    Bump again. This will be headed to eBay at some point if it doesn't sell here so throw in an offer and save me the hassle!

    Wrong question - the question is "does it hinder"? Happily, no! Hendrix managed just fine restringing a righty, as did Kobain at times, no reason others shouldn't follow suit :)

    World of Ukes Clarity strings

    Last year I picked up a tenor set of the strings Matt at World of Ukes developed with Worth. They're clear fluorocarbon and he says they're optimised for finger picking (a claim I was dubious about -...

    Echoing above - white, thick and low tension is almost certainly Aquila Nylgut or Super Nylgut.

  10. FS: Bonanza Flatlander Concert Uke - UK / EU

    I'm embarking on a ruthless clear out - if it's not played weekly then it's not sticking around.

    Here we have a HPL Bonanza Flatlander concert scale uke (Bonanza #93, built September 2016). If...

    The best £50 I ever spent?

    Meet Alic. About 4 or 5 years ago I shelled out £50 on impulse to try this little thing out. Plastic back, plywood top, awful holographic thing on it, plastic fretboard. Just reading that...

    I've done it twice through UU and had a lot of fun doing it both times. One was a UK - USA trade, the other a UK - Canada trade. I didn't know the people before, just bumped into them here on UU. As...

    I had one of these and the tuner posts were borderline too short! So I'm guessing adjustment must be possible. Incredible instrument, exceedingly comfortable to play. I prefer more than 12 frets so...

    You've already ordered so it's neither here nor there but Soloist or a Thomastik Infeld CF30. Very similar strings - I tend to use whichever I can get my hands on most easily when I want one.

    Very slim neck profile. It's not that I hate it, more that it hates me. After hand surgery a few years back I can't play thin necks without pain. Had to move on a Takumi soprano because I couldn't...

    Thought I'd chip in again - I also owned a Pono ULN4 larger than usual baritone and I regret selling that so much I'm considering buying one again. It was phenomenal. There's also a Pono MS in The...

    That's them! They do loads of different styles as well. Look really weird when there's no instruments hanging in them!

    Hi Jon, this was my exact experience with my Pono tenor as well. I moved it on and figured I just didn't get why people loved them so much. Matt at the uke room has since told me that he finds Ponos...

    It's the US version of VAT Timbuck. Doesn't work in quite the same way but that is the closest analogy to our tax system. Similar to me buying a uke in the US - it would have VAT slapped on it once...

    He does - does the same design from soprano up to baritone. No option on the website for lefties that I can see but otherwise he's got the bases covered.
