    I'll just add that it's called a Clearwater this side of the pond. :)

    I've got one, I use it occasionally, with a Roland Micro Cube amp, which has a quite a number of built in effects.

    I see it's looking a bit desperate, & I'd hate for it to wind up, so I'll fill in 386 for you, Brian. :)

    I think I'd let the student decide, by that I mean let them try playing each way - they will likely learn quicker & stay with it if they are comfortable.

    You don't necessarily need to file the nut...

    I too, only tend to recommend what I have personal experience of, but would add that some people do like Pono - I personally don't, & can't see/hear what others do, in them, but I'm OK with my Opio &...

    Painful......I always thought rafting was dangerous. ;)

    Speedy recovery.

    P.S. You may be able to pluck the chords, still keeping your damaged finger out of the way.

    Good to have you back in the fold, those long necks are great fun.

    Well, I'm flattered that you think me worthy when drawing on someone to explain anything to do with the uke & song writing, there are many greats on here way better than me, Pabrizzer(Brian), Jon, &...

    I found the Kala KA-S & KA-T had better tone than my Makala concert & my tenor had, so I would agree it would be better to get a Kala, rather than Makala, if you can afford it.

    Yes, that's the Chrometta, lovely tone, comes in 8/10/12/14 hole versions, (but has an awkward mouthpiece for some).
    (I have both the 10 & 14 - these are 'orchestra' tuned, meaning they have a...

    If it's barely noticeable, I'd just keep an eye on it, to make sure it doesn't increase, otherwise, I don't think I'd worry about it. :music:

    The Swan 1040, or maybe, Hohner Chrometta, will get you going, & are quite reasonable, in both sound & quality, (I have both, as well as my better ones).

    I picked up a Clearwater, (red with white pick guard), second hand, & it's been fun to have around, I use a Micro Cube amp, which gives me some nice effects.

    A good cheapish uke, Kala KA-S soprano, or KA-C concert - as said above, I'd be cautious about spending a lot to start with, as sometimes you may find a different scale will suit you better, once you...
