    I've never been a fan of Kala. The bulk of their ukuleles are all-laminate models that sound mediocre at best. Their all-solid imported models always seemed to be noticeably worse sounding than...

    I think the KoAlanas are supposed to be like Kanilea's Islander series. Beginner-level prices and sound quality, but with the same shaped necks as the company's primary products. Then when you...

    A good shop will mount a low-G string on a ukulele that you buy from them, often for no extra charge if they are doing a setup anyway. They should make sure there is room in the nut or widen the nut...

    I've been to the Ukulele Site stores in Honolulu a few times. Those guys are as nice and knowledgeable in person as they are in the videos. Personally, I really like their Opio and Pono ukuleles in...

    Really hard to tell without being able to see your complete strumming stroke. I can only guess that you are strumming with too much elbow and too little wrist. Try watching the "how to strum" videos...

    Are these "Japanese luthiers based in Hawaii" the Mitsuba company? They've been making ukuleles in Honolulu for several years under the GCEA and Maililei brand names. Last year when I visited Hawaii,...

    Is that for real? If you're really worried about that, you could just slack or cut the strings before pulling the pins.

    If you have a Kanilea or similar, use a pin puller tool. This is one of the easiest styles of bridge to change the strings on.

    There is only so much that strings can do with a quiet instrument. I would try Uke Logic or Worth high tension fluorocarbons. High tension will generally give you more volume and clarity than low...

    Depends on the quality and the price. I don't think a cheap plastic binding adds anything and can hide flaws. A pretty wood binding is worth paying something for, but those are a big price increase...

    I think that Kala you list is discontinued and you may have a hard time finding a new one. I've never heard of anyone liking Bondi. Pono has always been great from what I've seen.

    If you don't want US-made or China-made, Martin, Opio, Pono, Kiwaya, and Anuenue make great ukuleles in other countries.

    I regularly see Joe and Kristen Souza (the owners of Kanile'a) at ukulele events that are organized by Craig & Sarah. I'm sure that whatever business arrangement they have is very friendly.
