I just received today a Timms Style 0 direct from England. I have been wanting one since reading Connor's review and couldn't resist when I wrote Ken and he told me there was one on ebay and it would be his last for a while. It appears right out of the box to be as wonderful as everybody claims they are. Excellent craftsmanship and loud with a lot of sustain.

It came with Aquila strings which I am not too crazy about and will probably change to fluorocarbons right away. Would love to know what strings others are using on their Timms.

Yeah yeah! Congrats, Mitch.

I wore out some Southcoast mediums on my Timms, which sounded great, and currently have it strung with Worth BMs. As you'd expect, the SCs were a louder, cleaner sound. The BMs are much, much mellower and don't quite have the same note separation.

PS Where are the pics?!

it's such a nice re-creaction of a Martin, I really like the Martin m600 fluorocarbons on mine. Worth clears are nice too.

How exciting! I'm sure Living Water would sound great, too!

Congratulations. Great uke! :) Love mine too; it's so light and loud. I replaced the Aquila's with Martin M600's.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I have some Worth Clears on hand and will try those first and then some of the others.

I put some Living Water strings on mine a few days ago.They'll still settling in but i much prefer them to the Aquilla strings,a bit more mellow and less "boomy".

Great soprano, Mitch!

I'm hoping that someday I'll be able to afford another of your hand-me-downs...

Keep me in mind if you tire of the Kinnard or the Timms. (g)

Just to be clear: I am not admitting that yours is prettier, but that grain pattern is pretty sick.
