    He goes from 3rd fret to 5th, then 10th to 9th.

    Hi Vic, I have the KAT3 tenor, all solid mahogany, 12 fret with peg bridge, modeled after old Martin tenors. I like it a lot, sweet tone, plays very easily. I use it as my primary reentrant tenor. ...

    How about a Reboxing video, when you dislike the uke, and pack it to send back? I looked, but couldn't find any! ;)

    Baby it's dry inside

    Was shocked to see 16% humidity today in my house. About the driest I've seen indoors here in MA. We have forced hot air heat, the norm is 25-35% in winter, which is still pretty dry. So, in-case...

    I assume that some lucky soul(s) at Martin get to take the original Konter uke out of its glass case and play it occasionally. I wonder how it sounds, and how often they do that?

    So true. I always find it interesting when some folks, who play longer scale linear ukes, sometimes even tuned down, find any reentrant uke to be plinky, toy-like or grating. Then there's the...

    For me, it was #1, had an extra/under-used tenor here, so I strung it baritone. It was a fun experiment, and it is getting played much more now.

    Maybe try the 3-pack of low G Fremonts from Lucy's Ukes on eBay, one wound, 1 Blackline, 1 clear, a bit of variety. I'm still working on the Soloist, but will be trying one of the other 2 soon.
