Thread: String gauges for concert ukulele GDAE tuning

    Default String gauges for concert ukulele GDAE tuning

    I've recently bought a GDAE Aquilla set for my concert uke, and the E string is really tight, and keeps breaking.
    Another retailer has said that they probably could supply me with individual strings, to replace the E strings, but would need the gauge.
    Does anyone know of the gauges for this particular set of strings, Aquilla nygut?

    I have a Bushman Concert uke that I have been using Aquilla strings on for a few years. I never had the problem that you had. Check to see if you haven't reversed the G&E strings. If it is strung with a high g string, The G string is smaller than the E.

    I used 3 from Martin's Baritone Uke set, the E i got from the soprano set's

    The low 3 are actually about the same gage, but are physically different
    wound 1 with silvered copper, 1 with aluminum, and the other clear nylon..
