Wood Ukulele

Washburn OU2 Oscar Schmidt Ukulele sounds?

I bought a Washburn OU2 Oscar Schmidt Ukulele (i'm learning to play), but it doesn't really sound like the Hawaiian ukulele. If I were to change the strings to it, would it sound more like one, or do I just have to buy a more expensive ukulele to get that sound?

It would help the tone of your ukulele to get some good quality strings (such as Worth or Aquila).

But I think the biggest thing you could do to get the Hawaiian sound is to practice. The better you get, the more you'll be able to create the sound you want no matter what the instrument.

If you're desperate for a more authentic Hawaiian sound, you'll need a koa wood ukulele. KoAloha ukes are a great make:

And their other brand KoAlana are more affordable.

Good luck with it.
