    I changed strings again. Yesterday I took off the Worth BM's and put on some SouthCoast Soft Ligt Medium strings. Love them! Adds a little warmth again, kills a tiny bit of sustain but I don't mind that, and feel wonderful. I realize that three of my ukes have South Coast strings; they are the bee's knees.

    We bought these in March 2009. Strung with Aquila. Banjo type sound, lots of character. I see your fret markers are black.

    Yum! Too bad the Worth browns didn't work out; they sure looked lovely!
    Live long, prosper, and play your ukulele.

    They worked out quite well; they sounded great! But the SouthCoasts are EVEN better!

    Excellent, brother! Yep, the bees knees, the duck's guts and the cat's pyjamas. What Dirk can't do with strings aint worth doing.

    Brukos are great. Look great, sound great. Yours looks a beauty.

    I have two. I've kept the pyramid strings on mine; I like the ring they give as it suits my style. I have a set of Living Water strings for the concert which I might try. The tenor is tuned down to Bb which makes it more mellow. I was trying a soprano at a recent Uke Fest. Loved it & I nearly bought it but I got the tenor instead.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    Default 3/4 spruce

    Was looking at Bruko Online Store, they had 2 LN sopranos, one listed as Longneck Spruce, the other as Longneck 3/4 Spruce. What's the difference?

    The 3/4 refers to 3/4 the normal depth in the body.
    Ziegenspeck Spruce top tenor, Howlett Mahogany Concert, KM Mahogany Tenor, Morgan Alder Concert, Hamano Mahogany Soprano.
    Also have Howlett Spruce top Concert with tenor scale neck which I would consider selling.....
