    I use Living Water low G concert strings on my acacia KoAloha Opio long neck concert; as I do on most of my tenor & concert scale ukes, including my long neck sopranos. :)

    A lot of Irish music is in the key of D, some in key of G, & a few in the key of A.

    Low & high whistles are commonly in the key of D, as are simple system flutes.

    Hope that helps.

    As I have said earlier - the point of having a concert scale on a soprano body is for those people who prefer a concert scale, mainly for the extra frets, but the little bit of extra room on the...

    For personal use, I'm happy with my Roland Micro Cube, & my little Honeytone - not sure they'd be what you're looking for - just thought I'd mention them. :)

    If your harps are diatonic (10 hole) & you have furry pets, it's likely a strand of fur is blocking it.

    If they are chromatic, the valves are likely stuck together (happens when you blow minute...

    The Kala cedar top is a great sounding uke, (I have the baritone version), just put some fluorocarbon strings on it. :)

    I think it is best to strum half way along the strings, but when picking, it is often easiest nearer the sound hole. :)

    I agree, a lot of people are expecting magic when they buy a custom uke. :)

    I'm with you on not wanting rope binding, much prefer plain wood, (with maybe a tasteful rosette).

    Acacia is slightly louder than mahogany, but it also has a kind of crispness to its tone, I was...

    A while back, I would definately have said Kala - & I expect I did. ;)

    Nowadays, it is mainly KoAloha Opio, (with a touch of Ohana thrown in), both are long neck concerts. :D

    Putting fluorocarbon strings, (in my case Living Water low G), on it certainly improves its tone.
    As it comes, it does sound a bit dead to my ears, but we're all different, no problem in that, it's...

    If you don't have many ukes, just change them when you feel the need - if like a lot of us who have a 'few' ukes, it could get expensive. ;)
