Hi, all.

I had my tenor ukulele restrung approximately two weeks ago, by somebody who'd never restrung one before. I've not noticed any issues, but wondered what the damage would be, as I now realise he was stretching the strings exactly as you would guitar strings, rather than using the gentler (potentially more advisable) method suggested by Gordon Mayer.

Any thoughts?

I wouldn't expect problems at all. If it's okay now, it should be fine. As for the gentler method, people have been pulling up on their ukulele strings for a hundred years. If the bridge is still there, you're in great shape.
