    Default LIVING WATER STRINGS - new range of uke strings

    I have just introduced a new range of fluorocarbon ukulele strings. This is my own brand. They are clear, very strong and are made from pure fluorocarbon. In my opinion they have a pure tone. They're called Living Water Strings.

    I am very pleased with them and have worked for a long time to get them on the market. I will, of course, be posting some more videos using them.

    At the moment there are 4 different sets: soprano, concert, tenor and baritone. All, including the baritone set, are for re-entrant (high 4th string) tuning.

    If you would like to find out more about them or get your hands on some, they are available from my website (see below) at introductory prices.

    Here are a couple of videos that I have already posted where I am using the new strings. There are several more on my YT channel.

    Just ordered a set for my Concert. Look forward to trying them out.

    If you are into sending out samples to dealers, I would recommend sending some to Xoan at http://ukecosas.es/es/ - He is the leading Uke dealer in Spain's burgeoning market. If he likes them he'll promote them on his website and use them in his gigs and Uke trade fairs etc. He's a great chap, but speaks little English. - Berni (Barbablanca)

    Thanks Berni. I know Choan quite well. He is a really nice guy.

    He is indeed. Like yourself he is trying to turn a passion into a business. Those are sentiments that I feel deserve all our support

    Do you know Choan from here? Or from trade fairs, or what? Does he already stock your strings?

    My strings are brand new. No, Choan is one of our (Ohana's) main dealers.

    Ah, OK. As a relative newcomer here, I was not aware of your Ohana connection.

    Like many locals, Choan may well be a closet English speaker, but as he knows I speak Catalan we normally converse in that tongue. Hmm, I haven't seen him for a wee while. This exchange of ours has given me "ganas" to see him again soon. Inspired by you, I might ask him to string me a baritone with re-entrant tuning... Argh! It's UAS all over again!

    Re-entrant tuning really brings a baritone to life. It enables you to do much more with it.
