    Audio interface & Ubass

    Hi I bought a Korg M2 audio interface and wonder what's the best way to connect my Kala Arcacia bass . It's the old model without preamp. Should I use jack to XLR or jack to jack (instrument) for the best audio quality? I have a DI box and a Behringer ADI 21 too. Thanks

    I have a Tokyo Luna model 400. It’s a good little soprano �� (For trade to a concert or longneck soprano, my hands are to big for soprano size)

    aNueNue Light Bird Tenor - exclusive to World Of Ukes - REVIEW

    I just got my aNueNue Light Bird Tenor from World of Ukes this morning :-) and I'm very impressed. Neck width at the nut is 36mm and it comes with a slightly radiused fretboard. I can't put it down. String spacing is the the same as my Kanilea K1 tenor, so the distance to edge of the G and A...

    Uke Storage - Hanging?

    A suitable wood molding and wood pole will do the job: The climate in here (Denmark) is not a problem for solid wood ukes. I always play my ukes in turns :-)

    Found bridge pins for my Kanile'a

    I’ve finally found nice bridge pins for my kanilea k1 tenor (2016) that fits without the need of sanding. Graphtech GT PP 2000. Btw. They don’t fit on my 2011 concert K1 (bigger holes) but maybe the “traditional style” will. I like them;)...

    NUD: Koaloha KCM-00

    I just bought this fantastic sounding concert. It's from april 2017 and I bought it used. I've read about the “Better than the Weather Warranty", can anyone explain what this mean? Is it valid even if I bought it used and don't have the original receipt? It came with Gotoh UPT tuners installed...

    Ohana TK-35, Kala SMHT, or Pono AT/MT?

    I have a Mainland red cedar tenor too, it has the exact same dimensions as the TK35. High action is no concern, it'an easy fix. Mine came with a perfect set up. Here's a photo of the TK 35 and a Mainland neck. I suspect they come from the same factory.
