Hey everybody, I am building a concert scale pot lid reso uke,with a piezo pickup. My string ends will show thru the tail piece. So ball end strings may be the ticket. Can anyone recommend steel wrapped nylon strings that will tune like a uke? Also, string gauges that will tune like a uke. I intend to play like a uke but may set it up for slide playing. All ya'lls thoughts are welcomed. jh
For a cbg ukulele with a 15' scale I just used D'Addario's high carbon steel custom singles:
g .012 / c .016 / e .013 / a .011
for a total string length from ball end to tuners of 22' and 23'.
