    Default Baritone String recommendation

    I recently completed a tenor and used a mixed set of strings, Thomastik-infeld wound for the G and C, and alliance saverez for E and A.

    Any recommendations for something similar for a baritone?

    Thanks

    You can do the same. T-I CF35 and CF30 will give you D and G, then I'd recommend Living Water for the B and E. But you could use any 3 and 2 strings from a classical guitar set, so if you like the Savarez, you can try those.

    I would recommend Uke Logic baritone strings from The Ukulele Site. Resonant and very nicely balanced, and to me they sound a lot like my tenor wound Thomastik-Infeld and fluorocarbon Frankenstrings.

    Baritone string up this weekend with strings as advised. I'm delighted.

    Thanks again again.
