How to change ukulele strings easily

I broke a rope or I simply want to spoil my ukulele with a new change of strings, because here we are going to show you how is the correct and practical way to change the strings of your ukulele. You do not need more than your ukulele and a package of new strings, remember before identifying the type of string your ukulele needs. Let's see!

How to change the strings of the ukulele easily?

To start changing the string of your ukulele we must look for an area with enough space where we can lay our ukulele. To avoid scratching or hitting it is also advisable to put a tablecloth although this is optional. Well, with our ukulele we are going to loosen all the strings until we can unwind them. On the side of the bridge we have to undo the knots or just pull the rope. (This depends on the type of bridge we have)

The next step is identify our new ropes, each package has the number to identify them, remember that in the way you grab the ukulele to play, the first string is the one from below, the one that follows the second, then the third and fourth.

(I recommend following these steps rope by rope)

We proceed to place first the rope by the bridge part.

If we have the bridge that has two holes, the steps are: Pass the final part of the rope through the hole.

Then we will have to make the next knot.

For the other type of bridge we will only need make a common knot on the tip of our rope and put it between the slits.

Now we go to the other end of the ukulele and put the tip of our rope through the key hole corresponding. We extend and recede a few centimeters so that the rope has a better grip when winding. Our palm has to fit as follows.

Now we have to wind our rope trying to wind it down.

When you finish winding the strings you have to cut the excess left in the head of the ukulele so that it does not look ugly and do not disturb the strings when it comes to playing and now you know how to change the string of a ukulele. It only remains to tune in the way that suits you and to play again!
