    Kiwaya KS-5 is now also sold! Only the Magic Fluke Firefly remains. Price lowered to 130€, includes shipping within Europe.

    By pass through, do you mean that the strings go through the bridge inside the sound chamber?

    Ok, so if we disregard the guitar aspect completely and just look at the two models, I think you should base your choice on which sound you like best as otherwise they are almost identical regarding...

    I watch SUS's Youtube channel regularly and they've mentioned that Snail ukes are quite similar to Flight. I'm guessing that assessment includes quality as well, although I haven't tried a Snail uke...

    Awesome, glad to hear you finally got the long-awaited uke! I want to see photos of that beauty once you've managed to get it out of the case. Also, I might be receiving a very similar package in the...

    They do indeed do setups and the Artec pickup in Flight ukes is supposedly good quality. Then again, I'm not an expert on pickups either so I definitely don't want to override other people's opinions...

    I'm going to disagree with the few others above and push you towards getting a new uke. One of the joys of ukulele for me is that, because they are relatively cheap instruments, it's easy (and fun)...

    Have you tried microwaving your strings?

    All joking aside... I would also recommend trying nylon strings for a warmer sound if brown/black fluorocarbon doesn't do it for you. Even clear nylon...

    I had actually been eyeing some of the UK builders, particularly Ken Timms and Liam Kirby, but ultimately I decided that I'm good on mahogany sopranos with my Kiwaya and Martin. I still wanted a...

    Yes, tenor strings is the answer. These kinds of ukes are often called long neck concerts or super concerts or whatever, but ultimately it's the scale length of the instrument that matters, and the...

    Thanks for the comment! I don't actually doubt this at all. You can see the difference in pricing as well (although it's not always a clear indicator). The Rebels are slightly more expensive than the...

    Awesome. I'm really glad you found a great uke in the end. I think I mentioned before that I haven't tried a Noah uke myself but I've heard so much positives about them that I had no doubt you'd get...

    Oh absolutely. They have a tenor uke called The Particle which is astonishing to look at and has like four different woods used to build it. Even the fretboard is divided into two different woods....

    It's hard for me to love a uke before actually buying it because I rarely have the opportunity to try one before buying. Which I guess is the main reason I'm asking for opinions and experiences. I am...

    I had a feeling this might be the case. I'm guessing the Rebel ukes are more comparable to the KoAloha Opio range, and since I have a Hawaiian-made KoAloha I don't think I can justify getting the...

    Well, the overall score was 8.6 which was the real surprise for me and an indicator of positivity. Obviously, the 'value for money' always inflates the overall score for cheaper instruments but the...

    Tell you what... to sweeten the deal, I'll include shipping in the price within Europe. These ukes really need to go. :)
