    hearing aids

    I wear hearing aids, and there are probably some other old guys here that do the same. I have some new aids and they help with lots of things, the telephone, the TV, hearing a high pitched voice, but when I play my uke it can sound a little tinny. If I take out my hearing aids it sounds much...

    I was changing the strings on an Enya EUR X1 camp uke. The compensated saddle came out of its slot in the bridge. On the G and A strings should the compensation slant toward the nut or the other direction? Need some help.

    So today is a dreary Saturday in Indiana. A mix of rain/freezing rain. I got out my solid-body Eleuke concert. I just plugged in my inexpensive earphones.
