About Ukulele Strings

Ukulele strings are available from guitarguitar. We keep stock of string sets to suit all major sizes of ukulele. Whether you play a Soprano, Tenor or Baritone uke, we'll have just the set for you.

Ukulele strings are normally made from nylon. Certain brands such as D'Addario offer other options like titanium. This gives a brighter sound, something that is appropriate for Ukuleles.

The string gauges tend to fall in line with whichever size uke the strings are purposed for. Even so, actual gauges vary from brand to brand. Dunlop's Tenor uke set is 0.029 - 0.041, lightest to highest, whilst the equivalent Martin set is 0.022 - 0.034. This will effect how the instrument plays, feels and sounds. It is worth a little experimentation to get your best preference!
