Frequently Asked Questions


What makes Fluorocarbon strings special?

Ukulele strings made from Fluorocarbon tolerate changes of temperature and humidity better, which make them more durable than regular Nylon strings, perfect for our Canadian weather. They give your Uke a brighter sound and projection. Also it might be just a preference, but the clear colour gives your Uke a nice modern touch.

How often should I change strings?

There’s not a hard rule about this, it will depend on how often you play. All strings by nature, after being subjected to constant tension will occasionally break or lose quality. This can be in as short of one month for hardcore players to one year or more for occasional players. So if you feel that your strings are not holding the tune as they used to or the sound gets less bright and crisp they might be due for a change. Check out our shop to find a string set suitable for you.

Are your strings wound?

Our current product line do not contain any metal wound strings. All our strings are made of 100% fluorocarbon.
