Living Water Ukulele Strings

Made from 100% clear fluorocarbon

Manufactured from hi-tech fluorocarbon, these strings give a wonderfully vibrant, crystal-clear tone to your ukulele. They are made to exacting standards, with a complex polymer structure that is formulated to give both strength and flexibility, whilst maintaining an excellent resistance to abrasion. In other words, they don't break easily, they vibrate well and last a long time.


They are actually made in England.


































































Living Water Ukulele Strings are available for all four sizes of ukulele: soprano, concert, tenor and baritone.


Although designed primarily for C6 (soprano, concert and tenor) or G6 tuning (baritone), they could equally well be tuned up a full step to D6 or A6 tuning. The tension will, of course, be a little higher if this is done.

All four sizes are already available for high 4th string (re-entrant) tuning.

Tenor Low G and Concert Low G sets available.

The 4th string in these new low G sets is also made entirely from pure fluorocarbon. It is not a wound string. I believe that many players, myself included, do not care for the sound that a wound string produces.

A 5 String Tenor set is available to buy from this website.

You can now purchase a Linear Baritone set (low D). As with all the other strings I produce, this will have no wound strings. Only fluorocarbon strings are included.
