    Every day as well. I keep the uke handy so that I can pick it up throughout the day, even if it's just for a few minutes at a time. I've never kept track of how long I'm playing each day because that...

    That's very interesting Cluze, I didn't think to test the same notes on other strings. Those four notes do indeed sound less resonant on other strings. I should say that they probably aren't totally...

    Thanks for the info everyone, much appreciated. I am glad to know that the A string has generally the least amount of sustain due to the tension. I thought that would be the case. So it's probably...

    Thanks for the suggestion Tin Ear. I did change the strings from Aquila Supernylgut strings to fluorocarbons and it helped a bit, but the issue (if you can call it that) persists.

    I've played quite a few sopranos in the past couple of months but didn't focus on sustain until now. Two questions for soprano owners:
