    Guitarist. Got tired of their bulk on road trips. Stumbled on a Luna concert uke at a pawn shop. $60 w/hard case. In ten minutes, I was hooked. The upward $piral continues. I currently rock a pair of...

    UPDATE: Okay, so now I've had it a month. Nothing negative to report. It seems to be getting slowly louder- not a lot, but it's noticeable and continues. Very good results so far.

    SO, you would agree that a 7/8" drift would be okay if the case was dropped, say. from above your belt to a hard floor? I'm not asking for a ballistics cert, just a reasonable opinion. So far I've...

    Thank you all! You have pretty much confirmed what I believed: The case for "military grade" situations, the bag for normal use. I live in the PNW and only in the most extreme points of the year is...

    I have it. I've remarked on it earlier in this thread. Been about three weeks. LOVE IT. Well made-elegant bling- very nice tone and volume above average sustain. Great for the price. Worth more....
  9. Is a gig bag a better option than a loose hard shell case?

    I've got a Tenor Ukulele that fits loosely in the all the hi-end cases I've got. No matter how I fit it, the uke will have about 7/8" of drift (side drift is almost zero, upper bout fit is close, but...

    Although not perfect (because of space for upper bout) a Crossrock ABS Concert hard-shell is a good "drop in" snug but not too snug and zero movement. Ohana and Kala ABS concerts also work fine.

    The more I play this ukulele, the better I like it. I DO find it a little hard to barre at the FIRST fret (Db7). Everywhere else it's either not an issue or slightly easier. I lowered the saddle and...

    I've had the Uma Pulse for about a week now, and it's a great uke for the price. I'm not ready to say that the intonation advantage is significant. Nor am I ready to say that the playing ease makes...

    UPDATE: Since the Pulse comes with a squeaky round wound low-G, and I was swapping that out anyway, I elected to try it with a Hi-G (which they generously provided in the case) It sounds and plays...

    Bought one. Tenor. The videos sound like it wouldn't hold anyone back as far as tonality, volume or sustain. We'll see. I've got Farallons, which meet most of my needs, so this is just for fun,...

    Even worse

    Even worse, it can get to the point where you're even afraid to NOT play it, while you worry that it might come apart just sitting in it's case. To me, as beautiful as they are the high-end woodies...

    This is great if you get the right uke for it. Some ukes are almost stressed-sounding at standard pitch.

    They look cool, but if you're going for a GO ANYWHERE uke, a wood fingerboard and bridge might be questionable. Personally, I went with a Carbon Outdoor Uke. No wood at all. Heck, I can paddle a...

    Very true. And I might do just that, but I was hoping for something along the tortoise amber or Ivoroid lines, without having to do a lot of modification. As you said though, it is an option which I...

    You're quite right. It isn't much. It DOES seem like the curvature of the saddle is more than is called for on mine. But the intonation is spot-on and overall I have no complaints. I just wondered if...

    I'm not sure that's what it's called. I'm referring to the hi-speed up-down strum used to simulate a sustain. I think I first heard it called that by Jake Shimabukuro. It just seems to be easier to...
