Ive been thinking a lot lately about getting some Ukulele wall hangers to hang my ukuleles on. Im not sure if this is good because some people i have talked to says that if you hang them on the wall instead of leaving them in their cases, the air and dust can damage the wood and strings. Is this true?

Please give advice if you think its a good or bad idea.

Many Thanks

If you play it regularly, dust won't gather...
If you have an expensive, high end instrument, you may want to keep it in its case, otherwise, I guess hanging it on the wall is ok.

Yes. And they can dry out dependent upon the humidity in your home. You should "put them to bed" in a case with a humidifier. I have a wall hanger, but it's only used when I'm taking a time out from playing for a few minutes.

Hanging them availably on the wall will lead to more playing, which leads to better skill, which leads to more requests, which leads to more gigs, which leads to more exposure, which leads to more fame, which leads to more money, which leads to more exposure, which leads to more fame, which leads to more money, etc.

At that point, you can give up playing the ukulele.

Wait a minute...let me back up. Both of my ukes are expensive, solid wood instruments. If you've got a laminate, it won't hurt it a bit (unless you throw objects at them, that is).

I store my ukuleles in their cases. In my opinion it's safer. If they are on the floor, they can't fall down. If they are in the cases, they can't be damaged. :)

Grabbing the ukulele on the wall or grabbing the ukulele in the case is the same "effort", so there's no reason why I should play more ukulele when they are hanging on the wall. ;)



The only ukulele hanging on the wall is my self made ukulele clock. :D

If a wood instrument is so very fragile that just air damages it? Then we're better off playing something else. If you humidify snd climate control the room like you do your case... It'll be fine.

But, isn't it more difficult (and costly) to humidify a whole room? And I just think it's a safer environment in a case. My kids can knock my uke off the wall or throw something and hit it. One particular uke of mine is worth WAY too much to risk that. Actually, two of them are.

Hang them on the wall or wherever you like and enjoy looking at them and playing them. That's what they're for.
I have a "weather station" on a cupboard which tells me temp and humidity and in my case it's always somewhere between 45 and 70 (humidity that is). So no worries. All my ukes or lying on their sides on top of a bookcase ready to be played when I want to. I don't think people in the 20s and 30s where so preoccupied with humidity and their ukes as a lot of people are nowadays.

I just came up with a word for those humidity obsessed people:
HYPOCHONDRIUKES!

I'd much prefer to have mine out on the wall or in a stand, but I'm just concerned about the want of humidity over the winter. This is my first heating season with ukes, so I'm using a hygrometer to track the relative humidity for the winter to see how effective our whole-house humidifier is. So far so good. Right at 50% and stable.

As long as your ukes are kept in a constant environment (i.e. not exposed to frequently changing climate conditions) it shouldn't make much of a difference whether you keep them hanging on the wall, under your bed or in their cases.
Avoid direct heat (like e.g. over a heater) or cold (next to an open window) and humidity below ~35% (this isn't good for you anyway). Dust can be dusted off, it does only optical damage at a certain point....

I hang my ukuleles on the wall because I want to play them any time.
Yes, I am afraid of low humidity and smoke. Because the wall is of our dining room, my ukuleles need cover when we have yakiniku (roast meat).

I've been stuck using cases all winter for many years because I couldn't find a good enough humidifier. I was just addressing the idea that all other things being constant, even just simply air alone can damage a wooden instrument. I mean yeah, instruments over time will need repairs, but they shouldn't be such delicate flowers that we're afraid that air will hurt them. :)

I found humidifier that works finally. It's one of the hot steam ones, and it costs less than the cool mist ones that are meant to fill the same square footage. Of course they can go in cases if it's still too dry. I've got case humidifiers that's no problem. But JUST air damaging the instrument?

I blame Bob Taylor for the current humidity fetish. He did such a good job evangelizing about the effects of humidity on guitars that everybody now believes that we must encase our instruments in sarcophagi to protect them from that poisonous fume that surrounds us (a.k.a. "Air"). Add in the financial incentive for the sales dude at your favorite music store, and we end up with humidifiers out the wazoo.

You cannot walk through any room of my house without having some type of instrument within quick reach (except the bathroom, of course). Hangers and stands safely offer up their musical goodness to all who enter my home... with nary a case (nor humidifier) in sight.

That being said, your local environment should dictate your actions - but rate of change is far more important than absolute values.

Plainsong
02-08-2013, 03:19 AM
That's my thinking too, the swings are even more important. The only basis I have for believing that is seeing the effects on wooden wind instruments.

Besides, the idea that air and dust are damaging is a bit flawed, in that the only way to combat that would be to vacuum-pack your ukes. A case isn't airtight, they contain air and dust.

I keep my ukes in their cases, in my "office" - where I'm sitting right now.

