Hilo Ukulele

whats wrong with my ukulele?

ok so I bought a ukulele about a month ago and ive noticed it dosent sound like a ukulele should. I bought it from a guitar store and its in tune and has nylon strings. I bought it for about $40. Its a Hilo ukulele and its made in china whats wrong?!?!?!?!?!?

Ty L,
My friend bo't a Hilo soprano from a guitar store for $60 with friction tuners and we tried everything to keep it in tune. There's nothing wrong with a guitar store....but there's a reason they're called "guitar stores". Did you see a lot of ukuleles there? Finally he took it back to the store and luckily they gave him his money back. He then bo't himself a Lanikai LU-21C from http://www.musiciansfriend.com/navigation?q=ukulele&st= They also have an LU-21 for $50. I hope you won't have to revert to that.
Try this.
Are you sure it's in tune? See http://www.get-tuned.com/ukulele_tuner.php
Does it have friction tuners or gear tuners (like those on a guitar)? Friction tuners have a tendency to loosen. Tighten the screw at the end of the peg so it won't slip after tightening.
Strings? New ukulele strings are going to stretch....a lot. You'll have to keep tuning it till they wear in. Also, most ukuleles (no matter what brand) and especially under a couple hundred bucks have fishing line for strings. Not really fishing line, but after tightening them a couple dozen times you'll think so. Put some Aquila Nylgut strings on it. http://ukulelehunt.com/buyaukulele/ukulelestrings/aquila
Get yourself a digital tuner. Cherub #WST550U is great. Ebay item #380064749409
Good luck and have fun,
