    #319 Spring Soul

    Welcome to season #319. It is inspired from a minor tragedy that occurred. Last month my 35 year old Drifters Golden Hits cassette tape died that my now deceased father and I both listened to for ages. I also dreadfully missed the opportunity to contribute to the Summer Soul season that...

    A word of caution!

    For background I have been playing for about 4.5 years and have had my hands on about 50 ukes during that time. Hopefully this anecdote can save an injury for someone if this occurs across the whole line. I was interested in getting a soprano Fender Venice and tried one out at my local GC...

    factory pickup comparison?

    Both ukes I am considering are similarly featured and the main comparison IMHO is the factory installed pickup. I can't find a review or comparison online of the two pickups I am considering: the fishman that is in lanikai ukes and the kala pickup. I can't compare both due to lack of local...

    2nd Gen Soprano Risa Stick (w geared tuners)

    selling my beloved risa stick soprano with geared tuners to raise money for a hybrid acoustic/electric that I couldn't otherwise afford. In perfect working order. Some minor denting on the back of the uke from the strap that is hardly noticable because the wood is so pale. Still very...

    Season #217 Shiny Happy 90's Party

    I was going to have a season of people playing the top 30 artists on my playlists but the list ended up being 50 that I wanted to hear from! Also a great number of the artists were around in the 1990's so thought that would be more thematic. I wasn't really into music until the 1990's when...

    Seson 192 Video Games Killed the Radio Star

    Week 192's Theme: Cover a song that has been in a video game, or about video games. I would love if people could try to make musical accompaniment with non-musical instruments like the people that play the music genre games, so get creative for bonus points. Some popular titles for music...

    Audio/Video conversion issues

    Hello I am having issues with the music not syncing with the video after taking the audio from the recorded video and the audio not matching the video after editing when I try to recombine the video with the audio. I was recommended to use a program called handbrake to convert the video to a...

    Tough to not make wah faces when playing with it. haha No other effects were used. Just ukulele into the wah and then straight into the Focusrite 2i2 DI box. This is me depressing the pedal every other quarter roughly(gots to expect it to be rough the first try!)

    Fish and Chips as preamp?

    Hello. I was looking for a signal booster for my passive risa stick as I read there can be a low signal with a longer cable run of over ten feet. My current run is short(2 meters) to compensate and works fine currently, but I am looking to build a pedal board and know that each pedal will add...

    Pedals reviewed!

    Hello everyone. I went to the local music store and tried my Risa electric with a bunch of pedals on a Marshall solid state amp and wanted to share my research to add to our collective knowledge. Please share what pedals worked for you and what ones you tested to build a database. The...

    Which microphone?

    Hello all. I love my Risa stick soprano and have been using it plugged into my audio interface while using the guitar rig 5 demo as a virtual amp. I want more distortion available than that offered by the Fishman(though it is a phenomenal product for acoustic sound) and semi-decided to buy a...

    Season 156 Sell Me Love

    Being someone not naturally inclined for loving, I need some convincing that this is something even I can do. For what chronologically is roughly the end of the third year for Seasons of the Ukulele I was hoping people would spread love and understanding to the world. Any song about love(it...

    Electric uke options

    Hello, I will be buying my electric uke in a couple weeks and wanted to discuss the options, my use, and the room it will be played in predominantly. I record using a USB Yeti microphone and don't have an interface yet. The room is real small(8'x10') and the microphone when on lowest gain...

    tuner test: Presonus Studio One vs. Snark

    I was playing around in my Presonus Studio One software and saw there was a tuner. My Snark tuner is a year old and they didn't match if I was doing things right. Now I have no idea which I should use for tuning. I am too new at using a DAW and have low confidence in my minimal experience...

    Review: Proline Lemon Oil Fretboard Conditioner

    Embarassing to admit, but I have had my uke for a year now and never cleaned it once. I was changing strings so now was the time to treat my Jaina to some fret love. After removing the strings, I scratched near the fret wires and a bit of schmutz that looked like old chocolate came off...

    Review: Martin M600 Soprano/Concert fluorocarbon strings

    Hello. I have been using Aquila re-entrant nylgut strings for most of my time playing(one year now!) and decided it was time to branch out and experiment with some new strings. Buying Martin strings is as close as I ever will be to owning a real Martin uke so why not? Testing done on my...
