    Parlor guitar search

    Arrived yesterday, just in time for Santa to gift it to me! Still not sure how I was able to get it to Florida from Thomann cheaper than any US dealer. https://www.thomannmusic.com/recording_king_rm_993.htm

    Mandola (Mandolin)

    Gold Tone has some decent stuff and has nice quality control too. I actually started on the mandolin before the ukulele. I still mess around with it.

    Strings for a bass

    KohanMike is definitely the expert here on uke basses. I'm not a big fan of the rubbery ones, I prefer something that feels a bit more traditional: https://www.stringsbymail.com/gold-tone-microbass-silverbacks-silver-wrapped-nylon-strings-17971.html

    Ukulele sliding in ones lap

    Is this going to be like that "what are your left hand fingers doing" thread? Am I going to go home and find the uke sliding all around on my leg tonight? Just a warning, if that happens, my pants are coming off.

    What do you put on wooden pegs to make them work better?

    In a pinch, I have used violin rosin to stop the slipping.

    How manufacturers can encourage UAS

    I think you should really lean on the homebuilders. Stop all this nonsense about "guest rooms" and give the people what they really want - a ukulele wing !!!
