    I wonder how much you and your friends pay for your accounts here? I pay nothing for my membership here and that is pretty much the limit of my rights here, and even if I had donated (gifted money)...

    Always like your posts :) . Yes a Uke isn’t small and making music can be done on other things too. I haven’t played a mouth organ (as we call them here) for many decades and I’m not sure what I...

    Sadly the answer is that you basically end up buying blind via mail order and usually donít get much of an idea in shops. If youíre in a Uke Club you might get to talk to some other players and maybe...

    I’d like to add my thanks to those already expressed. Buddhuu’s been a good Moderator, firm and fair is how I’d describe him. Thankfully the folk here seem to give the mod’s little to do but that’s...

    I’m wondering about the historical context of the Concert size Uke and how that impacts on things. Without today’s amplification a performer might be primarily interested in more volume and a sound...

    Mr T is as expert at marketing as he is at building Ukes (so very skilled). Sometimes they sell for the BIN price somethings the auction doesn’t reach the BIN price and sometimes it exceeds it, well...

    I believe that the current Ukadelic is a painted Waterman and that original Ukadelic was basically a Dolphin with a different bridge and paint job. All the Dolphins that I’ve had would serve me as...

    My condolences on your loss, your original post was well before my time here but ‘if a picture tells a thousand words’ then he was a great old guy. The support that you gave him with his workshop is...

    I find myself confused by PVDF because it appears to be Fluorocarbon, line made from it is readily available and described as Fluorocarbon. Are there other forms of Fluorocarbon (material and line)...

    To be honest there are a few brands out there that have either no track record or a ‘mixed reputation’ and shops stock them to turn a quick buck. I really would not bother with anything that isn’t a...

    I suspect that someone got a bargain, well the £200 price I saw in your original post seemed far far too little for the work involved. Your website doesn’t quote prices, if you showed more about the...

    Well done. That’s typical of the generally good natured spirit here on UU. When someone realises that they have unintentionally offended they make, or attempt, to put things right. Anyone can make a...

    That’s interesting to me. Does it say what size (diameter) strings were used, if so I’d love to know what they were, and was it clear or nylon or some other colour? I take it that those old nylon...

    That would seem a fair way forward to me. A KT 2nd has a value. Mark up the label, take the money and look happy. :)

    In fairness to your other buyers and to leave your brand untarnished it really should be option 1 or 2. It seems a pity not to gain something from the build and somehow wrong to destroy an otherwise...

    I wonder what strings it came fitted with from the factory? I had forgotten the link but I suspect Fremonts might have been fitted ... I like them for their mellower sound (plenty of mid range) and...

    A diatribe on a fair price is, IMHO, worth little more than the paper that’s printed on (ie. I think that it's near valueless to me). Of course that doesn’t mean that I’m unsympathetic to the builder...

    It might be some time back but Ken Middleton did a review of this Uke. His take on things was that the stock strings weren’t ideal and that Aquila’s weren’t right for this Martin copy either. He...

    IIRC the site was beginning to cost its owner to much to maintain/host and so was reduced in size / lost to us. He did post here on UU about what he intended to do and I’m kicking myself for not...
