    It's usually a disappointment to visit music stores looking for Ukuleles. Generally speaking, all they have are big factory brand, laminated, cheapos which they think of as "beginner" instruments. ...

    I'm not sure about the Ukulele brand, but there seems to be a rather accomplished player named Warendorf von Elmar Rubbenstroth. https://youtu.be/SB7Wsh7WN0M

    I have a Baritone Uke with a set C, 8vb strings on it. It's Island tuning, but an octave lower than normal. That gets it so low that chords sound pretty mushy. But plucking single strings sounds...

    The key word in your post is "subjective." To my ear, the only difference in sound between a parlour guitar and a baritone ukulele is the broader spectrum of sound from the guitar's lower strings. ...

    Wow, another biker in the group! OK, ex-biker, but once a biker, always a biker, right? As a beginner you need two things: (1) an instrument with decent tone quality, and; (2) a good setup on the...

    My cousin shocked me with the news that he bought an Ukulele and was practicing on it. Then he visited me, and I saw that he was struggling with a $49 instrument. As is typical of that sort of...

    I keep a Low G on many of my Ukuleles. And, the normal way to string and tune a Baritone is with a Low D. In fact, I can't recall ever seeing or hearing a Bari with reentrant tuning. I always...
