    I apologize for getting off topic. I've enjoyed playing my new electric 5 string so much that I was determined to get all of my instruments in 5ths tuning.

    Yes we drifted a bit off topic.

    For me baritone ukes CGDA in nylon or steel works well.

    Any nylon string will do I would think.

    Question Re: Pros/Cons - 4 vs. 8 strings

    I could add a soundboard pickup to my 4 string wooden soundboard Rescued/Modified banjo uke With Aquilla 1m Non metal mandolin strings..
    13.75"/35cm scale .. I only bring them up to E,B,F#,C#.. the 4th string could be higher tension but the C# is abought as tight as I dare...
