I don't know how to explain it but the replacement uke I received from Kala has an odd sound to the C-string. It's flat and bassy but does not buzz.

Any help is great. Thanks.

Is it a Wound string?

I can't tell you what might be up with your uke, but I can tell you that "C-String - Flat and Bassy!" would make one heckuva vaudeville tune. I'm singing it in my head already :)

I don't think so. It's the stock ones that came on it. The first one I ordered didnt sound like this.

I just took it to a luthier to have it set up and that helped a little.
