    I live in the humid tropics so guitar and ukulele bloat is closer to reality. But when I lived in Washington state some of my guitars suffered cracks in the finish due to wood contraction during the...

    Takamine's Japan made guitars have a date serial number too: year, month, day and production number. Makes dating really easy.

    The density and surface texture also impacts the tone and feel of a string. It's really obvious when you go from different materials—fluorocarbon to composite to nylon. However, even fluorocarbon can...

    If you need Seaguar fluorocarbon line heavier than 80LB there are plenty of options in their big game listings, e.g., Seaguar Pink and Premier are available in 100LB+. I'm not too fond of Seaguar...

    I suspect it will be a long time before things get back to normal in the USA. Even when an inoculation is developed, it is bound to be expensive and, yeah, what an opportunity for big drug companies....

    I've tried a lot of string sets and have not found one perfect for my needs. The solution was to customize by mixing and matching sets or, my ultimate solution, roll my own from Seaguar Pink and...

    OF love Snarks due to the giganormous size (the failing eyesight thang). They do look out of place on a soprano... But, yeah, the NS sound hole is one of my favs if it fits. Unfortunately it it...

    Yeah, Kala is great for the bucks but if you can't find one that kinda narrows it down to Alvarez and Takamine! I've seen a lot of nice ukuleles made by guitar companies—Martin and Asturias come to...

    One of my guitar students fell at an ice rink and someone skated over his left-hand pinky, severing it near the middle joint. The doc sewed it back on but both sensation and control were nearly...

    That's a hard instrument to come by. I tried to get one but every dealer ran out of stock very quickly. I seem to recall, at least the original design, was a 21" scale a notch better for E to E...

    That Levy's strap is one of my favs: soft leather backing with jacquard cloth. I own a few of the other 1/2" jacquard straps and never remove from my ukuleles and guileles. The 1" Levy's versions are...

    I've never played a 20 inch scale guilele or requinto that sounded good tuned E to E. Yes, you can tune E to E but what a floppy, wimpy sound and feel, even with really heavy strings. G to G (terz)...

    As your tastes evolve, you'll likely sell or give away many ukuleles long before you hit 75. So maybe a couple dozen really nice ukuleles might remain for the afterlife.

    Looks like you're doing a single finger rasgueado with the finger too deep into the string. About 1mm penetration of the fingernail is all you need. I use rasgueado extensively but the entire stroke...

    The A-Frame MI works in a similar manner but is more portable—folds and fits in the outer pocket of many gig bags. The main problem with suction cups is they only work on glossy finishes. And, dad...

    I like my ukulele straps soft—glove leather backed with cloth—and 1/2" to 1" in width. Comfy and I can leave it installed while the instrument is stowed in the case. I've had to toss out a few...

    Lots of tenors, a couple baritones, lots of guitars and a bass. To me they're all basically the same instrument but scaled up and down.
