    ukulele with no bracing or kerfling

    Listened to a non-braced concert size pineapple uke. Gives some Romero's competition in loudness and tone (right up until the time the soundboard cracks?)

    Anyone ever use a Boss Super Octave OC-3 pedal

    Romero ST-Concert Penney Lane tuning

    I got a Romero ST Concert with a laminate mahogany body and solid spruce top. It has the Romero low g tuning with wound low g. Sound is HUGE, and loud, otherwise sounds very good but I can't help wonder what it would sound like with high g tuning. Wonder what strings would sound best in the...
