    My favourite brands are definitely the three K brands. I have visited their factories, some of them multiple times, and when you get to know the people who make the ukes there's just no alternative....

    For Kamaka we should also distinguish between Pineapple and regular shape.

    I think that this would be an octave lower G, the included G is already like the original.

    Congrats on the Opio. I tried a few of them in the KoAloha showroom and found them very likeable for sure. The crown fretboard is a great design feature and one of the reasons I have a 2000 KoAloha...

    Description almost sounds like a tenor guitar and not a baritone uke. Those tend to be tuned in fifths.

    They add weight and if attached to top will diminish vibrations. If you don't intend to plug it makes more sense to spend money on better uke quality as half of value is tied up in electronics for a...

    32% humidity in the house now time to refill the Oasis soon. I humidify three ukes and four guitars and refill them every week. It's a bit of an effort.

    There is also the matter of seasonal changes. If humidity is constantly moist or dry eventually the uke will be in equilibrium with that and be fine. But in my area humidity in the summer is pleasant...

    Congrats Uncle Rod. Looking forward to a review and I hope that duckie will like her new headstock.

    I am simply not a good enough player to venture past the fifth fret and I only play concert and tenor ukes including high end models. There is not enough space there for me to play ringing notes that...

    Too bad. I have two Ovation guitars that sound fantastic acoustically but they have Sitka and Carbon Fibre tops respectively. The lower end Ovation guitars can also be disappointing.

    I am wondering what's the purpose of changed tuning? I play a lot with other people in uke circles and acoustic jams and the transposing acrobatics would be quite demanding. On the other hand for the...

    Probably depends on the strings how floppy they go and associated loss of volume and punch.

    I just came across this demo of a cuatro string set. Sounds interesting, but definitely not like ukulele to my ears:

    Historically Martin has built great mahogany ukes, so if they had a C1M model that would be my choice. Mass produced koa ukes are not necessarily great players.

    Sustain and low end are not necessarily desirable ukulele sound characteristics. I started out with tenor size and low G, but the last uke I bought was a long neck soprano. I like it.

    I always thought that for fifth tuning you need different saddle compensation because the range of string thickness is much larger. Have you thought about getting a different saddle for the fifth set...

    Nice tune and great playing. I cannot hear anything out of tune though I am used to my ukes that really have bad intonation. But if it hurts your ear try thicker strings or change saddle...

    Guitar players usually associate black nylon with cheap folk guitars, ukulele, and flamenco. So if sound is different because of colour or because of different playing style and instrument is the big...

    Buying single strings is often more expensive than a whole set

    California Claro Walnut is supposed to have similar stiffness to Mahogany or Koa so likely would also have similar sound. I would find an all walnut uke very appealing as I have a guitar with walnut...
