    Partially defeats the purpose of a slimline uke in my eyes, but each to their own.
    Good job!

    Usually it's better just to sand down a new saddle.

    I have tried with a relatively inexpensive octave pedal (Danelectro).

    It didn't work very well.
    Definitely worth getting an actual bass or bass ukulele.

    You're welcome :)

    In my case, the dgbe tuning didn't stay on the concert uke for long.
    I changed it back to gcea because the 'feel' of the strings was a bit too fat.

    Well that's kind of the point of a baritone uke isn't it?

    And what is surprising? It is basically a 4 string guitar :)

    I don't think it's just feedback.
    Solid body gives more sustain and output, as there is greater vibration when a solid piece of wood vibrates compared to a thin top.

    This is why I am a little bit...

    All I can say is that my experience has been different.
    I've had both high-end and low-end ukes come sounding great and bad alike even with the same kind of pickup (Mi-Si, Shadow, Fishman, etc).

    Arguably, yes.
    The piezo pickup is picking up vibrations from saddle and bridge.
    The rest of the instrument, such as the top and body woods makes a very minute contribution to the output signal....

    Thanks for elaborating.
    I guess it depends on the sensitivity of the listener and also the piezo strip's ability to detect those nuances.
    Once preamps, amps and sound modelling is added to the...

    Depends on the type of pickup.
    My theory is that for any undersaddle piezo pickup, there won't be any significant differences as long as the ukulele is setup well.

    On other kinds, like a high...

    It all depends on the setup as well.
    A well setup steel string guitar is 'easier' to play than a 4-string ukulele with a mediocre setup (also depends on what tension strings used, etc etc).
