BrianQ. replied to Seth Deitch's discussion strings in bulk in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"I’m a bit late, but they do sell strings in bulk. Music stores buy them in bulk lots so as to cater to players who like to make custom sets. They come in singles since one end has a ball stop"

strings in bulk

  I have been doing a workshop on cigar box baritone ukes at a local maker space that is run by a public library. The workshop is free and the library is willing to pay for everything, but I still think I would like to trim costs where I can. I have learned that buying really cheap machines is not worth it. Sam goes for decent quality wood for necks. I was wondering though if strings could be bought in bulk, like maybe on a large reel. I figured that guitar factories might use such a thing.See More

Seth Deitch replied to Brown Water Jerry (Rice)'s discussion How many frets? in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"I have been making ukes with only 4 or 5 chromatic frets. You can strum the chords for almost every pop song ever written with just that. If you want to get fancier, you can always add more later."

I built one for fun, but it is also easy to teach people how to make one and get them interested in music and musical instruments. I volunteer at a Public library run maker-space and do a workshop on Cigar Box Ukes.
