Thread Name: advice sought ukulele tuning
Subject: RE: advice sought ukulele tuning
I've retuned my ukulele up and down loads of times. Though, it has to be said, mostly down rather than up.
I would be very surprised if you were risking breaking a string by tuning it up one tone. If you are in any doubt, then see if you can get a lower-gauge string. They're only nylon strings, they're not metal.
I have a Makala MKPN pineapple ukulele. It's cheap, about £40 I think. I actually put higher-tension strings on it (forget which exactly) than the ones it came with, because I found them to be a bit floppy.
