    Hello brothers and sisters. I haven't posted here in some time. I've been pretty sick and it's something I'm not likely to recover from. I've about come to the end of my ability to play my ukuleles...

    In the early days of restringing I always thought the A string was going to snap because it seemed so tight compared to the others. But it never did.

    I'd like to address some of that. Yes I was guilty of not complaining to the seller on the cosmetic issues as I didn't feel it was worth it at the time. I don't usually feel bad about small flaws...

    That's usually my take also and the cosmetic issues were not stated in the description of the condition. For that the seller is responsible. The rest may just be a difference of opinion.

    True. I talked my friend into it and when it arrived I talked myself into thinking it sounded ok and convinced her to protect myself from making a mistake that she was paying for. It was childish...

    I agree. I'm sorry I made the OP with that part. It was not necessary and I apologise to everyone for my bad behavior including the seller. I have deleted it from the OP.

    Not really muddy and we keep the humidity at just under 50%. One issue was the lack of sustain. Now it really has it. No other strings could fix that that we tried. I think we tried Worth, Mahana,...

    It was sold at a price we both agree on. We did not do anything about the cosmetic issues which were all at the bridge end where the strings tie.

    That's a good point. But the fact is it was just waiting to sound great. It really does. I'm blown away that one set of strings could make such a transformation. I remember when I was first here...

    I'm not surprise no one is available to talk to. I had the same issue and finally had to cancel my order. I'll never do business with that company again.
