    Tenor that sounds like the Famous FS-5?

    The KS-5 is a great-sounding instrument. I had one and a famously coveted soprano which shall remain unnamed at the same time. The KS-5 sounded better, but wasn’t as pretty, or solid wood, which could be good or bad. I too would recommend a tenor Kiwaya of some iteration, if you want the Kiwaya...

    Famous-Japan. New Soprano variant

    I really like that one. It looks bigger than a soprano, though.

    Dr, Is there any hope?

    Lovely collection. I wish more people would post a group photo. Who is this Scott Wise of whom you speak? Sorry for your loss.

    Martin T1 Streetmaster Tenor

    Oh sure, I didn’t think about that. You did a good job of describing, they all sound good.

    Martin T1 Streetmaster Tenor

    How would you compare the three Martins? Is the Streetmaster made in Mexico?

    Considering mid to high end sopranos

    You might want to change the title of the post to better reflect what you’re looking for. Get more bites that way. I’m interested too

    Kiwaya KT-3 Info Request

    The easiest thing to do would be to write to Kiwaya and ask them. They’ve always answered my questions quickly. famous@kiwaya.com

    New 2022 Martin C1 Concert Ukulele - Natural , Now in Stock

    He said the core of the C1 is khaya—African mahogany. I don’t like the laser etching, but that’s just me. I think when something like that filters up from cheap Asian imports to Martins, whether made in Mexico or the US, one can safely say it’s now mainstream. If you need a laminate ukulele, it...

    Which Enya Nova uke would you buy?

    I’ve had all three, thanks to various sales at Amazon. I kept the concert. To me it sounded the best and played the easiest. I thought I’d like the tenor best, wanted to like it best, but just didn’t. The metal frets are nice, but didn’t make up for the sound and playability.

    Kapu Series Archtop

    That’s in an entirely new realm. I don’t know where to begin! The inlays are so beautiful, but wait, the tiki god, how’d you do that? And the finish, and construction! Never seen anything like it. What do you think about the process? Do you think you’ll make more that way? Just wow.

    FREE single set of Worth brown CM for soprano

    I’ve done that before, changing strings. Hate it. I’d like them, if they’re available.

    Martin Streetmaster

    That’s a pretty uke, and I stand corrected—I should have qualified that statement. I’d buy that uke if it could make me play like Phil Doleman!
