    Yep! Strings are a personal choice. We all have different hearing & different tastes in what sounds best. :D

    I didn't like their stylized 'O' logo that used on a recent model's head stock, it didn't look right to me, as I quite like the original. :)

    I'd been thinking of asking here, but didn't know whether to or not, but he's been in my thoughts just lately - it's been a while since we heard anything - hopefully 'no news is good news' as they...

    Many thanks for making this available to others - it looks like it took you a lot of work.

    Only had a quick glance through it just now, but it is obviously going to be interesting to read all...

    I found out, having bought a tenor, then a soprano, & finally a concert, (in quick succession, I might add), that I spent my real learning time on concert scale, a lot of which was actually on a long...

    Looks like they took the strings of to paint it, the nut fell out, & they didn't have a clue where it should go when they put the strings back on! :wallbash:

    I'd beware of their opinion that this...

    It's what happens to sell best just now - nearly all manufacturers produce all the four standard sizes. :)

    Soprano, concert, tenor, & baritone, they're all popular with players, & some of us like...

    Very clever, however, I am guessing that your bridge is held in place by a fairly strong spring, against which you are using the 'nylon' strings to pull, to be able to fold it, therefore putting a...

    Couldn't quite convince myself I needed that particular model, but looked at it often, (maybe, one day), congrats, enjoy. :)

    Welcome aboard. :)

    I always recommend starting with a concert scale, so you're in the right place. ;)

    If they are all 'sloppy' feeling, it could be that they are tuned an octave down. :)

    Did you swap them over one at a time, or all at once - I'm guessing all at once. ;)

    Welcome aboard.

    I always recommend starting with a concert, unless coming from another stringed instrument, so I will say get a tenor, & Kala or Ohana. :)

    You can transpose any tune, or you can play it as you find it. :)

    Stick with Low G, the uke has a limited range, the low G makes sense for anyone who isn't just strumming. ;)

    Yeah, I can't quite get the Bluegrass feel into my tune either - that sounded a bit bluesy - so maybe we should invent 'Bluesgrass' as a new genre. :)

    Most are tenor scale, though there is also soprano, there used to be a Mahalo steel string 'Surfboard' uke, but I don't know if you will be able to find one. Clearwater/Vorson (about 120) is tenor...

    Maybe take a look at a Behringer ADI21, (about 30), might be all you need if you have an under saddle pick up. :)

    Too expensive for a 10 year old Kala, (in my opinion), though it does look quite like a cedar top.
    Like the others though, I think you'd be better off buying a new one, especially as you are quite...

    That says it's a magnetic pickup, so unless you have steel strings, it's the wrong kind of pickup. ;)

    I'm the wrong side of the pond, unfortunately, as these don't come up for sale often.
    These ukes have a clear tone to them, & are quite a bit brighter than the SLNG, from memory when I was looking...

    I have Ohana solid mahogany long neck sopranos, but they have the 'standard' string spacing.
    I really like the tone of them, & they can be quite loud. :)
