    Martin M600 or. Worth clears are my typical suggestion. However, for loud, bright and clear, I’d suggest Aquila reds.

    I find them after research, trying, watching and occasionally gambling. I’m pretty intentional in terms of size and wood. The one exception to this was my Iriguchi. I went to David’s shop in...

    Not a fan of the black strings. I love the sound of Aquila reds on Kamakas. I find they add brightness to the deep bass tones.

    Unfortunately, this a carry on and 100% my mistake...a costly mistake in that it was 50+ year old uke that made an amazing sound.

    Thanks. Normally I’m all over things like this. Travel with two young ones for the first time proved to be quite distracting as was the severe turbulence!

    I think your price is fair. I’ve seen some go higher and lower depending on condition. If there is white binding around the soundboard, then it is a deluxe model and should be around $800+. When...

    My used and abused gold label Kamaka. Such a sweet sound from a dinged and damaged uke! I take it traveling but I definitely try avoid any further damage (unlike prior owners).
