    When I started, (about 5 years ago, I think it was), Kala & Ohana were the names to buy, but as has been said, other manufacturers have caught up, & there are many more decent players out there now....

    Some consider them to be more like a guitar, especially as they are linear tuned DGBE normally, & not like a re entrant gCEA uke. :)

    Two ways to do it....

    If you strum using all 4 finger nails, use the palm/heel of your hand.

    If you strum with a finger, use the heel of your thumb.

    The 'interface' may just be a way of connecting an XLR mic to a computer; for a decent mic, I use a Samson Meteor USB mic, others recommend the Snowball, (can't remember the maker right now).
