    They're pretty cool little ukes. I tried one once but it wasn't what I was looking for at the time so I missed out. I didn't know there was a UPT option. I'm surprised there's room for UPTs on that...

    Since people are mentioning Kala (solid top only), I'll add Cordoba 24C. I've got the 24B and like it a lot.

    Haha, probably the opposite of Spiderman fingers! One tip I've heard (and it sort of works for me) is to use hand lotion if the strings are squeaking. I think it depends on your skin type/condition...

    I agree. Strings are such a personal thing. What one person absolutely loves and recommends, you may detest. Not just the sound, but the thickness and texture of the strings and apparent tension as...

    If you keep the pegs, see what tips you can find online for making them more usable. Last year some online tips saved me from going batty helping my wife tune her new violin! :rolleyes:

    I'm very curious to know how this turns out. I really loved the way the sugars chimed, but had to take them off due to squeaking. If the squeak is gone but the sound is still so nice, I'll buy the...

    Depends on the song or even the part of the song. If there's a lot of sequential strings or focusing on a single string, then it's easy to go for the thumb. Also, Jerry's technique and sometimes full...

    Very nice and I like the story that goes with it. I was looking at the violin pegs and I actually thought they were pegheds at first, so it wouldn't change the look much if you did that mod. Or keep...

    It's probably better I don't know, but I'm going to ask: Who is the Canadian internet seller?

    Okay, I'm preparing myself for the feats of mental strength required to not buy one. :rolleyes:

    I'm not a fan of the vertical video either, but I think it might become more common as it seems the preferred format for mobile apps like Instagram and probably most apps used by kids. There's...

    I wish I had your skill/luck. I can change my mind from day to day which one I like better when I listen to those. But I see from your signature, you're shopping in a completely different price...

    Even if you have very different preferences for your ukulele than Barry, you can make informed decisions from his reviews. e.g. "Barry doesn't like that neck profile, but I do. Now I know about the...

    Confirms my recollection of the Fremonts being thinner than a lot of the other strings I've used. Good to hear you found something you really like.

    Recently, I was reading about constructing with a hardwood laminate for back and sides because it would achieve the effect of reflecting back the sound similar to a solid hard wood. The laminate wood...

    Good to know local sources. The selection in Vancouver isn't great relative to the size of the metro area. Tough to find many brands here.

    Caveat: Amazon reviews are next to useless for evaluating your ukulele. Find the reviews here, gotaukulele.com or other ukulele specific sites.

    A little googling and you'll see the virus wouldn't survive the trip over on a package. But, you can probably get by with less stuff from Aliexpress, so don't order if it's not important.

    Interesting how my opinion changes when they're assembled! The volcano headstock was my third choice, but it looks amazing with the lava down the fretboard and the drop on the bridge.

    Wow, forget about the KA-SLNG, bring back this one!

    In reality, I'd probably be shopping for something with a wider neck if I bought another "small body concert". Maybe a Famous FLS.

    I kinda like that Kala bamboo. Unfortunately, bridges with screw caps are a deal killer for me, visually speaking. Quite a few on that video. Don't recall seeing that feature on Kala's in the past....

    Can't speak for the newer ones, but my 2015 SLNG had a 35 mm nut and was quite nice. Bought from a big chain music store, but luckily, setup from Kala was good.

    Yeah, I was a little disappointed too. That was what I started on. If it wasn't for YouTube and UU, I probably would have stuck with it. ;)
