Hey all, I just noticed a kind of metallic twang on the first and second fret of my A string on my soprano. It sounds fine open and from the third fret on down. Any advice? Thanks!

It's possible that the string it vibrating against the frets right afterwards. For example, when holding the second fret, it's also barely touching the third fret, causing the string to vibrate against it. Check it out and let us know.

I can't really say what the problem was. I got frustrated and unstrung and restrung the string, and after re-tuning it, the problem seems just about gone. I'm not really sure why that would work, but it seems to have. Thanks!

Good to hear, glad nothing was wrong with the ukulele itself, that's no fun!
