    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...

    When I look at reviews - of ANYTHING online - any scathing ones I usually discount (the same goes for the tremendously glowing reviews as well). Leave negative feedback, but be clear about your...

    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?

    I understand your frustration. Your email to the seller seems a little more based on emotion, at which point the buyer may be less inclined to deal with you reasonably.

    As per Olarte's...

    It's completely subjective, really.

    However, the titanium nylon strings I find have a slightly brighter/tighter tone than regular nylon strings. The actual tension is a bit higher than nylon (but...

    I've used a couple, but come back to the GHS H-T13, which is an aluminum wound string that is lightly polished (read: quieter than a standard wound string). It fits in really well with any of the...

    I picked concert, as it was the size that I gravitate toward most.

    That's not it; that's for a baritone that wants re-entrant tuning, and no wound strings. Mike Kassel originally requested that set, and we put it together.

    I don't have Craig's Bari-Tenor set on...

    Exactly. You can get the space and chord voicings that you hear in a 12-string guitar, but in ukulele form.

    Craig Chee uses a re-entrant bari-tenor set of GHS strings, that we worked together on; you can buy them direct from GHS or Craig during his many concerts and clinics.

    It's a pretty cool tuning on...

    Aside from keeping it in a separate case where nothing can jostle it, your photo of the positions is probably the best option.

    This comment hits me as ironic, because tab was originally designed as a short cut toward learning to read music.

    That said, I don't think there's a specific method book available for learning to...

    That's not a valid argument. There's a huge difference between "self taught and doing fine" and "classically trained," which since the OP is very interested in learning classical guitar (specifically...

    It's great if you're playing by yourself. As soon as you play with a regular piano, you'll realize how useless this tech becomes.

    A lot of players say it adds too much weight to the headstock,...

    Two points of clarification on this.

    One, they probably were from us, as GHS used to have a gigantic OEM market for ukulele strings prior to Aquila.

    Two, nylon strings are the only kind of...

    I use them on an all maple uke that I have, as anything else makes the instrument thin and shrill sounding.

    From experience, I'd say no. The only "old school" amp company that you could use an acoustic instrument easily with is Gallien Krueger; tons of jazz guys still swear by the old MicroBass MB-150S,...

    It's not a consumer show. However, it's fairly easy to get a pass if you know someone in the industry.

    I know they have a "Consumer Day" at the Summer NAMM (in July, in Nashville) but I'm not...

    Obviously the choice is yours, but if you can afford the Double Four I would encourage you to spend the money once on a quality amplifier, instead of buying a "budget" amplifier that you may...

    All depends on what you want. In the bass world, Carvin amps are just so-so at best. Combos by Gallien-Krueger (the MB 110, 112-II, etc.) , Markbass and more can compete easily with Carvin and are...

    Actually, four.

    The Phil Jones Double Four can be run off a small rechargeable battery, that is about the size of a cell phone. Many folk use this with great results. I have the Briefcase and the...

    What is your budget? That is going to be a HUGE factor in this, as "portable" and "affordable" are not mutually exclusive.
