C  TUNING SETS

                                           All Ukulele String Sets have a minimum length of 30 inches.                                              This length allows any set to be used on any sized ukulele.
Our sets are not named “Soprano, Concert”, etc., but are called out by gauge (or more precisely, by “feel”).  This is because depending on your preference in tension, the same set could be used on different sized instruments.  You will notice, however, that if you were to see the same set listed as a Soprano C Tuning set and then again as a Concert C Tuning set, the description of the tension or feel will change.  And the sets we’ll list as “C Tuning” sets can be used for more than simply C tuning.  You will find the other tunings they can be used for in the Full Listings. C Tuning can take different forms.  The Ukulele has its own unique form of what is called “Reentrant tuning” (for more on musical language see our Terminology page).  The Ukulele Reentrant form in C tuning is written g’ c’ e’ a’ in standard notation and is often called “High G Tuning” by modern players.  In the C Tuning Lists we simply refer to those sets as “Ukulele Sets”.  Another popular modern form is called “Linear tuning”.  In C tuning a linear form is written g c’ e’ a’  in standard notation and is often called “Low G Tuning” by modern players.  In the C Tuning Lists these sets are called out as “Linear Sets”.    A third form, unique to us, is “Lili’u tuning”, a 4-string version of the traditional arrangement on a 6- string Ukulele.  In C tuning it’s written g’ c’ e’ a  in standard notation.  In other words, it’s like the Ukulele Reentrant form with the 1st string (in this case the “A” string) dropped an octave.  It’s used mainly for basic strumming and chord melody where players want the flavor of the reentrant sound but with a deeper tone.
