  2. Anyone use the nickel/ivoroid PEGHED Planetary geared tuners.?

    Oasis has sets that are good for sopranos concerts or tenors. As long as your strings are long enough it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Chris, sorry to see you having to let this uke go. But, that is a crazy great deal on a MB tenor. This should sell in about 5 minutes.

    Very clean build. The brass binding looks great. Did you pre-bend the brass or work it into place and glue?

    BTW I'd probably go with EVO Gold frets go with the brass binding.

    Got them on a few ukes. The only thing I don't like about them is their very small diameter spindles for winding string. To me that's a design flaw. I like tuning machines that have a larger...

    Every time I play this baritone, I think this should really stay put.
    But, I'll give this one more bump in an effort to reduce my collection.

    Still available.

    Latest updates from Jake. Ebony binding is on and a coat of pore-filler reveals the more finished color and nice figuring.
    To me the ebony looks classy with the Katalox.

    Eddie, love that full, rich, and clear tone in B tuning. Sounds pretty balanced to me. Great playing. Two more songs and you're halfway to full album.

    Agreed.

    Generally, I prefer about 0.030" (~1/32") clearance at the first fret, and about 0.090" (~3/32") clearance at the 12th fret for a tenor.

    After selecting the wood, I asked Jake to decide what would look best. We're going with ebony bindings, a classic look for framing the Katalox.
