Welcome Back Ukelin and Violin-Uke Strings!

THEY'RE BAAAAACK! Join me in a hearty Welcome Back to ukelin and violin-uke strings, which have been unavailable for 45 years.

Old metal strings experience metal fatigue, are dead in tone and tuning becomes difficult. New strings improve your instrument's playability, tone and tuning.

Due to semi-popular demand, replacement ukelin strings are now available individually as well! (Sorry, not for Violin-Uke strings.)

Please make sure you get the right strings for your instrument. The Violin-Uke and Ukelin are different instruments. Violin-Ukes are a different size than the ukelin, and ukelin strings do not work on them. If you're not sure if you have a Ukelin or a Violin-Uke, Violin-Ukes have a decal inside the soundhole with the name "Marxochime Colony" on it.
