    New 2022 Martin C1 Concert Ukulele - Natural , Now in Stock

    C1 should be selling at about $250 at the most, really odd addition, IMHO. Would definitely spend another $50 for the C1K! https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/index.php?threads/new-2022-martin-c1-concert-ukulele-natural-now-in-stock.154577/

    Why string a baritone gcea?

    I bought a cheapo vintage baritone a few years ago intending to string it with GCEA, it just didn't sound very good...IMHO. I restrung it as a baritone and it sounded very good, I thought, so I sold it to a friend, since I don't know how to play baritone.

    Tell me the truth, Doc. How bad is it?

    Post this over in Luthiers Lounge... https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/index.php?forums/ukulele-building-luthiers-lounge.30/ If it was me, I'd take it to a luthier. Since you don't have one close by, look up a video on fixing cracks with hot hide glue. Humidify it and see if they will close...

    Been absent for a while

    Voltaren is great, but takes a couple days to take effect and you have to keep it up. Aspercreme works, too and it's pretty much instant, easier to use! Edit: Voltaren is more for arthritis and Aspercreme more for nerve isssues. I have both...

    Opinions? Martin S1, Martin OXK, or Martin C1k?

    The C1K is an excellent instrument, head and shoulders above the others. (I used to have one, the only reason I sold it was to get a Hawaiian made uke)

    Given up tenor due to hand pain/arthritis?

    I have a Martin IZ tenor, the nut width is narrower than normal, even for a soprano. I was never a fan of tenor because of the longer fret spacing, but got one for low G. At first it was a little weird to get used to, but now I like it and I think it's easier to play than my concert, which...

    Can You Jam?

    I can't jam in the way you describe it, wish I could! A friend, who is a piano player can jam along on her uke with anybody, I am so envious! I just can't get the hang of it. Too dumb, I guess...

    Does Mim charge sales tax?

    Probably depends on your state...I think online sellers are required to pay sales tax in the state they ship to.

    loudest strings you've tried?

    I've tried a lot of strings and volume was never an issue, don't think I've ever noticed much difference.
