    Fiddle Pick-up Question: Open to Source Pick-up for Magic Fluke Cricket Fiddle?

    I am seriously considering getting a Magic Fluke Cricket Fiddle. I don't usually (or ever, really) do any recording, but if I did I would think that one installed by MF would have advantages? I sort of would rather than add it but not need it that need it but didn't add it on the initial...

    Friday Aloha... Mr. Kanile'a & a few other tenors &...

    The guy way on the left w/ the black hoody is pretty amazing too (understatement)... more than for just his music (understatement). This is one of those times where I've chosen to ask for forgiveness (if needed) rather than ask these guys if I can post this... Mr. Kanile'a's personal uke is...

    How to define "Hawaiian Sound"? What makes an Ukulele "Sound Hawaiian"? Discuss: How would uke experienced &/or native/long-term Hawaiian uke players would describe what they mean by "that Hawaiian sound"... It's clear that Hawaiian ukuleles have a distinctly different sound from Tahitian...

    G-Sharp Guitar (18 Frets, 530mm scale length)

    Went to see John Gorka live last night (for the 1st time in decadeS)...

My video missed some of his commentary on...

And just now, they went & picked up one of the ukes (right after coffee #1) & tried out a new...

    I'm rehydrating an early-ish Kamaka White label soprano, using two dampits inside the ukulele & simple humidifiers outside, all now sitting in a plastic tub inside a plastic bag. I'm planning on having a crack repair done in 3 weeks or so. I put a hygrometer probe inside the uke. Is it safe to...

    2nd Uke ever - Special K

    One thing led to another last week & a half... I somehow ordered four ukuleles. Make that five as of last night. Not a zillionaire. Timing, opportunity (a very very fair one) & life just aligned. This is the 2nd one to arrive. 2nd uke ever. For my 1st "real" uke, I wanted a high quality uke...
