    Aquila makes a Concert set—it’s 31U. I have a set on my Lanikai concert banjolele, but they should be okay on a regular uke.

    I also have a Gold Tone tenor banjolele tuned to Hi-C GDA for...

    Yeah, I know. I had the E mixed up, and it threw me way off. It wasn’t my first UU mistake though—ahhh, well. :old:

    Okay, so you have a G string an octave below our “normal” low G and then a regular low D and then an A and an E which is lower than the A.

    ukantor, I agree with what you’ve said. I’ve heard about the “good” fire too, but it just ain’t fair to us humans. :old:

    Are you talking about our regular low G? If so, then the E will be an octave too low won’t it? What low G are you talking about? A G an octave below ours would be way too low.

    I think our...

    Booli, lots of California is just very dry. It rains here and even snows some places but not like other states. Some of the fires are caused by accident like flipping one’s cigarette out of a car...

    I agree that it is more “little guitar” than ukulele. The different tuning makes it that way. I think it’s in the same class as the tenor guitar and mebbe the tenor banjo. But one thing that makes...

    Well, our air seems to have cleared up, so I finally got out of the house. We ran some errands and did a “mall crawl”.

    All my ukes, except my spruce topped baritone, are plywood, and they all sound good enough for my playing level.
