    Who's not played a Kamaka soprano?

    The sound is just how I imagine a uke should sound like. There's a certain sound that I associate with the uke: warm, mellow, punchy with a bit of shimmer and some clarity. Although we hear/interpret sounds a bit differently, see if you hear it in the strummed Kamaka soprano. It is a perfect...

    Travel or beater instruments

    I normally don't travel with my ukulele because I don't get much chance to play it. However, when I do, I just take the uke that I normally play. Ukes are so small that I don't see the point of a travel uke (I had a Kala travel soprano before, and it was useless because I still just take my...

    new snark tuners

    Hard Cases vs Gig Bags

    I only use hardcases for my ukes because they are pretty small and convenient. I carry my ukes around a lot; and hardcases are actually faster access and easier to store. This is totally different than guitars, where I prefer gig bags for carrying them to places because those hardcases are...

    Inflation Q, rethinking high end…

    Inflation just makes everything (well, the affected things) more expensive. So, a previous $1k uke now cost $1k + inflation. If that previous uke was considered high-end, then it's still considered high-end. So, inflation doesn't have much to do with high-end definitiion. What is high-end...

    Ask the person after you a random question

    Back then home broadband was pretty expensive; I think mine was $150/mon for DSL with 128kbps down stream and 64kbps up (my company paid for it otherwise I wouldn't have it). It was the days of CLECs. Prices quickly fell; being $75/mon around 2000/2002 time frame with cable becoming cheaper and...

    Well, in that case, I'm sure there's a person o UU that's thanking you.... for taking on the joys of a new uke away from him/her! I _ALMOST_ bought a vintage Martin from that thread that somebody posted. I replied with something nice and decided that if it's not sold the next day, I'll buy it...
