    It’s not free to Canada. That’s always the problem living someplace other then the USA.

    But if I buy a ukulele from HMS and the strings at the same time the shipping is basically free. Spend $1000 to same $10.00 shipping on strings.......there’s some good math for ya

    Hey, now you're thinking!

    Yeah, but they ship them DHL. DHL are masters at exploring every possible tax and duty option on your ukulele, never seen anything like it. I think the only way to nip this in the bud is to fly to Hawaii and take delivery of strings AND UKULELE there! Problem solved. Wait, HOW much did I pay for those strings?

    I like the trip to Hawaii idea. Come home with a new ukulele and all the strings that will fit in your suitcase.

    I think I saw that the calculator is not working right for strings and that they credit back the difference. Might be worth an email to them.

    Good to know. I might look into it then. Thanks.

I don't know if Joel has access to a Goldilocks low-G gauge with the UkeLogic material, but the Savarez is a decent tonal fit. They'd be heavier than the Worth browns.

    I made a video demoing the C string switch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjE8gmXdlYE.
    Thanks for the insight and the video, Brad. Very helpful.

    I've been looking at these -

    https://www.theukulelesite.com/acces...ogic-soft.html

    It doesn't give an option to pick which size (soprano/concert/tenor). Has anyone ordered any from HMS?

    I know this is tricky to answer, but I'll ask it: can someone describe how "hard" the hard tension strings are from Uke Logic? Maybe compare to other strings from other sources? I'd love to hear about them compared to Romero strings, or Oasis, for example. Thanks.

    The A and E are similar to Worth CH. The C and low-G are significantly heavier (see my video above).
