    Clara or Flea Travels and Durability

    so, if I'm reading the room correctly, the top choices are: 1) take the flea or 2) bring a chromatic tuner and buy a cheapie somewhere... looks like no one is in favor of the clara. It is a little nicer flea in that it has the wood fretboard and peghead tuners, but this is the one I leave...

    Clara or Flea Travels and Durability

    I'm not really worried about humidity. Rather, I'm curious about people's experiences traveling (and flying) with a loose uke, not in a gig bag or hard case, but just in a backpack. I'm traveling with my family and they bring a lot of gear, so I try not to. The necks and bodies seem pretty...

    Clara or Flea Travels and Durability

    So, we're leaving for two weeks in Hawaii (Kauai and Big Island). I'm thinking of bringing either my Blackbird Clara or Concert Flea, BUT without a case. In other words, I would stick it in my backpack with the headstock sticking out the top. I like to travel light and don't want to bring a...

    fake kamaka?

    What are you calling vintage? The new ones are pretty nice and I think they’ve made some improvements over the years. What size are you looking for? Standard (soprano), concert or tenor?

    Cool Vintage Kamaka on Reverb

    That’s pretty cool. I don’t understand the pick guard thing. Is it possible that they Shaved down that area of the soundboard and attached a pick guard which later fell off?

    Garage Sale Kamaka

    Looks like a nice vintage gold label soprano (standard) uke. Cool find. Yes, you will have to get the nut repaired. Most nuts are not made out of wood any longer and I would think it is a relatively inexpensive fix. How much did you pay for it? Are there any other cracks or scratches, that...

    Kanile’a 2022 Platinum

    My first thought is how much? looks great. My second thought was they should have dyed a maple soundboard blue and had the waterfall going all the way down the fretboard. my third thought is what it means for ukulele underground. finally, glad to see them switch to worth strings…
