10-25-2012, 08:30 AM
Hi UU'ers. I just received a 1950's TV-Pal Uke in the mail. It's a neat little instrument with some ooooold strings on it. I need suggestions for strings! I know Worth strings are pretty good, but they are more expensive than strings you can find on juststrings.com I am on a budget and would like to know the best string I can get for my TV-Pal that I can buy on juststrings.com. Thanks in advance!!!

I would try Aquila nylgut, Martin ( be sure you get fluorocarbon and NOT crystal nylon), or Worth. The reason Worth seem more expensive is there are two sets in a pack. I haven't looked at Juststrings for a while but I'm sure they carry those.

If you like colors check out Aurora. They use a formula from Aquila to make theirs.

I like D'Addario J65 nylon strings on old plastic ukes. Actually, I love them.
