    What is the point of plastic ukes?

    Short answer: no need for hygrometer & futzing with /adjusting ambient humidity levels come shoulder season/fall, when heaters get turned on. Enya Nova also have an advantage other plastics lack: compensated saddle for more precise intonation up the fretboard. Some Flight TUS models have...

    Seaguar Blue Label samples - got what I wanted, thanks!

    apparently I wrote this on another thread Jan 2019 (might wanna double check against published specs): “…Outdoor Ukulele Moonshine w/ D'addario carbons on them, including a low-G, which has the same specs (diameter) as Seaguar Blue 100lb & Seaguar Premier 130. Both published diameters are 1.05...

    It’s a bummer/seems dumb that USPS media mail rates exclude Canada, Mexico.

    disappointed in my new Kamaka HF-2 Concert Ukulele

    Kamaka is responsive to emails which, unlike phone calls, can include photos & videos to help evaluate potential options. If you have a ruler with mm markings, action at various places can be noted, photographed. The more data to evaluate, the better FWIW, I bought a new Kamaka HF-3 online...

    disappointed in my new Kamaka HF-2 Concert Ukulele

    Saddles often must be cut for individual ukuleles. And for Kamakas, are definitely not plastic. Consider finding someone with depth & breadth of experience with acoustic guitar/ukulele lutherie… or buy from a place like TheUkuleleSite.com where they are used to international buyers and have very...

    Recommendations for reputable online stores and brands for a newbie please!

    Best wishes on your quest… Keep in mind, I n this day & age, with supply chain impacted heavily & for long duration/foreseeable future by not just COVID19 but labor, lack of availability for components, on multiple continents, it’s best for a prospective buyer to be open to online buying. Bricks...

    Recommendations for reputable online stores and brands for a newbie please!

    The Blue Arona & Quiet Shade UC10 colors are sorta impossible to find outside of Taiwan… Golden Glow seems so fitting for autumn 🍂 . Living Coral seems so springy, unless in the tropics. Almond milk goes with everything.

    What's Up With The New "Points" Thing By Posters?

    No one is making others seek validation, via ”like” buttons. “Like“ can but doesn’t necessarily constitute actual affinity for, as it can be just a marker of a specific comment, acknowledgement, or whatever. Many intelligent users of Twitter (which has only 1 rxn button) have something variation...

    What's Up With The New "Points" Thing By Posters?

    Just curious… is the point/trophy system not ignorable for you? As an aside, forum point/trophy systems are important for well regulated medical forums… and could be good for forums where the topic isn’t as critical. I noticed a lot of BS & patently false statements on other forums (acoustic...

    Impressions of the HMS Membership Lessons

    I signed up for membership solely to support HMS. One of the reasons I can imagine how their membership thing evolved was to have a way for people who were to support HMS independent of constantly buying ukuleles from them. Haven’t even used the free shipping. If I wanted a more comprehensive...
