    'Ukuleles featured in commercials

    I detect a drastic increase in commercials which use an ‘ukulele in their soundtrack. Most such commercials don’t show the ‘ukulele, but you can recognize the distinctive sound.

    The sliding toggle switch is to select only the neck pickup, or to select both pickups, or to select only the bridge pickup.

    The top knob is for volume, the lower knob is for tone.

    I can't imagine why anyone would put one of these in a landfill. The intonation is easily adjustable. You can swap strings to tune it like a baritone if you wish (I have). You could swap the pickups...

    Keep looking. Some 4-string...

    There are also podcasts which are not specifically about 'ukulele, but which have a few episodes featuring 'ukulele music. It's easy to download those specific episodes and give a listen.

    Very interesting. Thanks for the news, and for the vid.

    I have my eye on a case which is available in the UK, but not in the USA. I understand what you mean about shipping costs.

    There is a Luna Bass Ukulele on Reverb at the moment. That is tuned one octave higher than a U-bass. Since you're in the UK that probably won't help you. Sorry.

    ^This^
    Tenor 'ukuleles tend to have "higher tension" (feel more difficult to fret). A common remedy is to use concert strings on the tenor and feel "less tension" as a result.

    I keep wanting to get one, but haven't yet. I really like the sound, and the maple binding.
    I don't play bass, and the prospect of learning the new tuning slows me down.

    I have a 17" scale ukulele. I sometimes use tenor strings, and sometimes use concert strings. I have never found that concert strings were too short for the tenor scale, and they are easier to fret.
