    traveling with music

    So how do you take your music along with you when you travel around? I'm talking lyrics and chords, ideally as compact as possible. Right now I have a 3 ring binder, but the uke itself is more portable than the music. What are you guys using?

    electronic songbook for your headstock

    too big for a uke? I'm sure it would upset the balance quite a bit, but it's an interesting concept http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/26/for-all-your-digital-guitar-playing-cheat-sheet-needs-theres-i/

    F/S Tenor Hard Foam Case

    I was looking through my cases and realized that I have a couple extras, one of which is this tenor case that I ordered and never got around to using. It turns out, once I installed the strap button, the uke is too big, so I need a bari case. I'm looking to unload this lanikai tenor sized hard...

    Strings coiled on headstock

    This is probably a silly question, but every once in a while I see a ukulele strung up with a coil of extra string around each tuner on the headstock. Is this an extra string in case one breaks, or just the unclipped remainder of the original string? Is there a purpose for this, or is it...

    For those of us who didn't win Deach's 6 string

    I stumbled across this one on Amazon of all places, a Lanikai 6 string tenor with a solid spruce top for 125 shipped. That's tough to beat. It looks like they only have a couple left, but for those of us on a budget, it's an option, right...

    post requirement for marketplace

    So there's what looks like the second scam by the same person up in the marketplace right now, both IDs were low post numbers. Is there a way to require a certain number of posts before somebody can list in the marketplace for our protection?

    a mainland on craigslist

    I keep an eye on a few craigslists, one of which is atlanta GA, where my folks are. This is a pretty sweet price for a mainland, even if it is a second. Hope it helps someone. http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/msg/1418990345.html

    S.S. Stewart Collegian banjolele

    I’m thinking about selling my banjolele because I just don't play it much and I just can’t pick fast enough to really enjoy it. It’s a soprano size S.S. Stewart Collegian, and I’m pretty sure its from the 1920s. It has 12 hooks holding the head on. One of the nuts holding the hooks has a...

    mele looks like a steal

    stumbled across this auction, seems almost too good to be true, but I'm holding out for a mainland concert with slotted headstock instead. Thought I'd pass it along. Best of luck...

    banjolele project

    I just finished cleaning up an old S.S. Stewart Collegian banjolele. I added new aquila banjolele strings, replaced the friction tuners, and added a strap nut. I like it a lot, but I can't figure out if I want to keep it with the idea of a new mainland concert coming out soon. For now...

    banjolele wound E string?

    I just got a set of aquila banjolele strings to go with the vintage banjolele I picked up. It came with a wound E string. I've heard of a wound C, but never a wound E. Is this a mislabel or just a folk thing?
