    My Kanile'a super tenor started out at 2.75mm at the 12th fret (perfect for me) and, after 6 months or so, went up to nearly 3.25mm. An action touchup down the road is pretty common and I've had to...

    Betty Lou of '52, my original, and the last of 22 videos we shot for the 'ukulele classes at Leeward CC. The "headless" format was used to enhance fretboard visibility, and I used both finger style...

    It's somewhat common, especially for those with larger hands, to tune a baritone to GCEA. However, you need to use much thinner—lower tension—strings to be playable, and even then the tension may be...

    If it includes ownership of a stand alone building, that's a steal. If it's just their old stock, lease and reputation, you might as well start from scratch.

    I saw Pepe's custom Tiny Tenor with a side port on his FB page (koa). He indicated it was a special order shipping to HMS. So Pepe thinks it okay on that design. It was expensive...

    You may need to get the frets leveled. A truss rod is used to adjust neck relief in the middle of the neck, i.e., around the 7th fret, and doesn't make much difference on the first few frets.

    Much of Nicolas de Angelis recordings appear to be easy listening pop music played on nylon string guitar, rather than classical guitar music. You might find lead sheet and/or piano arrangements and...

    I've used D'addario capos for years and there are no marks on any of my instruments, but I always remove after playing. I suspect Ms Bean is right about the UV exposure causing gradual darkening of...

    One thing about the Romero Replica tenor design is it has "reverse fan bracing" on the back, thereby causing the back to act as a secondary soundboard. If you hold the back against your belly, you...

    Yes, some heavy rain here on Oahu the past couple days. Sad to see that area of Haleiwa flooding. A grand pain for all involved. Looks like the Ukulele Site retail store avoided the worse of it.

    I've played both in various tone woods and have to say the biggest difference in sound revolved around the wood combinations rather than the body style. I preferred the all mahogany grand tenor over...

    Intonation problems are most pronounced in the upper positions. If you don't use the low G above the 7th fret you probably won't notice if intonation is a wee bit off.

    I've seen older Kanile’a with unstained rosewood fingerboards, resulting in a lighter brown hue. The new Oha series have brown fingerboards as well.

    Most early guitars—Renaissance and Baroque—were strung reentrant. And strumming was rasgueado using multiple fingers in both down and up strokes.
