    Anyone with really old strings?

    So I'm moving in about a week and as I'm going through all my stuff I unearthed a new set of Aquila Tenor strings. A full standard set plus a low G. I don't use Aquilas anymore so I figured I'll give them away to a needy soul. So if you want them, reply to this thread with the age of your uke...

    The Mr. Moonlight Uke Sticker Design Contest!!!!

    Here's a sticker I did a long while back as another example. It was for my DJ crew in San Francisco and it came out really nice. I converted it from a sketch through rubber stamp in Photoshop. It's good to have high contrast, such as lots of pure blacks and whites.

    Uke Sticker

    As I said in another thread, I've been thinking about getting one of my uke sticker designs printed for my case. The thing is, I wasn't sure which version of it I want. One that reflects my Japanese heritage or one that everyone can read. So I figured I'd seek the help of all of you. Thanks in...

    Uke = Happiness

    So Honolulu has been deemed the happiest place in America. I think this is pretty strong evidence for uke's = happiness. Miami where I live is practically at the bottom and despite having a bar called "The Ukulele Bar" it's a ukulele wasteland. http://www.menshealth.com/best-life/frown-towns

    What's your method for choosing a uke?

    This is mainly a question to those who live in uke challenged areas and end up buying sight unseen. I generally go through every online review and try to do as much research as I can on every uke that fits my specs and budget. After countless YouTube videos I finally get my heart set on one...

    Uke Capo

    I've been using my old Kaiser trigger style guitar capo for my Ukes but it's cumbersome being a bit big for the smaller fingerboard. Does anyone have a favorite capo they use on their uke's that fits properly?

    Ko'olau vs. Kanile'a tenors

    So I'm trying to decide between going with either a Ko'olau or Kanilea'a Tenor. I play a good mix of strumming and fingerpicking styles. Since I live in South Florida where there really are no Ukulele stores, I'm stuck with just listening to sound clips on YouTube to make my decision. Currently...

    UU Marketplace Prices

    Just wondering if we could have prices posted in the titles to make it easier to search through the Uke's without going through every post. That way I can avoid drooling over all the Uke's that are way out of my pricerange in my searches adding to UAS :p

    Greetings from Miami Beach

    I just started playing ukulele about a month ago and I absolutely love it! I was searching for an instrument that was small enough for my new son to handle and found a new instrument for myself as well. I can't seem to put it down. I already have a second Uke for myself on it's way!
