    If you're really concerned about the tension, you could use concert length Gs instead. is another good resource. There was a string tension chart thread put together by a member a few months ago in the Forum. Maybe you could use that to mix and match strings to get a...

    Should I Sell or Should I Trade?

    You can always put them up to sell but say you're open to trades. Who knows, you might get an offer for something intriguing. Or, you can sell them and get something that's a step up with the money you get for both.

    Any Way to Print or Save a Thread?

    We used to be able to save or print an entire thread. In the "Thread Tools." Now, I don't see any way to print or save anything. I can use Firefox's "Save As" or "Print" but the results haven't been very good. Except copy and paste into a different format. Or do a screen shot. Am I missing...

    Which renowned Luthier uses x bracing?

    I agree with Ripock. If I like the sound of the tenor, I don't care which bracing method the builder uses.* *Unless there is a history of the sound boards getting wavy or developing a belly.

    Hi from new member in NJ

    I find Fremont BlackLine mediums to be pretty easy on the hands. Very bendy.

    Ukulele/ Bluegrass festival?

    When I went two years ago it was fun to see some of the Bluegrass acts. Though I did tire of the electric saw after a few songs. A lot of spontaneous Bluegrass jams going on in the Hotel. Not so much with ukes. Lil' Rev had some excellent seminars and an outstanding performance. All-in-all an...

    Brace yourself...

    I think that the fact that most concert and tenor, and even soprano ukes now have two-piece backs and soundboards must have affected the way they are braced. I would think that the fretboards that sit on the upper part of the soundboard will also affect the bracing. Solid kerfing is also very...

    What is the point of plastic ukes?

    Depends on the wooden uke. The inside of the body is not finished. It's raw wood. As are most fretboards and bridges. The thin soundboard is the most vulnerable part of a ukulele. If it gets a little damp on the outside and you wipe it off quickly, most lkely there won't be a problem. If it gets...

    Brace yourself...

    I have owned a 2004 Ko'Aloha Crown Bridge tenor; currently own a 2017 KTM-00; and had the opportunity to play and compare a 2019(?) KTM-00. The unibrace has indeed evolved. The 2004 was fairly thick and positioned close to the sound hole. The 2017 was thinner, the hole was bigger, and it was...
