I really want to get a strap for my kala tenor but I don't know how I can do it because I don't have an input and there is nothing i can attach it too on that side of the uke. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

You have a few options-

You can buy strap pegs that screw in to your uke.

You can get a lanyard style strap that hooks into your sound hole.

I have heard that a suction cup will work.

hmm if I screwed a peg in would it change the sound of my uke at all? I might try that suction cup idea.

I've installed strap buttons on two of my ukuleles with no problems or sound changes, if you can use a hand drill and have the right size drill bit, it's quite straight forward, here's a link which shows you step by step. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2yitWBv19 Hope this helps

It says it's a malformed video?
