    I have a Mainland cedar top tenor. The original strings are on it and I assume they are Aquilas. I am not pleased with the sound and the tension seems very high. Does anyone have any suggestions for other strings for this ukulele? I know this is a very subjective subject but I would really...

A friend suggested that I get a Fishman Loudbox Mini Acoustic Amp. is this a good amp and are there others in the same price range ($150-$250) that would do the job. Any...

    Recommendations for strings on a Kiwaya Concert?

    I have just gotten a mahogany Kiwaya concert. A bit beat up but very playable. It is missing two strings, so I'll be getting new ones. Any recommendations for strings would be appreciated. Also will a MiSi pick up work on it? Thanks

    Low G string

Because it's a concert ukulele is there a low G string that is slightly lesser in diameter. I'd like to put...

    What Happened to the Dr. Uke Website?

    I've logged in to the Dr. Uke website but I can only get the audio of the tunes, not the tunes with words and chords. Is this something temporary or have things changed on the website? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    Why Did I Tell You I Was Going To Shanghai

    I'm looking for the chords to this old tune. Can anyone help. Also does anyone know of a website that handles obscure American tunes like the one I referenced. I'm also looking for chords to Matt Dennis' "Compared to You." Thanks for any help.

    Just got back from Oahu.

    I just got back from Oahu. Checked out the usual ukulele stores in Honolulu, but made a special trip to the North Shore - Haleiwa - to see the new Hawaiian Music Supply store there. Haleiwa is a small town, about an easy 45 minute drive from Honolulu. The store is easy to find. I had the great...
