    Default How To Turn A Tenor Ukulele Into A Baby Baritone

    I finally received my strings and got them installed on my tenor uke. Check out this video to hear the results.

    Wow! That's really a nice concept. I've just got to convert a couple of my Tenors to that DGBE setup. I don't know about doing it right now though. Most of my instruments are in storage while a new house is being built. I think I'll wait on this until I'm settled in my new digs. But, I'm definitely going to do it. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

    I liked mine when I tuned it to DGBE too - in fact it might still be, I haven't played it lately, just my long neck concert...

    When tuned to a baritone's D3 G3 B3 E4 , a tenor's body is simply too small to provide the resonance needed for sound purity of the low notes. It's like souping up a Yugo. Blah Meh Yuck .

    Now, if you take a baritone body, give it a tenor-scaled neck, and tune it G3 C4 E4 A4 ------ well, NOW you're talking!!!
