    Enya Taimani Tenor

    A replica of what the artist plays would cost a fortune. Many performers and YouTube people have signature ukes. Some are better than others. This Enya seems to be one of the better ones. I like the five strings and two low-Gs. I see I misspelled Taimane. I'm going to blame that on...

    Eyes on it? 😁

    One-Piece Double Tuners

    A friend has a uke he bought in Portugal, and it has two tuners attached to one plate. I've seen that on guitars, but I don't think I've ever seen it on a uke. Do any of you have a uke with tuners like that? I have several sets of those tuners that I thought I'd use on something - someday.

    That's a beauty, especially the back!

    plastic ukes?

    Consider the price and how often she will be using it. I don't know the price of these offhand, but I bet there's a substantial difference. Look for reviews and comparisons. Nice! I have a green one full of lights. The battery pack is Velcroed to the back.

    I have my eyes on an 8-stringed ukulele

    Go for it. Eight strings are twice as good as four. 😋 You play it just the same, but tuning takes a bit longer. Still, guitars have six strings, so you would have just two more.

    Enya Taimani Tenor

    I guess I missed that. As Baz said, sometimes, all a "Signature Ukulele" means is the person's name is on it. This one had input from Taimane.

    The Ukulele (not a word) Game

    If I knew that, I would have only one uke.

    Hiding Behind an Amplifier.

    As far as I'm concerned, any good uke sounds good, but they all sound just a bit different from each other. I would never go out of my way to buy a ukulele because it sounds 20% better than one I have. That's like saying Elvis sounds 20% better than Jerry Lee Lewis. If you like the looks and...

    Enya Taimani Tenor

    I saw a review yesterday by Barry Maz - Enya Taimani Tenor. He liked it. Looking on Amazon, I see it comes in black and blue - individually, not like it's been beaten up. ;) It's also available in 4-string and 5-string (double low-G), and with or without the electronics. Prices range from...

    Thinking about getting a pad

    I use a Kindle Fire for all my songbooks. I paid $12 for MusicSheets Pro, and it works great. I've paid roughly $50 - $150 for 8" and 10" Kindles. Compare that with $750 - $900 for an iPad. Try to get "hands-on" experience with them before you buy. At a session last night, everyone had a...

    NUD: Brüko soprano and Cort soprano

    Bruko makes nice ukes. I have a maple one.

    Wonky Tuner

    I like Shark tuners, but one of mine is acting wonky. Sometimes, all it will show is F with yellow lines to the right, like F+. If I turn it off and restart it, it will be fine. It can be frustrating when tuning, though. It acted up when I lent it to someone, and she had a tough time until I...

    New Music Stand

    Thanks for the recommendation of the K&M music stand. It arrived yesterday from B&H Photo $26.29 (no sales tax), and it's just what I was looking for. This will be perfect for uke fests. When folded, it's just 15.5" long, and it weigh 2.25 pounds. There's another one made of aluminum, nut...

    NUD

    That looks very nice. You couldn't bargain them down to a lower price? :LOL:

    NUD

    Looks nice. I've seen that online. So it's a "Donner" Rising. I thought "Dinner Rising" sounded close to disgusting. I have a Donner mahogany. Nice instruments.

    Wtf Uke

    I have one of them upstairs in my garage. I won't be using it, but it's too heavy to sell and mail.

    Webcam for uke videos

    I've seen online videos made with all sorts of cameras. Many fulltime YouTubers use cell phones and many use the GoPro. The most important ingredient is the setup. Don't have the camera facing a bright light source. Many use good lighting - umbrellas and large light sources. Avoid having...

    New Uke Opening Up

    I've been hearing that your years - the uke opens up over time the more you play it. I've never experienced that, probably because I don't play one uke enough. It just seems too much like magic to me. I think you would need sophisticated audio equipment to tell the difference.

    No Strings Attached

    I like to decorate ukes, especially Fleas and Flukes. Yesterday, I brought a Fluke to the weekly painting meeting. My plan is to paint it to become a Winter Fluke. One of the women there asked, "Do you play the ukulele?" I said, "You notice it has no strings. That on purpose." I had no...
