    slight change to Uke Crazy polyfoam cases

    Just got a concert size, presumably new stock, and instead of the velcro hold down strap there is a small foam block inside the top, that presses down when closed to hold the uke in place. It is visible in pics on the kala website. I like it. I don't like stiff velcro (or other sharp stuff)...

    SpaceX Inspiration4 Martin ukulele

    Haven’t seen this mentioned here… a Martin ukulele is going up with next week’s launch, and will be sold as a fundraiser. Maybe they make replicas down the road like the konter. A search will bring up plenty of stories, here's one: https://www.guitarworld.com/news/martin-ukulele-space-x-expedition

    SOLD-SOLD-SOLD-SOLD-SOLD-SOLD Kiwaya KSU-1L long neck soprano in excellent condition with original fluorocarbon strings and bag.

    Any interest in a Kala Elite 1KOA-C solid koa concert?

    Really nice looking koa, especially for a "1" model. Includes everything it came with- certificate, heavy Kala transit case and D'addario humidifier (unused). Just can't get used to the wider nut (1.5"), neck and string spacing. $600 shipped anywhere in the CONUS.

    Who started tiny and skinny ukes? And when?

    Since I have one of each, I'm wondering who started (and who popularized, if different) the tiny (sopranino and smaller) and thin body ukuleles? I know Ohana is currently the big name for tiny (production) ukes and Kala seems to have the deepest line for skinny ones. How far back do their...

    Kala EMTU vs SSTU thin/travel ukes

    Has anyone compared both? I have the SSTU concert and know it is very loud and bright...but maybe too bright for me, so I'm wondering how the laminate sounds. Search found nothing. Thanks.

    For sale is a Kala KA-SSTU-C, solid spruce top, thinline/travel in concert size. I bought it used and it does show use; a few very minor bumps as seen in the last pics. Previous owner was unsure on setup, but it feels good and the action is good (2.5mm at 12th fret as I measure it). Comes...

    suggestions for strings for Enya HPL?

    I have an Enya X1M concert, and it serves it purpose. But like others have noticed, it's on the quiet side. So I'm wondering if there are any strings that might increase this uke's volume. The stock (fluorocarbon?) strings were OK (not the greatest but OK) for me, except for the volume. I...
