    Oooh, don't do that! :eek:
    Yes, you need the right strings. I never had one of the SC EFS sets, but yes, it is very different from standard guitalele strings. You want to start with a "bari tune...

    Pretty much all a and g strings will be similar in gauge as to make little difference in terms of compensation or intonation. And plenty of ukes are made with straight, non-compensated saddles and...

    I think John Boy is on the right track. Strings are not that far off from standard DGBE strings, just rearranged and you need an extra one. Note that you're probably going to end up with 3 wound...

    I refuse to participate in this thread on the grounds that it implies I have a problem. I don't have a problem. I can quit any time I want.

    Sorry, I missed keenonuke's reply somehow.

    NAF is Native American Flute.

    This practice track was written to go with my "NAF Tips" series on the Flukutronic channel. Here's the main "lesson" if...

    I don't have a K'anilea but I'm not much of a fan of Aquila personally. Strings are cheap. If you're curious about other options, just do it! If you end up not liking them, it'll cost you $5 or so to...

    Some families of instruments don't always fall neatly on octave boundaries - think saxophones, for example. Other families (particularly diatonic or mostly diatonic) make sense to have every key -...

    Nice. I recently put my tenor in A reentrant tuning. You wouldn't happen to have a chord chart of that would you?

    On the baritone scale, I really like the T-I CF127 set in Terz (G to G). They should be good for A to A tuning on tenor scale but I haven't tried them there. I also had a "reentrant Terz" tuning on...

    Well, honestly I'm not much of a bass player and I don't usually play very far up the neck. Fretted U-bass has its own intonation challenges so I figure I'm not much worse off. :p

    I agree with the stock strings the strumming sounded a little muddy. I just put on a set of D'Addario EJ45LP tonight so we'll see how those sound in a couple days.

    Haha! Yeah, I've bought 3 basses myself and still have 2, both Kala solid bodies, one fretted and one fretless. I probably should sell the fretted one.

    Yeah, I was surprised by that too, and TBH, I'm not sure how I feel about it. :p
    Yes, it's a cool custom touch, but what happens if I need to rehome it at some point. :confused:
