Thread: Ukulele strings

    Cool Ukulele strings

    I got some Aquila Nylgut strings for my uke. What I don't get is, my strings are for a concert ukulele and my ukulele is a soprano. would the strings be fine, or would I have to get soprano ukulele strings?

    Thanks,

    Aloha IBankai145,
    Look in the back of your Aquila package, it has the soprano area...is it checked... give them a call back and tell them they made a mistake...Welcome to the UU and our forums..Have fun and enjoy...Happy Strummings.. MM Stan

    Nope. They're concert ukulele strings. I was wondering if they would work on a soprano.

    Yes, your strings are fine. They will be a bit longer, that's all.

    Oh, okay. I thought that concert strings had a higher string tension or something. Guess not...

    A topic that often crops up.Personally,I use Aquila
    Concert strings on all of my sopranos,which being
    (mostly) laminates,gives the soundboard a bit of
    extra drive or vibration.Thus,louder if you want to
    play that way,and with more a responsive tonal range
    all across the spectrum.In my opinion....

    That's nice! So it's kind of like using heavier strings on a guitar. I've never thought of it that way...
