    A well used Magic Fluke: First impressions

    I had a fluke early on and resold it, mostly because I saw that the fretboard was wearing, much faster than I really anticipated. I sold it and moved on. But it would be nice to have another fluke with the upgraded fretboard. I had a flea for a while too and sold it since I liked the fluke...

    Anybody Use MuseScore?

    What I *did* was to create a new score with Solo -> Guitar + Tablature, then change to 4 line tab and Ukulele instrument. Never saw anyting about linking in the musescore stuff. I did see a video where someone created a treble cleff using Piano voice, then used 'I' to add a linked but separate...

    foot tambourines - meinl type.

    I got a couple of these recently and thought I would start a thread. The "big three" I know of are the Latin Percussion, the Meinl classic and (newer) compact foot tambourines. A couple weeks back I ordered the compact meinl and instead received a "classic". The store shipped out the correct...

    rondo music electric uke (steel strings)

    Just saw this posted over at talk bass in the ubass section. Looks like an electric uke with dual humbucker pickups. Might be a little on the steep side though, and no truss rod I can see: http://www.rondomusic.com/product8640.html

    any books similar to tony mizen?

    I just picked up a used Cordoba Mini M from craigslist after selling a concert fluke. I was wondering if there's any books similar to the tony mizen books or similar classical guitar resources. I've only played uke and decided to try my hand at one of these small guitars.

    Did the gig with the Carvin amp.

    okay, that jack is tuner/phones combined. I guess sort of like line out. Interesting the carvin doesn't use a speakon connector. The way its set up (the phone/tuner out and ext speaker are both 1/4" and right next to each other) one could easily and accidentally plug something into the ext...

    plastic sopranino??

    With the sudden outpouring of lots of plastic ukes in the past couple of years I'm surprised no one has done a plastic sopranino yet. The sell of plastic is for durable portability... I found a video of a 50's plastic sopranino being played here:

    lu21b stock aquila string order

    For various reasons I'm trying to put the factory aquila strings back on my lu21b. When I got it I immediately put worth browns on it but want to try the original. The strings have 2 wounds, one silver and one copper/gold colored. I had the gold string in the 'd' packet and the silver in the...

    martin oxk fix?

    So I came home today and noticed a my oxk was buzzing. Apparently somebody (kids) weren't careful and knocked it into the floor or something. It looks like it split at the joint between the top and side. Suggestion for fix or better to bring this in?

    Rubin ukes? Tom Uke?

    hokay did something dumb and bought a "factory item". What made it a "factory item" is to me not noticeable. For fun I posted pics of the saddle of one I already set up and also this new one before going after it. One fret has some fuzz from the wood on it under the G string. Under the...

    Rubin ukes? Tom Uke?

    unnecessary unboxing video: update: so far so good. I took almost 3mm off the saddle, got the strings to 2mm off the 12th fret. intonation is good up the frets. these strings must be fake aquilas. they feel squeaky just like the bugsgears and take forever to settle. I'm messing with it...

    Rubin ukes? Tom Uke?

    We'll see. I bit the bullet and bought an acacia sopranino from rubin's ebay store as well as a soft case. I've sort of been UAS'ing since messing with this kala travel ukulele (with my daughter here):
