    While I'm only a few years into ukulele, I've played trumpet semi-professionally for several years in different groups. I think there are different skills about being a musician that some are better...

    Hello!
    I made a short video of me playing my Sandstrom Banjo-Ukulele.

    Best to ignore the signer...and most of the playing. ;)

    Excellent idea to start with. After watching a few YouTube videos, you realize how simple these are. After 55+ years since my mom bought this and decades of sitting in a closet, I bet a couple of...

    Thanks for the insights. While looking at the Grover I found this listing for Baritone Uke specific pegs. They don't give you a lot of details, so I can only assume these are slightly bigger? Maybe...

    I should add a little more background. This is for a 1960's era Silvertone (Sears Brand) Baritone Uke. The tuning pegs are tired and hard to control. I think perhaps just newer and better quality...
  14. Replacing Friction tuning pegs with geared ones?

    Can anyone tell me whether there is a product out there that's relatively easy and not too invasive to swap out friction tuning pegs for something that's geared or at least easier to adjust and hold...

    Banjo-Uke Strings

    Happy Friday!

    I found a used (but basically new) customized Deering Goodtime. It was made by a guy when he worked at the factory and he made the body and neck for himself out of a knurled walnut...

    Thank you. It pretty much hurts no matter what I play. I have a 1920's Soprano Banjo Ukulele, a cheapish concert, and recently treated myself to a KoAloha Tenor. I haven't noticed that one causes...

    Relatively new Uke player here, but long-time musician (jazz trumpet). Uke is the first stringed instrument that I would admit to knowing how to play.
