    I agree entirely on the tuning. My Kala Pocket Uke is tuned cFAD and sounds pretty good; certainly wouldn't want it any higher.

    I bought an SK-38 as my first decent uke after starting with a very basic laminate. It was on my shortlist, but the model I really wanted was a Mainland. However, when I tried the Mainland and...

    Am I misremembering or does a transparent banjolele briefly appear in the Mighty Uke film?

    That is helpful, thank you. It's interesting to me that here in the UK the Fluke and Flea don't seem to be widely stocked these days, but Fireflies are quite readily available.

  7. Magic Fluke Firefly: How are they holding up?

    The Firefly banjoleles have been out for a few years now and I was wondering how people have found them performing in terms of durability.

    Initially there seemed to be a lot of sceptical comment...

    Mahogany. It was a very unexpected and generous gift from an old friend; and to be honest I think I would have passed it by in the shop simply because it wasn't a soprano and had geared tuners (I've...

    Surprisingly pleasant tone and loud enough for my purposes (I bought it to give playing tenor a try, as I mainly play soprano), but it's not especially loud. A couple of my sopranos can outdo it for...

    This is something I was happy about with the Kala Pocket uke. I picked up a B-stock mahogany model a while ago (ex-display, I suspect) and the proportions seem right to me, decently balanced without...

    Not much playing today, but took the plunge and removed the guitar-style tuners from my Mele concert, replacing them with Gotoh UPTs. A wonderful improvement, although annoyingly there's now a buzz...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I do like the look of the Duke.

    A Magic Fluke Company soprano Flea was my most recent purchase, a fairly basic one with the standard polycarbonate fretboard and orange (sorry, mango) top. Very much enjoying how immediately playable...
  15. A new set of tuners for my Bambookulele.

    As something of a test run for doing the same to my Mele Concert uke I switched the geared guitar-style tuners on my tenor Moselele Bambookulele for a set of friction pegs bought from andybanjo....

    I prefer a satin finish to the entire ukulele, to be honest. Gloss always seems to be trying to distract from the look of the wood.

    It's a crowded marketplace these days, especially towards the more affordable end: I expect we'll be seeing more and more decorated ukes as companies try to make their product stand out. Certainly...

    Keef, I'm afraid I can't help with a recommendation for someone in your area, but I will say that getting the work done will be worth it. I followed that auction out of interest as I have the same...

    At last! Been keenly awaiting this review since you first teased it. There's no way my ability or spare cash can justify getting a Kamaka, but it's my longer-term goal.

    There's a copy on eBay at the moment (postage to the UK is too high for me, alas) and the listing does mention that it's not available in stores. Probably true, but obviously it's not an official...

    Quite an unusual beast, that, definitely exploring the fuzzy region where a uke becomes something different. Mind you, I don't think many baritones sound particularly like ukuleles so it's not as if...
