View Full Version : Outdoor Ukulele questions??

09-13-2018, 07:36 PM
For those who own both the soprano and tenor Outdoor Ukuleles, do you find the intonation better on one model versus the other? I'm leaning towards the soprano but I wanted to hear some real world experience for those that own both.
Also I am interested in purchasing one with strap buttons installed. For those that have used strap buttons on their outdoor ukuleles before( I haven't) do you prefer to have the second one installed on the body near the neck joint or just the one at the end and tie the strap off at the headstock? I like the idea of the second one but worry about neck dive if I'm not holding the neck with my left hand. Any thoughts on that, comfort or playability?

I don't own either, but to address the strap buttons, I put buttons on the heel of the neck on all my tenor ukes. As light as ukes are, Ive never experienced neck dive, I have on a couple of my bass ukes that come with those large bass tuning machines so I also use straps with a rough or suede back to help prevent sliding.

8 tenor cutaway ukes, 5 acoustic bass ukes, 9 solid body bass ukes, 7 mini electric bass guitars

Vic, a UU regular, reviewed all of them lately. Here’s a link to one and you can link to his blog from the post

I much prefer having the second strap button on the body. The neck can dive with either configuration. If the strap is non-slip, it should stay where you put it.

I believe Vic did a comparison of those two.
