    Private Conversations/Messaging

    Is there no way to have a private conversation with another member? I have tried to have one with sellers in the marketplace and with members on topics, and the next thing I know it shows up in a side window with many other topics and posters.

    What happened to all of the wood hard cases?

    I was looking for a couple of good quality tenor wood hard cases. The supplies seem to be pretty sparse right now. Did it become too costly to make them? In materials or finding skilled builders? Even O'ahu case company's selection and availability has dwindled on the HMS website. It's been...

    "The Tree" and "Lucky Strike"

    Kerneltime's NUD post about his new Hive Hornet reminded me about the original Luthiers For A Cause project in 2017.

    New Pono Master Series Tenors

    Received an email from HMS with some of the new ukuleles they've gotten in. They were heavily touting the New Master Series of Ponos. Of which, the big thing is a Lattice bracing on the tops.

    If You Had it to Do All Over Again, What Would be Your Starter Uke? And Why?

    I was thinking about this as I was answering Kriden's question about what uke to get. What would I buy if I was just starting out? So, what would you buy NEW if you had a set budget? What would you get for that very first learner ukulele? And why? If your budget (USD) was: • Up to $150 • Up...

    Tone Woods In Depth

    Alex from the Southern Ukulele Store in the UK has his own blog called, "Ukes With Alex." He did one segment in May called "Ukulele Tone Woods In Depth." It's worth a listen. I don't agree with some of his observations, but overall it's pretty good. I'm curious about what you all think?

    Anybody know if Iluak is still in business? I Have installed their strap buttons on several of my tenors. Because I like the hidden screw on them. Great people. They even made a pair for me to better match the Koa Binding and Abalone inlay on one of my tenors. I sent them a picture of the...
