    Default Baritone Uku with High D??

    I was watching Baritone Scale tutorial and the First D String on their D string sounds SO much DEEPER than mine and the string on their D appeared to be Metal, All my strings on my baritone are Nylon strings, Is my Baritone Stringed WRONG??

    Bari is normally strung with a low D, the D and G strings being wound. I swapped mine out for unwound, and with a high D

    Some baritone ukes do/did come with re entrant tuning, (I have one, a Lani spruce top), & I keep it that way, as my other bari is a Kala cedar top that has Living Water low D strings on it.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    When I bought my Brunswick bari it was tuned GCEA reentrant!
