okay, i have a problem

out of the water (figure of speech) i have come in contact with getting a 10-string ukulele, the strings are in pairs and there are 5 pairs. I am wondering how to tune it 'cause the strings sound way out of tune....

any help here?

Well i know on a five string The tunning is G-C-E-A-C The high C being an octave higher...so I would assume it would be the same on your ten string just the second set of strings would tunned an octave higher like on a 12 string guitar. Don't take my word on this i have a very limited knowledge of Ukuleles.

Hold on. If it is strung like a mandolin (being pairs of the same gauge) the strings would be tuned to precisely the same note. If it is string in reverse order like a 12-string guitar (being paired with a thinner gauge string, though I can't see that happening on a ukulele), only then would it be tuned an octave up. I think we need a picture of it to make a proper judgement. My first guess is that it's tuned like a mandolin, since I can't picture having even THINNER strings paired with those already strung on a ukulele.

It appears as if the strings are paired by the same gauge, so I would tune each pair to the same note (just as you would a mandolin). In this case, G C E A C would be the correct tuning.
