    Thanks for checking that out, Besley. Their write-up about the case makes it sound as though it fits all of the sizes of Fireflies, though I did wonder how the one size would fit all of their models. Did they say whether they plan to make one that fits the tenor Firefly?

    No indication - just that they do not offer a hard case at this time.

    Thanks everyone. I went to try both a soprano and concert last week and both of them seemed to have this odd buzzing to me. I was in a really good shop (they specialize in ukes) and even the guy there noticed it. Don't know if it's common the the Fireflies or if they're just off somehow.
    While I was there I actually picked up a spruce top Kala long neck that sounds almost more banjo-y. Then I found a guy selling one close to me for only $80. Lucky me!

    I made one for mine. It cost over $100, though. : ) I used 1/4" plywood, so it was rather heavy. It looks nice, though, and it did the job - till I sold the Firefly.

    If you're interested, I could send it to you if we can agree on a price.

    I'll post some pictures of it tomorrow (if I remember )

    From what I've read, it's not unusual for banjos and banjo ukes to have some buzzing. Read a lot of reviews. I have a Duke 10 and a Gold Tone, and I'm not bothered by any buzzing. Maybe it's there, and maybe it isn't, but I like the sound of both of them.
