    I’m been playing guitar (badly) for years and also a bit of mandolin.
    I want to see how I get on with a ukelele setup but I don’t want to buy a cheapo one that won’t stay in tune and I don’t want to splash out on a decent one (yet) until I’ve dabbled.

    I have a mandola sitting gathering dust; it’s not really built to handle 8 metal strings but it is of solid wood construction with a bright sound.
    The scale length sits roughly between a concert uke and a tenor uke (16 inches/40-ish cm).

    Will a concert set take the extra tension? Will a tenor set sound too “floppy”?
    I don’t mind mix-and-match, but ideally I need ball-end strings because they attach at the tail-piece.

    I would really appreciate some help, and I apologise if what I am attempting to do seems sacrilegious to
    hardened ukulele folk!
