    Honestly, nothing. If it's a song I like, I'll look into putting it on the uke. It leads to a lot of different tunes that may not initially be thought of. Some of those include:

    Sorry, yes. Working on lots of different projects right now all at once.

    I'd probably grab a 2395, which is the .034 version of the same smoothwound silvered copper. That would hold up for a...

    I got to work with Craig closely on putting that set together, so I have a little experience with them. It's a different sound than what you'd expect from a tenor, but not as deep and rich as a...

    It all depends.

    If you want to do it because you enjoy working/tinkering on instruments and the entire process in general, do it. At that point, the money and time spent is valuable to you in...

    Yes. Piezo and transducer pickups are VERY unforgiving in terms of sounds; what you put in is exactly what is put out. So I usually keep nylon and nickel smoothwound strings on my BP ukulele, which I...

    As with carrying instruments on any flight now, it's not an issue as long as there is adequate storage available for said instrument (that's their caveat). If you are truly concerned, spend the extra...

    A lot of times, the G and A string will be the same string, but mentioned as a different diameter for marketing purposes. For smaller gauged strings, there's a +/- .0005 tolerance, so there is...

    Having both and playing both, in a band setting the difference is minor at best. If anything, the Hofner will cut through better and more easily sit in the mix; the U-Bass is just too tubby.

    As a musician, you're an ambassador for your instrument. Like you, any time someone asks I take it as they are interested in the instrument and trying to compliment you.

    I don't worry about it at all. Most of the time, people making comments like that do not have as much musical knowledge as we do and are trying to start up a conversation as they are generally...

    Most of the metals used for classical guitar / ukulele strings is either silvered copper, or phosphor bronze (either in 8%, or 80/20 or 85/15 copper zinc). As you've noticed those are much softer...

    Any classical string that is marketed as "smoothwound" or "polished" or "rollerwound" is basically the same thing as the Fremont, so you've got plenty of options.

    As for selling custom ukes, I see a lot of people get overly excited about their build, and get caught up in the minutia of the build by going over EVERY SINGLE...

    It's nice for what it is and what it does, but I haven't played it in over a year. Will more than likely sell it at some point.

    Without seeing a picture, my guess is that it's a trussrod cover, so if you remove it, you will have access to the trussrod to adjust it.

    Or, if the instrument doesn't have a trussrod, it may...

    I've flown with instruments far larger than a ukulele (electric basses, usually), and it's really a piece of cake.

    PAY FOR PRIORITY BOARDING. The second point is key, as all of the new Airline...

    Strictly on ukulele, there isn't any place out of the ordinary that I've played at, that I'd consider "interesting" per se.

    On bass, one of my favorite places was a monastery that was built in...

    Totally depends on the OP's use. For beginning and playing in the comfort of your home, you'll be fine. If the OP starts playing out with the U-Bass, a dedicated bass amp will not only sound better...
