    Same. The redwood/myrtle--actually both the redwood tenors, and the spruce/ziricote sound best to me.

    I think they're all still available, minus the cedar/cocobolo one. I'm guessing the missing...

    I could be mistaken, but I feel like the Kiwaya laminates are not especially durable. I'm not sure where I got this impression from.




    Depending on the kind of travel, carrying a hard shell...

    Right up until you said concert, I was thinking of the Martin 0X HPL sopranos, which are small, durable, play well and sound great. A bit heavy, but you said weight doesn't matter. Would probably...

    I don't know about looks, but cotton is safe. I've heard horror stories about cases and guitar stands/holders leaving marks on different instrument finishes, and not just from cheap brands. I think...

    Yeah, they're not there, huh? They are available from some retailers though.

    Maybe not a mistake then? When I was talking to HMS last year (they were the ones who thought KoAloha would have mango ukes soon), they had just gotten the mango Rebels in, and I was trying to decide...

    Both KoAloha and a dealer separately told me last year that they expected to have mango ukuleles soon. However, I'm sure the coronavirus has slowed things down.

    Actually, what KoAloha told me was...

    I have a Waterman that I got for similar reasons. I went through three of them before I found one that sounded halfway decent. If you can find a decent sounding one, they're okay, but barely worth...

    The new KoAlanas?

    Has anybody tried any of the new KoAlana ukuleles? I've been helping someone look for a decent all laminate, and these came up. Personally, I love KoAlohas, and the Opios are great, but I'm not sure...

    I have a few, though they're not crazy holy grail type instruments. They're mostly ones that slipped through my fingers because of circumstances. I don't know how much I would have actually liked...

    Sure.



    Right, emphasis on "becoming."



    It's possible that my comment could be construed as anti-China. It's not meant to be. I don't think Chinese people are stupid or naive. Far from it,...

    I have a mango Rebel and mango Romero. Overall, I prefer the Rebel to the Romero, but I still like the Romero because of its unique features, with its very wide fretboard and guitar-like sustain....

    I second the advice about buying from a shop that sets up the ukes for you and having them put in a low G on whatever concert you like.

    I'll have to disagree. China's a big country, and any generalization isn't going to be perfect, but they've earned their reputation for creating fakes and copies. Their wealthier class is relatively...

    Really? That seems a little shady unless it's the same species. Actually, it makes me think of all those acacia ukes that are described as koa, even though the wood's not from Hawaii.

    I was...

    This makes me wonder why we don't hear more about Chinese/Asian tonewoods. You'd think with such a large country and continent, there'd be lots of different types of wood to choose from. I can only...

    Seems like everyone's converting to straps.




    If you can find strap buttons that match, I think that might look better. I bet you have other colors picked out for your other ukes anyway, might...

    Yeah, I agree. Kala might not have great resale, but they're often pretty good value. That said, I think Pono and Opios are better options.

    I'm also mostly a no strap buttons on my ukes person. But I think they should match something on your uke. Usually it's best if you match the hardware, like some have recommended. But your hardware's...

    I've seen darker than usual redwood and even red cedar, though they're not especially dark. Might look weird with the walnut body. Some pistachio is pretty dark, too, but it's really wild. I've heard...

    Hi Penny,
    These are probably not ideal chords for beginners to be practicing. I was able to manage them on a tenor, so they are reachable, but it would be difficult for small or unpracticed hands.
