    Dada, a few differences between the S-0 and the newer S-1 are as follows: a) the S-0 has frets that seem "fatter" to me, which is a feature that I like; b) the S-0's fretboard stops just past the...

    Albert, I totally overlooked the fact that your uke is a TENOR! I do apologize, and so honestly I'm not so sure that the Aquilla 33U's would be a good choice, as they are designed specifically...

    Cool, Aremick! It's fun to experiment; you never know when you might stumble onto something interesting!

    That sounds really nice! Beautiful composition too! I'll be anxious to try a "lower-than-standard" tuning on my concert Islander when it arrives! Thanks again for your input!
  13. Thanks, Etudes, that is interesting, and...

    Thanks, Etudes, that is interesting, and probably goes to show that each instrument has its own sweet spot. Now, your Kiwaya is a concert, is that right? And do you use standard...

    Actually, John, I haven't tried the lower tuning on a concert-scale uke yet; I have one on order from The Ukulele Site (an Islander), but I'm not expecting it for several more days. I'll be...
  15. Thank you so much, guys, for all of your...

    Thank you so much, guys, for all of your thoughts. To be honest, I'm a non-reader, and I pretty much do solo outings (with uke and voice), so whether I tune downward a step, or upward a step...

    You bet, John. I know this isn't very well defined, but the thing I liked about that lower tuning on the tenor was that it made everything feel more relaxed, more "jazzy", if you will. And it...
  17. Tuning Down A Full Step On A Concert-Scale Ukulele

    Hi friends, I have had good results in the past with tuning a tenor-scale ukulele down a full step, to "f Bb D G", using Martin M-620 tenor-scale strings. I liked the tone and the feel it...

    Albert, I can vouch for Merlin's suggestion on the Aquila 33U's! They crank right up to "a D F# B" without any problem, and they don't feel "over-tense" at all!

    Dang, hadn't thought about that! Okay, how 'bout passenger compartment when you're driving (and can regulate the "cabin temperature"), then place in trunk when you park and walk away...? :o)

    Rainbow, that makes good sense, and I (and I'm sure many others) appreciate that insight. I have always tended to gravitate toward the passenger compartment, but from now on, I'll opt for the...
