Topic: Baritone Uke Strings
I'm getting frustrated with my strings.
I use Aquila strings and they sound great on my uke but the G string brakes much faster then any other string.
It always breaks right over the 2nd fret. I realize that fret gets played a lot in strumming chords but I find it is a real pain to constantly change strings especially on uke because they need to stretch a lot.
I tune like this:
I think that is standard for a baritone uke.
G string breaks after about 20-30 hours of strumming. (really rough estimate)
Anyone else have this problem with Aquila strings?
Any suggestions on other brands of strings?
Am I expecting too much out of my strings? I'm a Bass player by birth and don't change bass strings very often at all.
