    If you want a really nice uke then try to get a Hawaiian built one. The Asian ukes are ok and cheap but are fairly generic and mainly distinguish from each other cosmetically. As others mentioned...

    Tenor guitar has steel strings. Even with only four strings and in chicago tuning this may be too much tension for this guitar. You'd just have a long and wide neck baritone uke if you keep the...

    I f you want guitar sound then that is generated by the two additional strings and there is no way around to getting a guitar. I also have very small hands for an adult and I have a jumbo guitar with...

    The chords are only needed for accompaniment and can be ignored if you focus on melody and fingerstyle. A tab is usually just an interpretation of the music. As you are able to read and play from...

    You can safely use a low-G string and tune it up to A, or just play the A on the second fret of it. E string would be way too thin and sound like nothing.

    I think UAS has kicked in when we buy a uke just for the sake of it and not because there is a "real" justification such as problems with ukes that are already owned. I have used borderline...

    I think that's a guilele. So what purpose would it serve to have an oversized tenor in dgbe if a baritone would do a much better job with that? Tenor in gcea would probably sound better as that's...

    This looks certainly more reasonable than the HUG strap. I actually have one of these in one of my uke cases but never had the need to use it.

    The picture of the model holding the uke like an 80s wanbabee rock star is reason enough to turn me off this kind of strap. Maybe it looks cool for kids but is just terrible posture and prevents good...

    The new shape looks good to me. To my ears KoAloha has the best sounding concert and long neck sopranos of the K brands whereas I see more Kanile'a and Kamaka tenors in the hands of performers. I...

    I don't see the F#m in question, so the discussion about that would not apply. I assume that these are guitar chords where as it was indicated you use the note past the slash for bass. So on a guitar...

    You are definitely right, that $80 repair/setup is not reasonable for a cheap uke. However, I would encourage you to try analyze and fix the "problem" yourself. This may not be difficult and the...

    You can tell from the tkickness. The thick C is tuned like the C on another tenor, and the really thin C an octave higher. For the A, the thin one is tuned like the regular A on any uke, and the...
