Hello! Has anyone tried to tune the first string (A) to a higher B? I have tried and the string broke… Do you know why? Could It Be the uke (lanikai), or maybe the string itself (I was thinking of getting metal ones)
I know some people (including Tobias Elof) tune their ukes to ADFB, so yes, it is possible. From what I understand it is easier on sopranos, which have naturally lower string tension. I wouldn’t want to try it on a tenor.
