    That sounds exciting! My Beansprout is scheduled for December, and like you, I'm still mulling over the options. Your special project with Jon is intriguing. Any hints? :confused:

    Anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, almost every day. I go into withdrawal if I miss a day. I'd probably make better progress if I had a fixed practice routine, but that's too much like work. I...

    Looks like my acquisitions will be having a bit of a dry spell. I put a deposit down for a Beansprout (Aaron Kime) custom build in December 2021. Not yet sure what I'm going to get, but I'm pretty...

    I love my Mahogany Tiny Tenor. If I didn't have a substantial custom build ($$$) coming due at the end of this year, I'd be seriously considering an AMM3. Congratulations!

    Colin Tribe has a nice arrangement and I believe he will share it for a small fee. His contact information is in the YouTube video description.

    I may have "misspoken" Let's just say that Kasha bracing seems to provide no particular benefit for reentrant tuning.

    Very interesting experiment. The double-back doesn't seem to do a whole lot and the Kasha bracing does little more than add some bass (and eliminates the option of reentrant tuning). It seems like...

    I'm just guessing, but having a competent luthier/craftsman fix those cracks would probably run you a couple of hundred dollars. It's not a repair job for an inexperienced amateur. That brings your...

    I will never conduct an online transaction payment as a "gift." There is absolutely zero protection for both the buyer and the seller. There's no recourse if you send the money and receive a broken...

    I currently have them on two ukuleles, a Cocobolo Concert and a Jupiter Tenor. I like them a lot. Good sound, good tension, good overall!

    99% of the time you will not sell a ukulele for the price you purchased. It's like an automobile...you drive it away from the dealership and you've lost 10% or 15% of what you paid.

    No, thank you. Some mango can be pretty ugly in its natural state. That treatment makes it even worse. :(

    Several years ago, Cocobolo Ukulele made a few ukuleles with Cocobolo back and sides and a Cedar top. I was fortunate to obtain a concert and it's a sonic gem. My only complaint about it is the very...

    Installing strap buttons does not break the ukulele or ruin the sound. Just about every steel-string acoustic guitar has strap buttons installed at the factory and no one complains about them.

    Avoid the Moleskine journals. The paper is not fountain-pen-friendly (feathering, bleed-through, etc.). Rhodia, Clairfontaine, Black-and-Red are all good paper choices.