The hygrometer on the wall shows an RH of 16% - pretty normal for an upstate NY winter. With this RH, my hands dry out and the skin cracks without the constant application of hand lotion.

We have a humidifier in the bedroom - running full bore 24x7, it gets all the way up to about 38% RH.

The ukes in the cases are averaging 50-55% RH, by hygrometer reading, with home made humidifiers.

Even though my guitars don't have humidifiers, and have never cracked, they also have thicker tops than all but the republic and harmony ukes.

Anecdotal evidence, to be sure - but I don't expect to be hanging any of my ukes on the walls during the winter.

Ukulele Hanging On Wall...Yes or No?

An emphatic 'Yes' for my gloriously carefree laminates (as others have said). Mine hang within easy arm reach above my desk and get pulled down repeated over the course of the day. I have my first all wood ukulele winging its way to me at this moment and I may tread more carefully with it (PEZ dispensers and a sponge are on the weekend shopping list). I agree with the comments that in earlier times there didn't seem to have been such a preoccupation with this matter. It's good seeing them being played on sandy beaches, in backseats of jalopies and on snowy rail fences in old photos. Being used out in the world!

Yep, I used to have beautiful uke hangers on my wall - until two of my ukes got damaged. One cracked, another had a seam separation. The humidity in my house is regularly below 20 percent in both winter and summer.

So I ordered one of these exact cabinets from Harold, and tossed in some humidifiers. It works beautifully (and looks nice as well).

Now my room may be dry, but my ukes stay in the 38-55 percent range.

One note, I kept the hangers because I dearly love them. We may be moving to another part of LA closer to the ocean in a few years, and if so, I plan to use them then.

Scott's right, just so long as you wear gloves when you play that laminate so as not to shred your fingers on the dry, razor sharp fret ends. :D

I keep my ukuleles in cases because I worry about humidity and, here in San Francisco, earthquakes. And I'm puzzled by the idea that if an ukulele is in a case it will get played less than an ukulele on the wall. If someone can't expend whatever incremental extra effort is involved in taking an ukulele out of its case (instead of just grabbing it off of a wall hanger), then maybe playing isn't that much of a passion for him or her.

Yeah as mentioned if the conditions are right you can hang them. Myself I am guilty for hearing with my eyes when I purchase so I like to see mine :D I to live in a dry climate with heating and air conditioning so mine are in a cabinet (hope to add a Kamaka concert soon). And I personally think mine get played more because I see the eye candy. (better pics in my profile) For those who like to keep them in cases I can understand that as well and I'm sure they still get played.
Laminates are ok to hang, you may need fret dressing, my Kala pineapple has been hanging since 2008 and no dressing no problems, but hey MGM set it up for me :D4858948590
I found that my solids need little care with the plant I put in the case, I stay at about 55%, sometimes a little more or less. Just be sure NOT to use fertilizer or potting mix with fertilizer.

Thanks Newportlocal. Another nice thing is the case is not even close to being air tight and so far it is not a problem at all, plus because the plant is in a case as opposed to an open room I don't have to water it but once every 10 days or so.

I have 3 relatively cheap laminates (though the Islander was certainly expensive for me) so I'm less concerned about dust and humidity.

Still, having them hanging next to my desk (I work from home) means I reach up and grab one of them frequently and play for a bit, something I would certainly not do if they were in a closed case. Like peanuts in a dish.

If I really wanted peanuts I'd walk to the store to get them, if I had to.

I have a few high end ukuleles that I keep in cases, and I have a Kala thinline tenor travel uke that, for a while, I kept sitting out. naturally, when I was just sitting there and wanted to grab an ukulele, I'd grab the Kala travel tenor because it was right there. One day I thought, "This is crazy! The enjoyment I get out of playing one of the high end ukes is exponentially higher than the joy I get out of playing my Kala. Why would I waste the opportunity to play my Kamaka instead of my Kala just to save myself the 30 seconds it takes to take my Kamaka out of its case?" Now I take my Kamaka out of its case, and I either play it or put it on an ukulele stand until I'm done for the evening, and then it goes back into the case.

I forgot to mention my Kamaka with sapwood developed slight separation on the bottom seam right where you would install a strap button, enough to mess up the finish, it was cased with a herco at the time. So you never know..

ksiegel
02-08-2013, 08:59 AM
All of my ukes are within 3 feet of me when I'm at my desk. I may have to shuffle cases to get to the one I want, but they are within reach, and easily so.

The vita ukes are within arm's length - bent arm. I just pop the latch, and, pull a uke out, and start playing.

The walls are a lot farther away.

get a floor stand for continuous playing...and breaks with expensive wooden solids...then put em to bed...with humidifier unless you live in Hawaii.

