  1. Review: Aklot Eight String Tenor Ukulele

    This review has been out a week, but I had waited to post my review of the Ohana BKT-70G until hearing back from Ohana (there was an issue to clear up), so I postponed posting this review. I will be...

    Anyone else pay attention to Vision playing ukulele in episode 2 of Wandavision?

    Play it a lot. The squeak does wear off. Aquila has always suggested some lotion on the fingertips before playing.

    I find it curious that they are introducing a concert HPL model after cancelling the soprano line last year.

    As for all the suggestions of different prints, I'd guess that decisions are made based...

    I'd check in with Ken Middleton (Living Water Strings) and see what he would suggest. Certainly reentrant dGBE tuning would be feasible--I wonder about the low D. I'm sure it has been done and will...
  6. Review: Ohana BKT-70G Short Scale Baritone Ukulele

    I like this idea a lot: baritone body with tenor neck, for those that want baritone resonance with tenor feel. I find GCEA tuning on a baritone a bit tight for my personal tastes.

    This one would...

    You might be able to order them from Music Shop Europe (they ship internationally), but shipping is really messed up due to COVID-19. As a result, the next shipment from Flight isn't due for several...

    KoAloha does have the better than the weather warranty, even on the KoAlohas. If it is something as easily fixable as a faulty friction peg, they might very well just send you one in the mail.

    Review: Rainbow Colours Soprano Ukulele

    I review a lot of entry level instruments, but most are serviceable.

    This one was completely unplayable out of the box--and was ordered from a music education specialist dealer. Someone should...

    One of the things I'm doing is reviewing ukuleles, hopefully in a different enough way from Barry's reviews to add some value in the ukulele community, albeit with my perspective as a teacher. That...

    I know you're all talking about K models at the moment, but even in the entry level market, there's definitely a trend away from the very dark antique finishes, such as those found on the Makala...

    Review: Nanecki SA-10 Soprano Ukulele

    We've all seen some pretty horrific painted ukuleles. Good news: this one isn't horrible. That said, there are a lot of very decent concert ukuleles that are $20 to $25 more with a much better gig...

    The saddle should be removable, if it is like my wood top/plastic Ukadelic. More important is to pay attention to the nut...what's the action like at the 1st fret?

    I'm curious as to the time needed to order one like this? I ask because we will eventually go to Hawaii, and my goal is to buy a Kamaka there (I already have KoAloha and Kanile'a taken care of). ...
  18. Review: Hricane UKSS-02 Concert Ukulele

    A laminate entry level ukulele that is just fine and will offer years of service, but not a very exciting combination.

  21. Review: Ohana Vintage Vita Concert Ukulele VKC-70Cha-te

    I generally like clear fluorocarbon strings, and Martin M600s or M620 (Tenor) are my go-to for reentrant tuning. They are available everywhere, and feel/sound good to me in most applications. So...

    Review: Donner DUC-200 Concert Ukulele

    It’s a basic ukulele package, but other than the strap, I like it

    It’s funny how a slight difference in stain can result in a completely different vibe. Not vintage, not pale. I like it.

    And...

    Just a note: many songs seem to work well in F and G for children; I usually start there as a teacher and move as necessary.
