    I have an old case like the gray one in your pictures. It's spotted with age, and the leather is disintegrating, but the edge binding is in better shape. Structurally it's OK. PM me if you're...

    This is an old thread, but I thought you might be interested in knowing that another Kalia was described as having a cedar top and palo escrito body and sides. That may explain the unusual color of...

    What ukulele did you get your daughter? Or did you let her choose her own?

    Yes, Bill1, 1x02 is a great alternative.

    To make it more clear for us beginners, one way to do it is to play a regular E7 chord shape (1202), but lift the middle finger on the C-string just...

    My first ukulele was a Donner DUC-1, and I found it great for learning. It was attractive, with mahogany that shimmered under a satin gloss finish. It came with everything I needed, including two...

    I agree that koa and other acacias often sound very similar, but there's something about the sound of koa that has a special resonance for me that acacia has just never quite matched. It gets close,...

    The Mr Mai M-M80 is specified as solid koa while the Brightsun BS20 is specified as Asian acacia wood veneer, according to the Google translator. That could account for some of the price difference....

    Thanks, Tracie! I ordered one. Needed something sturdier for the plane. I like that it's lockable -- less likely to come open unexpectedly. Also, if there's any problem with the fit, it can be...

    Yes, it's definitely not a Bruce Wei. I'm familiar with those, and the construction is very different. I'll look into Taisamlu and Alulu. Thanks!
