    As ever Bill hits the nail on the head. Thanks and I’ll be following some of that advice in due course.

    I note Bill’s references to Mahalo and then think of an old one that I had. It didn’t sound...

    How do Allegiant measure bags before the flight? Do they just (try to) put it into a basket with those dimensions?

    Are you able to purchase a bag with those dimensions? If so then there’s a...

    Congratulations on the deal. Makala’s work fine as a beater and better still with a bone saddle and Martin M600’s on them.

    I still have a Makala Uke but it’s lent out. IIRC one of the plain...

    Let me give a slightly different angle on this discussion.

    I rarely if ever buy expensive items, sometimes I could spend quite a bit more than I do but controlling money outflow leaves funds still...

    To add to comments so far I believe that Martin and Kiwaya Ukes are wider string spaced at the nut and a little wider at the nut too. Fluke products are wider too as I recall. I’ve made a nut from a...

    Perhaps my original post didn’t make matters crystal clear (sorry) but the axis of rotation of the tuning peg and of the turning handle (along its full length) are meant to be the same. Of course you...

    Looking at the review on the ‘Got a Ukulele Site’ I see that friction Tuners are used. Perhaps you can’t get hold of original parts but I wonder if you could get hold of a set of alternative Tuners...

    Well those are rather fine instruments and somewhat more expensive than anything I play. I’m a bit puzzled, to me something seems not quite right, but if someone can afford and if the shop doesn’t...

    I wonder how much you and your friends pay for your accounts here? I pay nothing for my membership here and that is pretty much the limit of my rights here, and even if I had donated (gifted money)...

    Always like your posts :) . Yes a Uke isn’t small and making music can be done on other things too. I haven’t played a mouth organ (as we call them here) for many decades and I’m not sure what I...

    Sadly the answer is that you basically end up buying blind via mail order and usually don’t get much of an idea in shops. If you’re in a Uke Club you might get to talk to some other players and maybe...

    I’d like to add my thanks to those already expressed. Buddhuu’s been a good Moderator, firm and fair is how I’d describe him. Thankfully the folk here seem to give the mod’s little to do but that’s...

    I’m wondering about the historical context of the Concert size Uke and how that impacts on things. Without today’s amplification a performer might be primarily interested in more volume and a sound...

    Mr T is as expert at marketing as he is at building Ukes (so very skilled). Sometimes they sell for the BIN price somethings the auction doesn’t reach the BIN price and sometimes it exceeds it, well...

    I believe that the current Ukadelic is a painted Waterman and that original Ukadelic was basically a Dolphin with a different bridge and paint job. All the Dolphins that I’ve had would serve me as...

    I suspect that someone got a bargain, well the £200 price I saw in your original post seemed far far too little for the work involved. Your website doesn’t quote prices, if you showed more about the...

    That’s interesting to me. Does it say what size (diameter) strings were used, if so I’d love to know what they were, and was it clear or nylon or some other colour? I take it that those old nylon...

    That would seem a fair way forward to me. A KT 2nd has a value. Mark up the label, take the money and look happy. :)
