    Dohle replied to a thread House Ukuleles in Uke Talk
    My rule of thumb is to have one uke and one banjo uke for playing exclusively in my home and another cheaper one of each for travel primarily. This...

    Well, the shop is Finnish and situated in Helsinki, where I live. The shop is called Kitarapaja which I suppose translates to Guitar Shop. Despite...

    Well, colour me green with jealousy. When I was looking for my first proper soprano uke, I found a shop that still had Martin Style 1 Centennials...

    Me too but I would put the emphasis on try. I've seen several Timms ukes which have had the polish worn off where you'd normally just scratch the uke...

    So I finally received my Firefly soprano and I really need to thank everyone who's commented so far because playing it is a blast. The sound is much...

    Seems like an excellent choice. I've heard good things about Pono as well. There was a thread about a Pono solid cedar top tenor in the review...

    Funnily enough, when I first received the KTS-7 I was massively underwhelmed. The matte finish on it made it feel really cheap, almost plasticy,...

    I'm glad to hear this. I'm not a fan of the Konter simply because of the looks as I don't like the etched signatures on it, but I would gladly pay...

    Thanks for the comments, I've no doubt I'll like it. Should be on it's way already. :) My only concern really is the fact that, if I'm not mistaken,...

    I was actually looking (and drooling) at these banjo ukes a couple of months ago. Unfortunately for me, buying pretty much anything from overseas...

    I have to say I totally agree with this. I'm not against etchings or other decoration completely, but if I'm going to touch a uke with that kind of...

    I've been wanting to find a ukulele banjo that sounds similar to those old-timey banjo ukes. You know the like, very tinny, almost a metallic sound....

    I managed to finally tackle my UAS by getting a Kiwaya KTS-7, so for me there aren't that many ukes to aspire for anymore (thankfully). But obviously...

    For me, having geared tuners on a soprano or smaller uke is a real turn off. This is the reason I will probably never buy a Kanile'a, sadly.

    Of the strings I've tried, I think the basic Martin M600 fluorocarbons have the highest tension. Aquilas and other nylgut style strings certainly can...
