    How do you abuse your ukulele?

    I try not to, with one exception they live in their cases when not being played. My Kanilea sits on its stand, beside my desk, waiting to be grabbed and played. I constantly think of parting with it as it is a poor fit for me. However its the one I grab for stress relief and problem solving. If...

    Hardcase for Kiwaya KTS-4 and or Imua Soprano

    Korg Clip on Uke Tuner

    Korg AW-2U Bought one of these recently to go in the case of uke #2. It's grand and in some ways I like it better than my Snark SN2, however for anyone considering one I've noticed the following: every now and again it will suddenly decide to read (almost) flat. e.g for A it reads G# and a wee...
