    Why is the use of straps more contentious in the uke community than with other fretted instruments?

    Its more contentious because you don't really need any. :D I like my ukuleles to be strapless. Might be sexist, but they are prettier strapless too. 😇 Its all personal preference. Don't matter much. When it's your uke, do what you want. Have fun. Don't worry. Be happy

    First Uke help: Tenor or Super Tenor?

    Thanks ailevin for the nice mention. If the OP is still looking I could fix him up with a real nice Pono Tenor with case etc as I did with you. I still have one extra Pono I would part with. @ Johnny057 feel free to PM me if you have interest in a very lightly used Pono Tenor. I have sold...

    Custom made ukulele

    If you don't know exactly what you want, and it does not have to be custom, you mention the the 3 Hawaiin K's first - you might look there. I think you can't go wrong with a K, especially a KoAloha. I really like KoAloha and own more of them than I care to admit. If you are not zeroed in...

    Watched some Hockey on TV last night, and curled today and swilled a little beer afterward. Also signed up for a bonspiel at the end of the month. Damn near feel sort of Canadian tonight. LOL

    A Guy With a Pono ATD Walks Into a Music Store

    Glad you like them all Alan. Yes the ATD was a bargain and a great addition for you. Glad I could help . I own nothing but Pono and KoAloha and very happy with what I have. Would I own a Kamaka at some point , sure I might. Enjoy your journey. Hold on to that ATD it will never let you...

    Canadians - Does Strings By Mail get strings to you?

    Glad you got your strings. You Canadians have it rough sometimes. On the plus side if you curl, watch hockey and swill beer you are in heaven. A little humor there - I do two of the three in the U.S. and admire my good neighbors to the North.

    Pono strings + pickup

    Uke logic, Worth Clear or Brown are ones I have experience with. Like each. Living Water should be good too from what some of the folks in the know here say that have use them. Any of those should be good choices. I also like low G on Ponos ! Enjoy that uke. I know squat about pickups...

    Cordoba, Ohana, Pono, Martin

    Bonanza Ukuleles Oakridge Tenor

    Nice Review Barry. Bonanaza are unusual, and you are impressed each time when you review one. I should purchase a Bonanza. Heck they are built in the states and I think in a neighboring state to me. I should probably give Pete a try. Thanks for another fun review. I enjoy all your reviews !

    Which of these Tenor Uke would you recommend?

    Too bad you are in Argentina - I'd sell you a real sweet Pono Tenor. From your list - I'd pick the Pono hands down. And I never had any issue with any of the Pono's I have or have had with being quiet. Volume on all of them was very good.

    sounds yummy - I like a hard boiled egg similar to you. But maybe just a trifle more cooked yolk than you. But I get it. I have gotten them "just right" to my fancy by accident just doing a conventional pot of water. all timing I guess . Best ones have been by accident. I don't like...
