    Vintage Kamaka question…

    Just put some spare Aquilas that I forgot I had on it. Much better! Still has a ton a volume but it “fattened” it up a bit and took away some of the harshness. I should have known, I really like Aquila strings on most (not all) of my ukes.

    Vintage Kamaka question…

    I have worth browns on there now. I was thinking about giving the Kamaka strings another chance. I love it, but it sounds like a KoAloha to me and I’d rather have a more warm “island” sound.

    KoAloha's New Tuners

    I noticed this too and I gotta admit that I’m disappointed. I love the look of friction pegs and I always thought KoAloha used excellent ones, hope this doesn’t stick.

    Slotted Bridge...Wound String

    I’ve done it. I don’t think it should be a problem. To be honest I never considered that it could hurt a slot bridge.

    WTB - Kiwaya KTS-7

    Yeah, I know it’s a long shot, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to put it out there.
