Ladies and gentlemen. I’m seeking your undisputed knowledge to the whereabouts of the “all knowing”; the ukulele encyclopedia and master of the word. In a nutshell, I need to find out who can give me information about my SS Stewart taropatch ukulele. If this isn’t the best place for information then I may as well just stick it under my bed and forget about it.

Hi,

I did a bit of searching and found this (also found some other posts by you on the mandolincafe and an expired Musician's Friend listing).


Unfortunately, I don't see any details.

Have you tried stringing it up?
I'm curious to hear a sound sample, if you can record one.
Mandolin cafe was my first foray into finding information about the SS Stewart taropatch. At that time I had tried to register on ukulele underground about 40 times with no success….until I went on internet with my iPad. They gave me a mix of years of origin. (1915 - 1940) and makers. So I’ve been trying to find the closest resemblance to my own. Thank you for the information

Also…it has 17 frets but the size is between soprano and concert. Since I am new to this instrument, other than the two I bought for my granddaughters, I thought body sizes would be standard. Guess I need some educating on the subject.
