    Microphone is janky, help

    What model Lenovo? If you are not using the computer's internal mic, an external mic should plug into the mic jack, not the headphone's. If there is no mic jack (my Surface 3 does not have one) you would need to use a USB mic. Or, are you using a mic+headset that only has one cable?

    Oops I'm developing UAS

    I watched a few of Sergey's videos. It sounds to me like he can sing a low D (1 step below a standard bass low E). That would put you into a drop-D tuning or 5-string (BEADG) territory. I tried detuning my steel wound over nylon uke bass - it worked, but just barely. Another problem is that...

    How would you make a ukulele sound like an electric guitar?

    If you want just a touch of edginess, try a TC Electronic Spark mini (only 1 knob) booster. Up to halfway, it's a very clean boost. Past halfway, it does not get louder but does introduce some "refined and subtle" overdrive. The bypass switch also functions an a "boost only as long as you...

    tuning options for baritone

    I love dropped C, as in CGBE. Makes really lush chords. Examples (the "0" in 1220 is the string closest to the floor): A 1220 - D 2232 - E 4100 (A-D-E) C 0010 - F 0211 - G 2003 (C-F-G) B 3402 or 3442 (for E-A-B) Bb 2331 (for F-Bb-C) From above is: D-G-A, E-A-B, G-C-D Cm 0543 Dm 2231 Em 4000...

    Slotted Bridge...Wound String

    This is a D'addario .028w in a slotted bridge. A knot with a larger diameter than .028" may not fit under, and/or the string may be too wide to go into the slot without damaging the slot.

    U bass - looking for a recommendation

    Oh, the soprano...

    Low G on Soprano Scale Length GDAE is same as violin/mandolin. The low G is the same as soprano low G. Here's what resulted in the best string balance for me: Caramel CS419 GDAE Solid Mahogany Top Laminate sides and back D'Addario J6801 .028w (It needed the brightness and attack of the...

    Help I can't stop noodling!

    A lot of "noodling" in this discussion :) That's good. I spent about 2 years noodling around just learning chords that are used in most common sequences: (Maj, Dom7, min, min7, dim 7, and Maj7) in all "playable" keys. (For me, it's C-D-Eb-E-F-G-A-Bb.) During that time I collected perhaps a...

    Water Resistant For Pacific Northwest Misty Winters

    I really like my Flight TUS55 Mango. Very easy action with a full-bodied tone. I'll probably get the TUS55 Amara for another tuning. About $60 shipped on Amazon.

    Need new saddle for Harmony Baritone Uke

    I'll start. Loosen the strings to where you can easily move the saddle in the slot. Is it sloppy, or does it fit (stands up at a 90-degree angle) nicely in the slot? If it fits well, you will then need to measure (with a caliper) its thickness (how it fits in the slot), its height (how far...
