    The pic says hashi ukurere, or chopstick uke. I guess someone needed to justify their throwaway chopsticks and... made a uke out of them?

    Cool videos, as always. But hey, little beer, no "coughing between the cheeks"... are you mellowing out, is age starting to become a factor, is there a green bottle shortage? Don't lose your edge...

    Yes. And I find it amazing on the other hand, that very few regular members / prolific posters have not chimed in yet. Last minute strategy to prevent "the ultimate story" from being copied? Does...

    Hey, don't get thrown off so easily! You knew enough to say explicitly that you are thinking about a soprano. I think sopranos are the coolest, and if you get a fairly decent one there is enough...

    I have them on a Fluke, and they are great. AND black! Similar to Worth but a little softer I get the impression.

    You really need to go out and buy any uke and start playing and having fun, instead of putting up useless quizzes where you could be getting good advice. You do not want us to be biased? Really,...

    Sorry, I missed the guitar part there, finger strength is obviously not the issue then. Aquilas have a strong attack (which may be the "hard" sound you are talking about), which gives the impression...

    Aquilas seem to be a bit thicker than other brands, if you can't play them take them off and put the old ones back on. On the other hand, if you practice a bit chances are you'll get used to them....

    Wow, that must be a bit special indeed. How did you get to play the uke, what do you play, and what instruments are popular to play in Hungary if it's not the ukulele?

    If you are in doubt, think about it a bit more. It's quite a bit of money, and for 700 bucks you can go a long way with other brands as well. G-strings are very nice, but the ones I tried were a bit...
