    A very good friend just got a very nice deal on a Silvertone baritone that is in very nice condition. He wants to keep it low D. Does anyone have experience with what set from what brand would work well. Currently it has a wound nickel and a wound brass he says. The B string was actually in tune...

    Voice and electric uke through mixer

    Anyone had any half way decent luck recording with a Yeti and electric uke simultaneously into GB using a mixer? I understand that the microphone will pick up the electric uke, in this case really a Ubass, but maybe a noise gate can filter out some of this noise. By no means a perfect studio...

    Who Was That Masked Man?

    I write using a Ubass. I write and record a bass track and then add lyrics with my vocals. Then my song writing partner comes in and adds guitar and brings in a drummer to add drums or he plays the drums himself. Sometimes we add a sax player. Sometimes we add keys. Sometimes we overdub vocals...

    Hadean Halloween bass

    https://youtu.be/rUL0b7pNZtw The bass I’m playing is a Hadean bass. I wrote a bass line and recorded it on Garage Band. Then I added vocals on other tracks, following my bass line. Then I sent my work to my multi instrumentalists song writing partner and he added all of the rest. Another...

    Belt marks on back of Kanilea tenor for sale

    Every time I try to post it doesn’t include everything I write. Added some photos. Very faint. Have to turn the uke to see them in a certain light. This is a beautifully sounding uke.

    Considering selling a Kanilea K-1

    I have a Kanilea K-1 that I love. It has a beautiful sound. Everyone, even with more expensive custom ukes, loves its sound but I don’t play it much. It has a few minor nicks here and there. I only would consider selling if I could get a decent price. Basically I only play bass and my Pono...

    Happy medium in singing and strumming

    Generally I strum my uke with my index finger/thumb and sing along and all is fine in the world. Sometimes I use a pick and wow--it sounds so much better/stronger/louder. BUT it's hard to compete with the louder volume with my singing. Is there a happy medium? Strum lighter?! Bottom line--sure...

    Not for the faint hearted

    I want to show you what a little Ubass can do. Warning: It might not be your kind of music. I love classical, jazz, folk, soul, r and b, country, World, but I also grew up with rock and funk, etc.. Anyway, this isn't Hawaiian even though I live in Waikiki. The Jorgensen, Latini, Leonardi...

    Great Free material, a course in chord tones

    What if I were to tell you that with a half an hour’s practice daily, even 15 minutes, you could learn all the note names of your bass fretboard, including flats, and simultaneously you could learn the fingering for the major triads of all of these fretboard notes? What if I were to tell you...

    Advantages of fret less Ubass?

    What are the advantages of a fretless Ubass? I would guess that one big advantage is sliding between notes but I don’t find the frets on a fretted Ubass interfere with sliding. There are fretless basses with marked frets and without. Obviously for a beginner having marked frets on a fretless...
