    I'm not talking about a gloss/lacquer finish in all cases - some will be finished with oil. Raw maple is pretty rare.

    Ah, the great lemon oil debate :) I'm actually pretty sure that lemon oil isn't used on maple boards because they are usually finished and the oil simply isn't needed and wouldn't penetrate. So where...

    Q. What's the definition of perfect pitch?

    A. Throwing a ukulele into a rubbish bin... and hitting a mandolin.

    D'Addario make nyltech strings - they are listed as being 'ivory'. They're based on the same formula as nylguts but manufactured by D'Addario.

    I wonder if it's possible that something got inside the body of the uke? (maybe when you changed the strings?) I've had this happen - little bits of 'stuff' rattling about inside the instrument. A...

    Kala SMHB truss rod adjustment

    Hi there,

    I've been having some buzzing issues lately with my Kala baritone. I'm not sure of the exact cause - I have a number of theories:

    I think DownUpDave is talking about swapping individual strings of the same gauge while other people are talking about the difference between complete sets.

    Edit: I would suggest that it's worth...

    The vinegar loosened up the rust and I got most of the residue off with some wire wool. The tuners are back on now and I'm just waiting for the strings to arrive. The uke is looking good - I mean...

    I had a Pono AC and sold it. I'm inclined to agree with the opinion that smaller Ponos lack something, based on personal experience.

    With your budget you could consider the LoPrinzi model A.

    NUUD: Makala MK-SN 5

    What colour are the unwound strings?

    They could be the Aquila 116U baritone Lava set (grey/black supernylgut).
