    I had a K-1 super tenor once and I agree it's a great sounding uke. To me the sound is at the same level of some custom tenors I have. The only reason I sold it was because I kind of moved away...

    Good looking uke! When Willie Wixom first surfaced on UU, I toyed with the idea of inquiring about a concert that pretty much have the same specs as yours except for a cedar top. But I ultimately...

    The only myrtle uke I've played is my one year old Mya-Moe concert, so it's not like I have much experience with Myrtle ukes, but based on this one I own, I don't think I'd get another myrtle uke in...

    I have a 1.5" nut on my Mya-Moe as that's my preferred nut width. All of my custom ukes are ordered with 1.5" nut.

    I've never seen a Kanile'a without a stacked heel, and both Kanile'as I've owned have stacked heels. I personally prefer one-piece necks for looks, but I think read somewhere on UU (I think in the...

    I suggest:

    1. Seek out some intermediate to advanced ukulele technique videos (I recommend Roy Sakuma's videos) and learn new techniques.
    2. Listen to a bunch of ukulele instrumental players such...

    The beauty of actually being in Hawaii is that you get to play the ukes you may potentially buy. Assuming that you will have enough time to visit a few uke shops, go to places like HMS or Ukulele...

    You'll probably be happy with any of them. Since you can't try them in person, I think the sound consistency between ukes for these brands, based on my experience only, goes something like this:

    Har! But I've already got a King LS tenor. I do wish I had Gilbert tuners on that one though. (I wish I have every custom uke under the sun...I don't think I even have as many as you!)

    I don't play sopranos too often and own two right now. Both are pretty good, but I probably like the Kiwaya KTS-7 a little more overall. The DaSilva Santos reproduction might be the coolest looking...

    I have a lot more fun playing the ukulele than singing (and singing can be pretty fun for me), so it's fingerpicking for me.

    I recently played one of each of the KoAloha regular long-neck soprano and pineapple long-neck soprano. The regular one was very good but the pineapple was really awesome. I seriously considered...

    Right now I've got Southcoast strings on my Glyph mezzo-soprano and William King concert and they sound great, probably my favorite sounding strings so far on those two. I'd try them on more ukes if...

    I'm guessing they all had to raise prices due to increasing costs. I'm just glad that I'm done with UAS for the most part. :p

    The Islander ukes have 1.5" neck width, which is wider than the usual 1-3/8" found on your LU-21P. I prefer 1.5" nut width, as I play mostly fingerstyle stuff. But as I gain more experience playing...

    That's a great looking set of Macassar ebony! I'm a big fan of this look and your uke should look great.



    I think that's called "reverse kerfing". I know Kanile'a does it that way. I don't...

    I pretty much only play instrumentals, and I think it would be almost impossible to play them if I had to read from a tab sheet, so by the time I have an arrangement down, it's pretty much committed...

    I thought Mike DaSilva moved to Hawaii. Did he abort the move or is he splitting time between California and Hawaii?

    I think it really depends on what you are looking for in the sound. I've got a few ukes that sound great to me but very different from one to another. I do think a good all-koa body uke probably...

    I did a direct comparison with a KoAloha concert (which sounded very good to me) at the Waikiki shop. While I wouldn't say the Martin necessarily sounded better, it was definitely in the same level,...

    Hey Bao, the Martin C1K has a street price of about $470. I'd actually advise against buying one sight unseen (unless there's a great return policy), as I'm not sure how consistent these are. This...

    Thanks!

    The uke is what Dave Means, the builder, calls a mezzo-soprano. It's sized between a soprano and a concert. The neck is joined at the 14th fret, so he made the scale longer to get the...
