    Mainland Red Cedar Soprano B-Stock

    I got this a month or so ago....I really like it, but I think I maybe overdid myself on the UAS. This is b-stock because of minor blemishes. The real blemish is the nick in the soundboard just south of the fretboard as in the picture. This uke is solid, and wholly intact. She is a player...

    Kanilea Islander Soprano with a little Mainland comparison

    Got this in the mail today... She is a real beauty, just like in the picures. The tortoise accents and rosette along with the string pins make this one hot mamma. She's an all mahogany uke, came equipped with standard aquilas, pre-stretched and ready to rock. The action is a little high which...

    Mainland Red Cedar Soprano

    I picked up one of these little beauties from the blemished pile...we wont discuss the blemish because nobody cares about it, but the ukulele looks awesome. A few years ago was completely of the Tenor mindset and was anti-rope binding...it is interesting how things change. This little...

    Eleuke Pedal board

    I havent gotten my eleuke yet, but its a solid body... I was gonna set it up for a pedal board, but trying to get some experienced opinions on this. I was really thinking of an acoustic rig like the fishman aura spectrum or something, but I'm not sure that would be an appropriate match for a...

    Absolutely Speechless...

    I had posted maybe a week ago about what a difficult year its been...and it really has been difficult. I went deaf in one ear earlier this year, then later I lost wife, family, house, job, and had to sell all my instruments minus one guitar. Alas, that's just a recap and not at all what this...

    Uke Withdrawl

    I aint been on in a while, but thought I'd drop a note to let you know that I havent forgotten about this place, nor have I lost my love for the uke. I went through an incredibly painful divorce, and had to sell nearly all my instruments. I aint had a uke in about six months...it sucks. With...

    chord progressions

    I've always been a hack hobbyist...it was years until someone told me the basic progression was I, IV, V with the minors on 2nd, 3rd, and 6th. What are some other progressions I can hang my hat on that may be variations of this or others that are entirely different. circle of 5ths? I know...

    Cutaway or not?

    I'm curious as to people opinions on cutaways...I've always loved cutaways for the pure aesthetics and told myself that I need that space for my shredding. I got a full bodied uke...and its its great. The two ukes though are too "apples and oranges" for a fair comparison. I'd like to hear if...

    Camera Fright

    Sooo I can play in front of people on a regular basis with little problem, but if I sit down with a video camera for...oh, I dont know...the Mya Moe Contest, I get all jittery and clumsy like a caffeinated pregnant woman with loose joints. It's like the camera is causing electrical interference...
