    Flight Ultra Soprano Travel Ukulele

    I had the same thought! The Southern Ukulele Store did a video featuring the Flight UTS-35 Ultra Travel Ukulele and the Enya Nova U Concert. Not exactly an apples to apples comparison, but close. To hear sound samples side by side, go to 2:39 and 5:20.

    Flight Ultra Soprano Travel Ukulele

    Got A Ukulele reviewed the Flight UTS-35 Ultra Travel Ukulele - sounds promising! https://www.gotaukulele.com/2023/01/flight-uts-35-ultra-travel-ukulele.html I've really enjoyed my Flight TUS-35 Travel Soprano with a laminate top. I'm hoping Flight has plans for a concert size Ultra. I think a...

    Low G on an Enya Nova? Seeking String Advice

    I reached out To Oasis Inc. to ask about the string gauges of their All Fluorocarbon Low G Sets, they replied: The only difference between the two sets is the UKE-8101’s first string measures .023”. UKE-8001F Bright All Fluorocarbon Strings, Low G 1st .0215” 2nd .027” 3rd .030” 4th .0355”...

    Oasis warm vs living water

    I haven't tried them, but Oasis also has All Fluorocarbon Low G sets: 8001F Bright or 8101F Warm. Would love to hear from anybody who has given either a strum, pick or plunk. I'd also like to know if anybody has a preference for Oasis warm or bright and why. Thanks!

    Low G on an Enya Nova? Seeking String Advice

    Great discussion! I had the same question and reached out to Enya in November 2022. They wrote back: "The Nova U is compatible with unwound strings. Please see the Enya unwound low G strings here." I asked if the slot in the nut would need to be modified to accommodate their low G and if I...

    Enya Nova U case options

    It sounds like Spindock has found a gig bag that'll work for him, terrific! I don’t know how long they’ve been available, but in November 2022 my Enya Nova U Concert, came with a clamshell case that has a single shoulder strap. It’s adjustable but it may not be long enough for everybody to use...

    Where to buy a ukulele in Atlanta GA?

    Thank you! I'll pass that along and I just might paint a ukulele myself! I'd love to see a forum thread where people shared ukuleles they've painted. (is "PIY" a thing?”) Have you ever come across one? If it doesn't exist, I'm nominating you (@Oldscruggsfan) to start one!

    Where to buy a ukulele in Atlanta GA?

    @Oldscruggsfan LOVE your Yowling Ginger Tom DIY! Coincidentally, my friend also paints (attached pink rabbit with tiny house is one of hers.) What kind of paint did you use? Did you do anything to prep the surface before painting?

    Where to buy a ukulele in Atlanta GA?

    Just a little update. I talked to my friend over Facetime and she showed me her ukulele. The brand is ADM - besides the name on the headstock, it's pretty much identical to my brother's inexpensive but playable uke. When I saw that it has friction tuners, I showed her how to adjust them so that...

    Where to buy a ukulele in Atlanta GA?

    Thank you! I’ve seen a zillion ukulele demos posted by Uke Republic on YouTube, I didn’t know that they're near Atlanta. Excellent suggestion!

    Where to buy a ukulele in Atlanta GA?

    A friend who lives in Atlanta bought a ukulele at Ross Dress For Less for $15 and she doesn't understand why it won't stay in tune. I told her that in most instances, a $15 ukulele Is something you hang on the wall, not something you play. Where should she go in Atlanta to buy a ukulele? A good...

    Low G for Rebel Mango Double Cream Soprano?

    A search for "La Bella 908" on stringsbymail.com worked for me too.

    Low G for Rebel Mango Double Cream Soprano?

    I've had a La Bella 908 Classical Guitar 4th String on my Rebel Mango Soprano for a week and I'd say it's a success! The volume of the La Bella is very close to the fluorocarbon C, E and A strings and the tone blends. Most of my ukuleles are re-entrant so a Low G soprano is a fun alternative. It...

    Low G for Rebel Mango Double Cream Soprano?

    CPG! Wow!! I looked up your KoAloha Long Neck Pineapple Marketplace listing and listened to your Low G sound sample. It does indeed sound really great! I'd encourage you to post this video on your YouTube channel. Your video is a terrific example that with the right ukulele, Low G soprano is...

    Low G for Rebel Mango Double Cream Soprano?

    My Rebel soprano has a 14" scale and the KoAloha longneck pineapple is 15.25" so I think that'll work! Great to know the Fremont Soloist and the La Bella 908 are the same string - the 908 is less than half the price. Wahoo!

    Low G for Rebel Mango Double Cream Soprano?

    Thanks manOa! Do you happen to know the uncut length of a La Bella 908? Would it be long enough for a soprano and a concert scale long neck soprano?

    Low G for Rebel Mango Double Cream Soprano?

    Hmmm. Interestingly, I have a KoAloha Long Neck Pineapple. Maybe I should get a La Bella 908 classical guitar string, cut it in half and try it on both the Rebel and the KoAloha!

    Low G for Rebel Mango Double Cream Soprano?

    I've dreamed of a small low G ukulele so I've tried it on a few sopranos. The results haven't been great. I just got a Rebel Mango Double Cream Matte Soprano and I'm impressed by the fullness of the sound and the sustain. It occurred to me it might be a good candidate. Would love to hear from...

    Do you "name" your ukulele?

    I don’t exactly name my ukuleles but I put dog tags on my ukulele cases. This started when I lost my keys and had a tag made with a name I might give a dog (if I had one) and my phone number. I didn’t want to put my full name and address on my keychain, who wants uninvited visitors? After...