I live in Florida so too much humidity can be a problem. I have been blessed to be able to afford several high end instruments. I keep most on the wall. I would recommend if you do hang them, put them on an interior wall. If you hang them on an outside wall, the changes in temperature can effect them. Also try to keep them from direct sunlight. Personally, I've never had a problem with any damage.
I know that I play more often with the instruments on the wall. My two cents....

I try to keep a uke or two out most of the time (and guitar and mandolin most of them solid instruments). I put them up against a wall on the floor or on instrument stands and don't worry about it. (I don't have little kids or dogs, though). I do have a room humidifier but I don't worry about any of my instruments as long as it's about 40% humidity. I've never had any problems with dryness or cracking or any accidents even.

This way I play the darn things more. Great for commercial breaks when watching TV.

Concerns over humidity & damage aside I have many instruments in the house, the ones hat get played the most are the ones out and abou ton stands/hangers, those in cases rarely get played.

I'm happy to leave my uke out and accept it may get damaged, it was made to be played after all.

I keep mine in their cases for the Winter and Summer. It is very dry in my house because of the heat in the Winter and somewhat dry in the Summer because of A/C. Once Spring and Fall comes they are on their wall hangers, although I never have more than three or four out at the same time. But once every three weeks, when the house cleaners come, they go bye bye.

I do both. I love my uke hanger. I hang the plastic and decorative ukes on it. But it is very dry here and my Martin has a crack due to not keeping it humidified :(
So my good all wood ukes are kept in their cases with humidifiers (well, with damp sponges in a baggie- it works). I play them all a lot- depending on my mood and what song I want to play I'll just grab the uke I need. It doesn't take much effort to unlatch a case. And I feel better knowing that my wood ukes are not drying out.

All my ukes are on the wall, including my custom ukes. I play them all and it's great to walk on over and just switch from the tenor to the concert or vice versa. The only uke I keep in the case is my 1932 Martin because I am lazy and have not put up the two additional string swings on my desk. I am fortunate where I live that I do not have to worry about harsh humidity or temperature.

I have my ukes on an interior wall facing my music room, but having to leave 10 cases sitting around the floor and opening and closing them several times a day would just be a big pain in the a**. If you have little kids running around or crazy neighbors that like to come over swinging gorilla arms around your ukes, then I'd go for the case. I don't know what humidity/temperature tolerances a finished (satin or gloss) uke can take without causing issues so it would be interesting to hear from folks like Rick Turner or Chuck Moore as their take on humidity and temperature and at what levels they think a uke would be negatively impacted. That's a good question for the Luthier's forum.

What material is in the bags and is it water that is on that material (distilled or purified or just tap?)
Are there holes in the bag or is the top just unsealed a bit?

A very cool way to store them for sure.

Hi, Jay. Nope, just tap water, open top freezer bags with car wash sponges. About $25 for the whole kit and caboodle at Walmart, and I can put 2-3 ukes in each container! Humidor inside reads about 50% humidity. New water when they dry out, about every three months (not every few days like the Oasis case types). lol The two stacks is key...to shuffle them around I just slide a couple onto the other stack to get at all levels. I write name of uke and sometimes strings on the index card. I tend to take 2-3 ukes out for a couple days and play them from wall hangers, and then I put them back in the mortician's boxes, then I take out a different couple or so.

I watched your video on your 1932 tonight. Oh my Lord, that uke is so minty I can taste it over here! Head stock imprint and front label... gazoo! That is the best vintage Martin I've ever set eyes on! Now you have to get a cheaper beater "picnic" Martin/Favilla soprano to bang out those Formby/Smeck right handed rhythms on. lol Steve

Well, I admire a man who likes variety in his ukes! ;-) You have some real gems. My 32 was just a damn lucky find. I am not a regular soprano player but my buddy said I had to get one soprano and it had to be a Martin so I was on the hunt when he came across it. Figure it's good enough for my "sole" soprano. I have a renew love with it since I put that Fremont Soloist on it.

Thanks for the info on the bags.

I kept up to a dozen ukuleles hanging on an interior wall in our living room in Santa Barbara for about ten years and it never hurt any of them. But I recently decided that the ones I had left were too valuable to me to worry about in an earthquake so now they live in their cases.

Both the heat in winter and ac can dry out the room, but the humidifier does its thing, I know because the readout maintains it at 50 and I fill it up with water every couple of weeks.

I keep it right by the wall of ukes...

For those in the states using a room humidifier, what do you use? Something like this?:

I've had my ukes on my wall for years and I tend to find I play them a lot more. In that I mean I play them a heck of a lot anyway and because they are there in my face and added extra more ;)

I guess it's just the same as having them on stands in the corner of your room? Just they look cooler hanging...

I keep mine on floor stands in my music/computer room. I tend to rotate them a bit so that there aren't always the same ones out. Those not out on stands are stored in well padded gig bags.

Humidity isn't a problem in the UK. I have a hygrometer downstairs and most of the time it's between 40% and 60%
