    (Changed my mind) Vintage Martin style 0 soprano

    I am in the process of scaling down my ukulele collection which means that I am selling my vintage Martin style soprano. I bought it in september 2020 from an estate in New York. It had very, very old nylon strings on when it arrived, so - as far as I can tell - it hadn't been played for...

    FS: Flight Voyager Tenor

    I am scaling down my uke collection so I am selling my beloved Flight Voyager tenor. It's the 2nd generation of the Voyager model so it is lighter build than the previous generation.

    NUD: Kiwaya KMT-K

    Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans... Just as I had decided to focus on sopranos (and an occasional concert) for a while, I ran into this irresistible beauty on the Marketplace 🙂 A Kiwaya KMK-T. It sounds and plays absolutely amazing and feels so much like a 1930s...

    Extended fretboard vs. classic fretboard: difference in sound?

    I recently saw someone somewhere on the web claim that the difference between the Kiwaya KTS-4 and the Kiwaya KTS-5 is like "night and day" because of the extended fretboard on the KTS-5. The person claimed that this judgement was based on playing both instruments in a store. What is the general...

    Kiways in D tuning

    Kiwayas in D tuning I feel sad for all the Kiwaya sopranos that were returned because it didn't occur to their owners to use D-tuning :D That was the tuning that was popular for sopranos when Kiwaya began making their instruments - and the Fremont Blackline strings Kiwaya have been using for...
