    Honolulu airport prohibits playing musical instruments

    At the Lihue ariport (Kauai), they pay professional musicians to play live Hawaiian music in the terminals, and they have semi-permanent PA's for them. I respectfully kept my uke in it's case. I wouldn't want some yay-hoo busting in on my gig for an uninvited jam.

    NUD: Help dating a Kamaka 6?

    Just got an older, white label Kamaka 6 that sounds amazing. I am trying to date it, but there is no serial number or inside date that I could find. Can you help me? It has very unusual tuners that I haven't seen on other old Kamakas. They look like banjo tuners, so I'm not convinced that they...

    Fender Mandocaster Uke conversion

    I have this electric Fender Mandocaster that I got in 2005 for Bakersfield/country band work. It's a 5-string, but the low C never intonated right. It sounds OK, and I made some records with it, but it wasn't magic. In my flu medication induced haze this morning, I got the bright idea to tune...

    Mic & Headphone recommendations for home project studio

    I'm putting together a little project /home studio for my ukulele stuff. What do you recommend for (budget yet good microphones) for a uke? I'm using a Focusrite Scarlet 2i2 into my laptop. Also, any recommendations for inexpensive yet all-purpose headphones? I'm using iPhone earbuds now!:eek:

    Hard case for a uBass

    I'm looking for a hard case for a uBass so I can fly with it. The rectangular Kala case is too big and bulky for what I'm looking to do. Why won't a uBass fit in a regular baritone uke hardcase? Is the width of the tuners a problem?

    Ojai Valley Handmade Ukulele

    I received an Ojai Valley Handmade tenor as a birthday gift last month. Of course, my darling wife did have a little direction.... The back and sides are solid koa, and the top is redwood. The neck appears to be mahogany, with a koa veneer on the peghead and a rosewood fingerboard. It has...

    New uke - go darker or brighter?

    So, it's time for an upgrade. Went down to my local store, Anacapa Ukulele on Saturday, played a bunch, and had my daughter film them with my phone. Of course, these ukes sound different from an audience perspective than what the player hears. The one I really liked was much brighter out front...

    Jake's soundtrack to "Saidoweizu"

    I came across a reference to the Japanese remake of "Sideways," with soundtrack by Jake Shimabukuro. Does anyone know if this is an original soundtrack, or pieces from his prior albums?

    KoAloha concert identification

    This is different than the other KoAlohas I've seen - particularly the carved "KoAloha" on the bridge and the wood dots. It's used, so an older model? Any insights?

    Played my first Uke gig last Saturday

    So I got brave, and brought my Ovation/Applause soprano uke to our gypsy jazz gig last Saturday with the Jill Martini Soiree. I found that the sound was very very bright, and I had to roll the tone control all the way off to get the mellow sound I heard acoustically. I only played it on a couple...

    Baritone tuned in perfect 4ths?

    Is there such a tuning for baritone uke - EADG, but an octave up from the 4 lowest strings on a guitar? If so, what strings are used?

    New here - where do I start?

    Hi, I'm new here. I've had a little Applause soprano uke for a few years, but an upcoming trip to Kapa'a has got me thinking, and I pulled out the uke over the weekend to see if I could make something of it. Plus, I just discovered there's a neat little uke store in my town: Anacapa Ukuleles...
