    If the T1K hadn't just come to my doorstep a month ago, the mahogany T1 Streetmaster would have probably been my choice. As I am happy with the Koa Uke, I won't sweat it. Looking forward to a...

  6. Recipe: Bechemel Croissant with Ham and cheese

    There's a French Bakery that serves Bechemel Croissants. Since I am not near them, I had to bring them to me. I made my own croissants, but you can buy some and try this recipe. It is delicious.

    My current rotation is a binary approach. I have one uke so it is either 1. in my hands or 0. not in my hands. I don't keep it it the case, and I always have it nearby.

    Thank you so much for this information Jerryc41. I just ordered a set and borrowed 3 smackers for a single low g string to come with it. Now let's hope it doesn't take too long to get here.
