    I prefer laminate (plywood) mostly because I don’t like messin’ with all the humidity stuff. I do have a Kala KA FMB baritone with a solid top and a spalted body, and I really like it a lot. I also...

    I use picks sometimes, but I think I enjoy fingers better. Especially if I’m just noodling some stuff by ear. I use picks under .050 mm like “Ukulele for Dummies” suggests. I mostly use Dunlop...

    I can already finger pick okay by ear, tabs or staff music. Where I fall apart is adding chords to my tunes and memorizin’ stuff. There’s not much I can do about the memorizing though.

    I suppose you could buy a banjo strap with the small leather attachers. I don’t like them though. They twist and get tangled. :old:

    Actually, I don’t know what a GCEA baritone is or how to tune it an octave lower than anything. A baritone ukulele is tuned to Lo D GBE, and that’s why it’s a baritone Uke. I suppose one can tune it...

    Okay — good. As I said before I like mine. However, I like my Kala KA GTR tenor guitar way better, and one could always change the strings to Aquilas. It seems to me that it’s a lot more...

    I have a spalted, spruce top Kala KA-FMB which went for $300 a while back, but I paid less than that. I like it a lot.

    Croaky, I’ve never seen one with reed plates that would fit badly enough to leak air. It’s the covers that fit poorly because they bend or twist. If one has a harp that cannot be tightened up with...

    [QUOTE=Nickie;2200013]Also, it helps greatly if you have a good quality, airtight harmonica. It is really hard to bend on a leaky cheap harmonica.

    I'm not sure I understand the difference.
