How should I tune my Ukelele

This is something we are asked about often.
The reason being that there is probably more different tuning options on the Ukulele than most other instruments.
Here is a general guide to help with Tuning your Ukulele...

Most People learn on the Soprano and this is nearly always tuned G C E A (High G)

You need reasonable fixings for the Ukulele to stay in tune and a good set of strings, such as Aquila.
Note: Beat It Music sell Ukuleles with good fixings and Aquila strings fitted as standard from just £35.

The 4 most popular sizes of Ukulele are Soprano, Concert, Tenor and Baritone (Soprano being the smallest, up to Bass, the largest)

Alternative tunings can be used on Concert down to Baritone, using a low G instead of a High G. (Mainly considered for Concert and Tenor Ukuleles) this can also help when more than one Ukulele are being played together, where the slightly different tone can blend and create a greater overall sound.

Alternative Guitar tuning options…

When tuning a Ukulele using guitar tuning, there are again two options that people use.
Either E A D G .. or .. D G B E (Mainly Baritone Ukuleles).

We hope you found these notes useful and you are welcome to call in and discuss tuning in more detail at any time.

Makala Ukuleles by Kala

The Waterman ukulele pays homage in part to the legendary ukulele designer, Mario Maccaferri. Inspired at the 1939 World’s Fair he saw plastic as the material of the future. Mario eventually combined his skills as a luthier and his business of injection molding and invented the Maccaferi Ukulele.
The innovative Waterman is a high-quality, affordable ukulele that sounds great and stays in tune. It is the portable, take-anywhere ukulele.

Aquila - Quality Ukulele Strings Our Price £7.50

The New Nylgut Series of ukulele strings by Aquila were developed by blending three different synthetic components to make a composite material that sounds better and stays in tune better than standard nylon strings, but with the feel and playability of genuine gut. An added feature of this exclusive composite material is that is was designed to absorb less moisture than other strings; which greatly improves intonation and tuning accuracy.
The New Nylgut Ukulele strings have a density similar to gut, but provide an even more refined sound; eliminating the characteristic metallic-like tones often found in other synthetic designs. For the best sounding synthetic gut string for ukuleles, that still gives the player the feel of genuine gut, Aquila New Nylgut are the perfect choice!
