    Thanks Jim. Jarmo, I think it sounds beautiful on my bari, rather guitar-like, but of course it's a matter of personal taste.

    Jupu, the tuning I suggested should work for you. You can use a G...

    One of my baritones is tuned A-D-F#-B but not re-entrant. I use a classical guitar A string for the low A, and regular DGB baritone uke strings for the others. If you want to do re=entrant A,...

    Good find! I hadn't seen that one. So it could be either one, I guess.

    Yes indeed, Kala does make baritones -- I've got one. But I don't believe they make a baritone with a built-in pickup, in that product line.

    Agree on the first one, it's hard to tell. On the second, I would have guessed tenor. It looks like it has a built-in pickup, and I didn't think Kala offered that model in a baritone with a...

    It is fun trying out different tunings, and I'm digging the F Bb D G on my tenor. Have you retuned your concert yet to this tuning?

    You are welcome.

    And Bill, I'm liking this tuning a lot on my tenor. It opens up some good possibilities for me.

    In general, if you're switching from G-C-E-A tuning to F-Bb-D-G tuning, you would move each chord two frets higher up the neck.

    If using Bill's tuning of F-Bb-D-G, you could play an F chord this way: 4th string open (because it's an F), third string second fret (that's a C), second string third fret (that's an F), and first...

    Bill, sorry I can't answer your question as I don't play concert, but I'm gonna try your tuning on my tenor. Thanks for the post!

    I believe that's right, the same thing doesn't exist the other way. That's because our Customs workers work for the national government. The sales tax you pay, goes to an individual state, not the...

    Jim is right, it is complicated. Here in the States, we don't have a national sales tax. The individual states determine their sales tax, and what products it applies to. And then individual...

    Yes, to your first question -- you will have to pay sales tax. In Arizona the basic sales tax rate is 5.6%, but individual cities in Arizona may add their own additional sales tax.

    When you have a chance, let us know what you think about the Hadean Rondo, before and after the changes. I hadn't heard of that brand until I got here to the UU bass section.

    Looks very cool. Do resonator ukes use a different type of string, or can they use any uke string?
