No matter the quality, price, or size of your ukulele, it needs to be cared for and maintained.
One simple way to start caring for your ukulele is by putting it in its case when it’s not in use. This helps protect it from drops, keeps it away from dust and dirt, and protects it during travel. This doesn’t, however, always protect the instrument from cracks and other forms of damage. As many ukuleles are made of wood, that wood being exposed to the elements can cause it to expand or contract causing fret sprout and cracked bodies. It’s important to control the humidity levels of your ukulele through ukulele humidifiers. Humidifiers are a great tool to help keep your instrument hydrated and healthy.
