    That’s good thinking, guess I have to start playing it starting from today. :)



    Brave move! Glad that it turned out well in the end for you. As a buyer, I would most probably haggle just a bit...

    That.. I couldn’t answer. I can’t imagine selling my kamaka at $600 unless it has serious marks and dents on it. I guess it’s a different kind of evaluation for higher end ukes. I would price at $750...

    Thats a good way to price sensibly. There’s also a lack of enough ukulele players as well at my side. I got this 1 in 1 out policy going on, so if I would have to sell the least play uke to make room...

    Well, my uke is the M6 tenor with the active pickup, so it’s the one priced at 330 USD as on the enya website. With the tax, it’s about 360 USD when I bought it. So there isn’t any markup by the uke...

    I did sort of inferred no haggle in the original listing but I have added explicitly “no haggle” to my ad yesterday. Well the platform I use have an indicator on my 100% response on queries. So would...

    Share your uke haggling experience

    This is a rant and I need to get this out of my system.

    So the story goes like this, 3 months ago, I put up my Enya M6 tenor up for listing on a local buy/sell online platform. I’m selling it only...

    I think you may have misspelled the brand, “Ribbee”. I did a search on it and found this:

    They even have their own retail shop!
    From the...

    Just found out these are around for quite a while, and I didn’t know about it! If it’s made by Kiwaya, it’s totally worth it.

    That would work great I can imagine that. A sachet of dried flower petals and aroma wood twigs may be more natural smelling?

    Congrats, mine smells of fresh wood shaving though, made in 2017. The sound hole smell level should be part of the listing specs for Martin ukes.

    I had the same experience when I switched my tenor to low G. It does transform the uke entirely. Now my concert is in low G as well, but wounded string which seems to have an even longer sustain and...

    That’s good to hear too. The koa bird series are good choices. I had the rare chance to play the koa bird (1k) side by side with the Hawaii K brands and I would say it’s on par and even exceeds on...

    Bamboos are gone too. Hope they are coming up with new lines as well.

    Great find and deal you got there! and that’s a huge discount for the almost negligible spot. I have played the 1K koa birds and they sound great and easy to play. You will love it.

    I played both nylon and fluorocarbon (M600) stringed ukes daily. I would be able to tell if the M600 is sounding like nylon.

    That’s how they work, the heavier and bulky would always get priority to be properly stored. Protocols.

    Well you did passed the carry on baggage size upon boarding so I don’t get why the attendants still gave grief about it. It’s funny that they ham on this rather than some really really heavy baggage...

    I have tried both low G of the tenor scale on the same uke. They are different but not that much of a difference except for the tonal quality. The brown set is more dark tone but definitely not...

    I would let the Takumi go if I’m in your spot. A good vintage Martin is not an everyday find you know.

    My current gigbag so far seems pretty sturdy, despite not looking like a typical gig bag. Maybe I should add extra own protection on my own, i.e bubble wrap the uke.

    I thought of using a hardcase...
