    I've gone the Travel Uke route. It isn't all that fulfilling. I have a Kala Travel Concert that is fun to play, and looks nice. The only thing "travel" about it is its thin body. It's as if Kala...

    The "Trilby" is the classic Ukulele players' hat, like what Jake or Aldrine wears. I have a nice straw Trilby made by Ben Sherman, with a wooden Ukulele pin on the band. Can't say that it helps my...

    For me, playing a standard strung Baritone is an exercise in sight transposition. The Bari is just a Ukulele in a different key. I grew up playing the French Horn. Historically, the Horn came in...

    Odd Noise from PickUp

    I just bought the Getaria Wireless System, 2.4 Hz model. It works fine with several of my Ukuleles. But on one with an LR Baggs Five 0 pickup, it produces a clearly audible constant tone that...

    I have three thoughts on this. First , try different strings. Second is the fact that it's the C string giving the trouble. That string, regardless of tuning, is the root note of the home key of...
