    They are not the same chord shapes, due to the different tunings of the instruments. The Amaj10 that you mentioned (with the root on the fifth fret of the E string and the tenth [because it's above...

    And my point is, if the OP was looking at this on a whim, why spend the extra money on something he may sell in a couple weeks? Since my original comment, he has mentioned that he wants to play with...

    I understand that, which is why I mentioned at low volumes the OP would probably be okay. Countless people do that for just playing in the comfort of their own bedroom, which if that was the OP's...

    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...

    Wow. How much do you gig out, because that's the complete opposite of what I've encountered.

    The bass is not really meant as a chordal instrument (although you can do it). But yes, since the bass is tuned in fourths, if you want to play chords on it you will need to learn new chord shapes. ...

    I used to play in a jazz group with a guitarist, who was an older gentleman. Always apologized before we played, and he was gooooooooooooood; very tasty use of chords, passing tones, and beautiful...

    My friends and I have a saying, in that "You're only as good as your last four bars."

    I'm always looking for new techniques, new music, etc.. to help further my playing. THAT is good, and all...

    I do find approaching chords a little trickier on ukulele. Unless you're tuning with a low G, you're really just playing triad most of the time, so finding the chord that not only works in the...

    If this is working for you, that's great.

    However, and take this as a seasoned bass player imparting some hard earned wisdom on someone as they approach a new horizon, at some point if you really...

    Any string that is the 4th/D for a classical guitar you can easily get as a single (and more than likely is the exact same string as one packaged especially for ukulele).

    Oasis has a smooth wound...

    Sorry, yes. I meant same "land mass" (I'm sure my geography teacher is shaking their head in disappointment). And yes, it's substantially cheaper to ship from the same landmass than overseas. GHS...

    Look at it this way.

    OPT 1 - GHS gets nylon strings - like everyone else - from a third party.
    Third party cost is $.40 per set
    Third party sells set for $.75 per set to GHS
    GHS quotes...

    You're looking at this from a consumer level.

    Nylon is BY FAR less expensive than fluorocarbon (which I'm assuming is what you meant when you said fishing line) and then when you bring in the...

    Loyalty MAY have something to do with it. But when it comes to production, it really comes down to money. Saving .02c per instrument may seem like nothing to us, but when that factory is kicking out...

    I feel you, but yeah, the weather has delayed EVERYBODY. I have a vintage bass coming my way that is two days late (shipped UPS), solely because of the weather. Nothing you can do, but just hope that...

    I'm not a painter by any means, but that doesn't stop me from changing the color of the walls in the kitchen to give it a completely different look/feel. That's roughly the same difference with...

    I appreciate the idea and the concept behind it, but really all they did was make another MIDI instrument, except this one needs your iPhone.

    They are! We use those purple ones in a couple different sets, so even though Craig doesn't use them currently, we still offer them. Your local store can order them under the product number CU-STR.

    Maybe? You have to remember that with exception to the wound strings used in ukulele sets, nearly everyone (Aquila being the exception I know of) is buying them from one or two places that deal with...

    I had fluorocarbons on my Lanakai Tenor, which is all maple and thought the fluoros sounded too bright, thin and harsh. Went all the way back to standard black nylon strings in an effort to soften...

    Ah, that makes sense.

    Well, I should've been clear. The ones I avoid are the 1 star, "This company SUCKS! Don't EVER deal with them!!!" reviews as well as the 5 star, "This is the BEST COMPANY...

    She got to travel to Hawaii and visit a legendary ukulele store. That in and of itself is a good memory!

    Her entire comment seems more centered around the fact that it's a bad thing that she DID...

    As long as there aren't any visible dents, dings or what have you, on a floor model, why should you get a discount?
