Is it time to change the strings of my ukulele?

One of the most common questions we are asked when buying a ukulele is if they need to take a changing ropes at once or how they can know when to change the strings of their ukulele,

The answer to this question is very varied since the life of the strings can change the strings of the ukulele depending on how much is used or how light is the strumming of the person playing.

Here are three tips to know if it's time for a change of strings:

1 Use the ukulele too much

With use they are being made small marks on the strings at the height of the frets, these marks are made by the pressure that is constantly applied on them against the metal strips, which in the long run can cause them to break or the tone is not the same, to detect if your strings already have these marks you can pass One finger below them to check, can you feel them? Maybe it's time to change your ropes.

2 It twitches fast

Is it hard for you to make your ukulele stay tuned? Although it is normal for new ropes to be constantly deflated, once they reach their optimum level of stretching your ukulele should no longer be unfinished almost nothing. If after a few months it starts to cost you more and more work to keep your ukulele tuned it is probably time for a change of strings.

3 Different sound when touched

Is the sound of your ukulele increasingly dull? With the passage of time, the strings of a ukulele they lose their tonal properties, so even if your ukulele is seemingly tuned, you may notice that the sound is no longer as bright as it used to be. This is a sign that you need new ropes. This is the most difficult indicator to detect, since it is completely subjective.
