    The RB Continental is possibly more protective than most hard cases. Definitely more than the Fusion F4. But I'm interested in the answer. Also I'd throw one of the high-end Mono cases in the...

    If they still carry the Fremont Steady case, and the price isn't out of reach, it's a very nice, and protective, soprano gig bag. You can fit an iPad in the front pocket, which makes it great for...

    What a lot of misinformation to wade through on these sites. It sounds like you've made an informed decision, and with a good vendor, will end up with a well set-up uke. Now all that's left is the...

    That's extreme, but a good choice!

    A friend has this model. I have the newer version. They are different, but neither is "better." His older one has a slightly smaller, thinner, body. Is that your...

    I think Islander must be a brand you really should get from one of the specialty dealers. The one I had that was rough was a concert, too, Junie, and probably mahogany, as that's what I was looking...

    I do like sopranos. Expensive sopranos, usually. At one point I ordered an Islander and found it roughly made and unimpressive. I sent it back. I think Kala or Ohana are better. I have a $40 Kmise...

    I've got my concert and my low g tenor, and those will likely stay the same. But I currently have five sopranos, and I like them all. Three seems like more than enough, so two may go. Two are...

    I'd suggest waiting for any all solid Tiny Tenor. It's really made much more nicely than the solid top one. Plus, you'll be done, and not looking for an all solid in a month or two, wondering what...

    Ha, Gilligan wrote Country Roads.

    I don't think this should be in Shameless Self Promotion. It's Selfless Self Promotion. It should be in the songs portion, whatever that's called.

    Unlikely to produce a perfect match, but you might look at yard sale or thrift store suitcases, briefcases, etc. You might even have something around the house already.

    So every time you need to change the battery, you have to remove your tuning peg as well? How long before that starts rattling and you need a bigger screw or whatever?

    Some ukes just work better with certain strings. It sounds like Flukes and Fleas prefer nylon. But it also sounds like the black paper works fine. The advantage there is you can easily use nylon if...
