Many of you already restring your own ukulele, and of course there is more than one way to string a uke, but could there be beneficial techniques you are not aware of? Is it possible that they could improve your overall experience by minimizing issues like string slippage, breaks, or even potential intonation problems?
Joel is a key member of our team. He’s a methodical and intelligent young man that has most likely set up more ukes than anyone of any age. Not only that, but he studies best practices and learns from other experienced luthiers. If you can take the time to watch this lengthy video and concentrate on what is being shown, you can most likely take away something to try as you restring your ukulele. If something passes too quickly for you, it will most likely be shown again at a different angle. Hope this is a useful reference for stringing techniques from the head of our setup department here at The Ukulele Site.
