"Hello, I was wondering if you could answer a question for me. My daughter has only been playing Baritone Ukulele about 7 months and we seem to go through a lot of strings mostly the metal ones. Just wondered if there is a preferred brand or something we should be doing... or if I should just get used to changing strings? Love the instrument and your channel too :) Any suggestions would be much appreciated"
Now that's a good question. I haven't had too many broken strings perhaps I am not playing enough. She must be playing quite a bit so that's a good thing. I wonder what could be the problem? I have used standard low D Aguila's, Worth Medium Brown all nylon strings, and a set of Martin strings.
Do the strings appear to break at a certain place: nut (near the tuners), specific fret, or at the bridge? I guess I would try to "feel" the bari-uke to see if there are any rough spots that could be damaging the strings. I will ask a few friends and leave it open ended here and perhaps some readers can leave some ideas.
