    I think that you meant to write Pono Super Soprano (rather than Super Tenor). This one from your earlier shortlist and from your favoured dealer:...

    Just a few thoughts.

    Of course I don’t have the very best of Ukes but in my experience of Sopranos playing high up the neck towards the saddle really isn’t their strength and hence stopping at 12...

    Three lovely instruments to be sure. I’m not sure about prices and service but that’s a different issue and personal to you. Let’s stick to this store as otherwise, for the budget, its got to be an...

    That Sopranos cannot be played by people with big fingers is mis-information with a grain of truth in it. What is important is the spacing between the strings so opt for a wider neck and check that...

    Thanks for the review which I enjoyed listening to.

    A while back I bought a laminate Concert Uke with a well known name on the headstock, it was a great disappointment and I thought it was...

    My suspicion is that your start point is that if a string appears to be perfectly made, and/or has passed the manufacturer’s quality assurance checks, then it is perfect. However faults in material...

    I would add to that in that of all the strings I’ve had intonation problems with the bulk of them have been Nylon. To be fair the Nylon strings that I’ve happened on in the past haven’t necessarily...

    As ever Bill makes some excellent points, read and note them ‘cause he usually takes his posts down after a few days. Now just to give a little balance to the not invalid ‘leave it at home’ argument....

    I’m glad that you found our collective responses helpful. In terms of practical purposes I personally don’t believe that an OU has anything particularly useful to offer over a typical laminate, but...

    My best guess is that you’re using the standard New Nylgut type strings, they’re OK but I moved away from them in favour of Martin M600 fluorocarbon strings - my favourite for several years and...

    One of the guys on Cosmos is the same, he has that tuning on a Soprano ... it’s different but it works for him.

    UU does do funny stuff with posts. Always copy your text before pressing the submit...

    Thank you for giving the feedback, that kind of thing supports the UU community.



    I’m not quite sure when the M600’s changed to fluorocarbon but it was maybe a decade ago and their latest...

    I understand the curiosity - heck, if only for my own general education, I’m interested in knowing more too - but with no disrespect to the questioners Bill and Chris are correct in that it’s not...

    IIRC one of this forum’s U.K. members has a nice Bruko that he was considering letting go of. He (IIRC Chris667) has more instruments than he needs and the ones he plays most were either made for him...

    One can but have a lot of respect for such an action. It kind of goes to support the good things that have already been said about The Uke Room.

    Let’s hope for a happy outcome where the buyer and...

    I hope that something good comes out of this for you. The Uke Room owner is a long time member here, from his you tube content it’s clear that he’s an expert player too. If his email response is slow...

    Very occasionally I use the ‘way back machine’, what a fantastic device it is. I’m curious as to whether the OP might be able to access his missing data (link) via that route ... it’s just a thought...

    To me that’s a logical way forward. I suppose it’s dependent on personal circumstances, but I wouldn’t want to trash the value of an expensive instrument. If someone needs a sound port for use whilst...

    The Martins are a sound choice. Doubtless there’ll be better strings for you in the future but you can - indeed many people do - go round and round in circles hunting for the perfect strings. Two...
