    Question Strings

    I have a brand new Ukulele Mahalo. I think I need new strings.
    If I can't find "ukulele strings" . What type of strings should I use instead?. Thanks.

    Just go to your local music shop and ask for Aquila ukulele strings.
    I presume you have a soprano size? If in doubt take it to the shop
    with you they ought to know!

    Athenea, I also buy from Elderly, great choices and great to deal with. Worth strings and Aquila strings are probably the two "most popular" brands. Aquila helps produce a "brighter" sound in my opinion. There are some good tutorials on YouTube for changing strings. Also remember, after changing strings, they will take a few days to settle in so you will have to re-tune the uke often.
