    I bought a Koa Romero creation tiny tenor uke on this forum. I really lucked out and have a beautiful perfect condition uke for a used price. It came strung with a low G set of La Bella strings.

    Changed strings can no longer play Bb ??

    For at least 8 weeks I've been playing a clean Bb not in a song but with Uncle Rods chords. I got a new set of Daniel Ho strings and I simply cannot get the E string to ring clearly. Did I do something wrong when I changed strings? Thank you

    From tenor to concert?

    I started with a Kala SMLT tenor which I love. My partner has begun learning and he also loves my tenor so I have been using my granddaughters Makala Dolphin.

    Changed my strings! Yeah

    I changed my strings for the first time after much trepidation, it took me longer to tune it than to change the strings. No one around this house seems to realize what an accomplishment this is for me. Wanted to thank Aldrinne for the super video!!
