    I think I'd go for an all laminate uke rather than plastic. I have a cheap Rubin all laminate in my car and it's been fine.

    By the way, the pictures are brilliant. As a Lancastrian I'd love a copy of the Blackpool picture.

    Maybe George Harrison and Joe Brown for players.
    Totally agree with Jake playing in Central Park. That inspired so many people (including me) to pick up an ukulele

    I bought an Iuke recently and love it. I had to file out the nut grooves to allow for Aquila 95u strings (tuned gCEA at the same pitch as a standard soprano). It only cost me about 38 (brand new) so...

    A quick update to the above review.
    I've now had a go with the nut files. What a difference a 15 minute set up can make. The main problem was the C string (the thickest string). I filed down all the...

    New Iuke

    Hi there.

    Just come back from a holiday in China with a new Iuke in my hand luggage.
    It's a tobacco sunburst standard shaped uke.
    I've seen a few terms used for the smaller-sized ukes and...

    I totally agree. This particular shop had a workbench and tools in the shop where you could actually watch set-ups. The main problem with buying direct from China is the language issue, and this shop...

    I've watched a few youtube videos of NAMM this year and checked out a few websites, but what I've seen so far worries me greatly.

    It's interesting that nobody has jumped to its defense. You usually find people that love them and have had great experiences with them (like the Les Paul uke). Not this one though.

    number 3 for me, but I would prefer a single piece back rather than book-matched.
    It's all down to personal opinion though.

    Wow.

    I've just been looking at your database. Just out of interest, are there any other instruments tuned thed same way as re-entrant ukulele?

    That sounds a nightmare.
    I only know Greyhound Box in Leeds. I work in the printing industry and have used them before. I don't know what they're like on bespoke box making though.

    I'm a bit confused by the whole long-neck soprano idea.
    What is the actual point of one?
    Surely if you want a longer scale buy a concert or a tenor.
