How to Restring Your Ukulele
So, after many days of strumming away at your ukulele, the strings finally bit the dust. It happens to everyone with a string instrument. Fortunately for ukulele players, that day is usually few and far between due to the durable nylon strings that most ukuleles come strung with.
That day, however, does come for all ukulele players, but it doesn't have to be intimidating. With this guide, we'll walk you through the steps of restringing a classic tie bridge ukulele. First thing's first...
How to decide if your strings need replacing
If you're unsure of whether or not your strings need to be replaced, a sure way to tell is by the appearance. Strings that are worn and played often will begin to fray, usually along the fretboard. Old strings also lose the ability to hold tune over time, resulting in a duller overall sound.
Grab your ukulele, a new pair of strings, and a pair of scissors, and let's get started!
Note: These steps are specific to ukuleles. If you need to restring your acoustic guitar, please follow our guide for that.
