Music Tenor (koa)
    Lone Tree Tenor (driftwood red cedar, black cherry, western maple)
    Kamaka Long Neck Soprano Pineapple (koa)

    Well I haven't contacted Joel yet, but I thought I would ask him for a set of 0.019, 0.025, 0.028, and 0.036, with the 28 being from the hard set.

    From what we've seen posted here, the Worth Clear CL/CL-LG Light set is 0.0185, 0.026, 0.029, and 0.358, so I should certainly try those as well.

    Pretty sure it's .036/.032/.028/.023" - for low-GCEA tenor. So basically the low-end from his "soft" set and the high-end from his "hard" set. All unwound, but I do use a Savarez KF95 for the low-G. Joel didn't have any gauges at the time I liked for the G. I made a video on my reasoning for the C-string adjustment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjE8gmXdlYE&t=5s for the nerdy among you.

    I really need to get in touch with him again and find out if he's made any changes. I know he was trying to get as much feedback as possible about them and implement it. I hate to be giving out incorrect advice, though it looks like the gauges are the same on the Etsy.

    Thanks for these suggestions!

    I just put some Uke Logic soft tension strings on a new-to-me Pono RTSH tenor and really like the sound. The uke is a little quieter compared to the Living Waters strings I tried shortly before them. Though I like the tone better for this uke.

    I tried most brands out there, but once I found UKE LOGIC, I've never looked back ! They are hands down, the best Uke strings FOR ME and my instruments. Depending on the UKE, some 'like' soft tension while others 'like' the hard tension set.

    If you've never.... at least try a set ? A tad pricey, but worth every cent IMO.
