    Bytown Instruments' 100% Fluorocarbon Strings

    I have introduced my own line of 100% hi-tech clear fluorocarbon that gives a wonderfully vibrant, crystal-clear tone to your ukulele.

    I have put them together as Single Sets (24" for Soprano and Concert, 28" for Tenor & 30" for Baritone), Double Sets (46" for Soprano and Concert, 54" for Tenor & 58" for Baritone) or if you wish to customize your own set, I also sell the different gauges by the inch.

    One of the not-so-secret secrets about the ukulele is that some of the best strings are made from fishing line. It's true. There are a vast number of ukulele string producers out there and most have their strings made in Japan by companies that produce fluorocarbon angling leader. When you give it a little thought, companies that make fine fishing line already have the machines to produce string.

    Seaguar is the producer of the finest fluorocarbon leader for fishing. This line is made in two layers and referred to as DSF, Double-Structure Fluorocarbon. The inner layer is hard, while the outer layer is soft. As uke strings, this allows the strings to stay in tune, be resistant to abrasion so they last a long time, while being easy on the fingers. For over a year now, Sue has had a set of Seaguars on one of her ukes that she uses every day. They show minimum signs of wear and are still bright and keep in tune.
