    Stopping by to say "Hi" to some old friends.

    Same here. I don’t think we were friends, but we could be. Welcome back

    I like them, and I like the regular Martin strings, as well.

    Stolen (?) Ukes- or maybe just lost in shipping

    How frustrating!!!!!! But this does show the wonderful kindness and flexibility I’ve always (at least I can’t think of any exceptions right now) in transactions with our members.

    It's almost time to: PLAY BALL! Predict your team's record for this year

    I read your post like: Blah blah NL team, blah blah another NL team, blah blah not again! Outta here. 😅 But I do have that springtime hope.

    Modern Martin S1 Review

    Wonderful! You just freed up a lot of room in your mind to use improving your playing. It’s difficult to chase the imaginary perfect ukulele and practice the one you have at the same time. You end up shopping most of the time. And the more you play that Martin, the better it will sound—and...

    "Sweet Georgia Brown" on martin-esque Brüko rosewood

    First Uke help: Tenor or Super Tenor?

    Since it seems you may have access to a variety of concert-size ukulele in your wife’s group, perhaps you could start there. By testing some of them, you may be able to hone in on how important the string spread and nut width are to you. They may be able to give you information about the brand...

    Distressed finishes: getting out of hand?

    Oh please do! I’m serious, I’d love to see ukuleles worse than that. I could use the laugh. With regard to this particular blob of ugly, my thought when I saw it was, “Wow, I thought we were over zebrawood. But if they were going to resurrect that fad, they chose an appropriate finish.”...

    For Sale Takumi TS-3M

    That’s a beauty. Now I know what Kiwaya did with the KTS-6 when they discontinued it! This is the same style, but with some upgrades—the tuners, the gloss finish, probably others, but the heritage is clear. I bet it sounds great. Good luck with the sale.

    NUD : Martin C1K

    I spoke too soon, I forgot that I have played one that I think is no longer in production, a mahogany tenor with front and back bindings and maybe some purfling in front. It was nice. I’m sure you’ll like yours. Looking forward to your review.

    NUD : Martin C1K

    I’ve never even seen a contemporary Martin-made ukulele, but I have played plenty of the Mexican ones, and I like them. I would never brag about their fit and finish! But they sound good, and they play easy and they’re priced right. I think maybe their biggest advantage is that there are plenty...
