View Full Version : Stupid string question

09-26-2010, 07:19 AM
I've been looking at strings but have been getting confused about how strings are classified. Things like low wound g strings and such. I just don't want to order something, get flush with anticipation then learn that I have to return it.

Can someone provide a link or tell me like a crash course for uke strings?

A fabulous resource is the Southcoast Guide To Tunings and Strings (http://www.southcoastukes.com/stringuide.htm). You can also check Uke Hunt (http://ukulelehunt.com/buy-ukulele/categories/ukulele-strings/) or Curt Sheller (http://www.curtsheller.com/ukulele/strings/index.php) and hopefully provide you with an answer.

Brilliant, exactly what I wanted. I've been a long time lurker, but have recently manned up and joined. Good to be posting.

Double posts be damned! Can I get an OK on these strings for a Makala KS?

They are on mine, and I love them- my wife prefers the tone of Worth clears though (on that particular Uke). The Worths might be a hair brighter

I guess you are a beginner in this aspect after all and the only thing that I would like you to understand is the fact that you should very well know how to manage music and lyrics at a similar rhythm and that is only possible if you know the basics. If you want to know the basics then the best thing that you could do is to for a tutorial session and learns how strings are classified!
