Hi,
I've only been playing for the last six moths, and I think it's time to buy new strings. Everyplace I've called only seem to carry Martin strings for D tuning. Can I use these for playing in C?

Hi,
Most ukes you buy in a store are set up with rather cheap strings.
Better strings will make your uke sound a lot better.
In my opinion Aquila sound and play the best.
You can order them online at a lot of internet musicstores.
c or D-tuning doesn't matter. Just make shure tou buy the right strings for your type of uke. Soprano, concert or tenor.
Good luck, Sinus.

Aquila and Worth are probably two of the most popular strings sets on UU. There are also sets from D'Addario Pro Arte, Freemont, Ko'olau Gold & Hilo. A number of members are using guitar sets from Savarez, D'Addario & Guadalupe. You can order strings from online sources such as Elderly, Ukulele World, MGM, Just Strings, etc.
