    Replace geared tuners

    Has anyone ever replaced their geared tuners with friction tuners or pegheads? I have a concert that I'm thinking should loose it's geared tuners. I guess it's mostly for looks, but I have pegheads on my six string and I love them.

I'm not sure what I'm going to get, I just keep trying to grow my uke fund and keep my eyes open. Are you the same way, or do you already know which...

    Cigarbox ukulele

    I played a cool cigarbox ukulele at the Tampa Bay Ukulele Getaway last weekend. I really think it would make a nice clawhammer uke. I'm going to try to build a couple of concert scale with my dad. Anyone out there built a good cheap cigarbox uke? Have any tips or suggestions?

    "The One"

    I was reading a post by UUer France entitled "Give it time?" and a lot of interesting things popped up. He was saying that he had a Mya Moe that he wasn't really into. The conversation turned into that maybe it just wasn't the right ukulele for him. Many people have claimed that UAS is just...

    Baritone haters

    Since I have been on UU, I have read many posts where someone says that a baritone is just too much like guitar. I got a baritone and like it for fingerpicking but not strumming, I felt is was too low and too much like a guitar haha. This being said, I really did like it though, but decided to...

    Last week I was browsing through ebay and I ran into a ukulele that looked interesting. I had heard several comments buy UUers that owned one about how much they liked it. The starting bid was $100, so I thought why not give it a try. I bid and forgot about it, thinking that someone would...

    Dolphin Buzz

    I got a Makala Dolphin to take to the beach on vacation. I hated the strings that came in it, but couldn't find any aquilas locally so I put on a set of Martins. The uke sounds great, but I have some buzzing when I fret on the first fret, I think it's buzzing on the second. No buzz on open...

    Solid/Laminate/Vener

    I know this has been discussed at great length, but I'm still confused. I own all solid wood ukuleles and agree that they sound better than most laminates. What I want to know is what if you just have a solid top. Does the sides and back have that much influence on sound? How would solid sides...

    Too many choices!!!

    I had just decided to save up for the Mainland longneck concert pineapple. My first uke is a soprano and I can't make up my mind what to get, a concert or a tenor and a figure that I like pineapples so get both, a pineapple concert with a tenor neck. Case closed... Not yet, Uke Republic rolls...
