    I've got a set of Uke Logic Soft Tension strings on my Cocobolo Concert. I like them a lot! The original Worth Browns were good but these might be a step up in sound and playability.

    This is a great collaboration: Two of Hawaii's finest musicians and one of the world's best ukulele (and guitar) makers. I guess you can see that I'm an aNueNue fanboy (if you can use that term for a...

    I do a fair amount of eBay selling (and buying). I generally limit my international sales to small, non-breakable (or at least easy to protect) items. I'd be very reluctant to ship something as bulky...

    My go-to Low G setup for a tenor is Worth Brown Fluorocarbons with a Fremont Soloist "squeakless, polished" wound Low G string. Living Water non-wound Low G sets are also good but I missed the...

    Noodling is great, as long as you're doing it by yourself and not twiddling about as an instructor is teaching or a performer is playing a quiet solo. It's very distracting to the rest of the room....

    It does look likely to be just a finish crack, but it's hard to be sure just from the photos. I agree with the dealer that it probably was caused by dropping or something hitting it. (Don't ask me...

    Has he built ukes from bamboo before? If he would offer some instruments with minimal decoration/inlays and just highlight the wood, I might be tempted, but most of what I see is overly ornate for my...

    I agree with Michael about the humidity issues, but I would think that a five-week-old instrument, in the soggy UK, wouldn't have a major issue like this. Maybe if it was stored in front of a hot air...

    Probably! :D

    Seriously, I've never noticed any smell, strange or otherwise, from my Fremont Soloist strings.

    I'd be contacting the dealer for a return and replacement. That's not something easily fixed by a non-professional. Even if it's just a finish crack and not extending into the wood, there's a chip of...

    In all honesty, even if I had the disposable income, I'm not sure that I'd want one. I'd be afraid to play the darn thing (I'm a klutz and most of my ukes have dings and scratches.) Although I'm sure...

    Honestly, if I didn't already have a custom ukulele on order and in-process, I'd be seriously tempted to drop some stimulus cash on one of those.

    Are you seriously saying that American soldiers participated in war games in Wuhan, China? Do you have a source for that? I'm pretty skeptical. :confused:

    I kind of like it IF it's not overdone/overpowering. As much as I like Mainland ukes, the heavy rope binding turns me off. On the other hand, my Pono ATD-CR has a nice subtle binding that I think is...
