Hi, Guys, I just got my electric UKE. This indeed has cheap strings on it and it shows, the electrics in it sound good not alot of hiss or anything.

How are Martin UKE Strings? Also I would got pretty soft fingers I guess, So what Gauge should I get for this ? :)

Your fingers should build up callouses (toughen the finger tips) as you play more.

If you find the strings are too stiff for your liking then consider something like Worth Lights. These are fluoro-carbon strings that have a little more flex to them than their "Medium" strings and are a bit softer on the fingers.
