    I think you should go to the UGH tomorrow through Sunday, and make some friends.

    And Andrew can probably bring one in for you if he doesn’t have one in stock; that’s well within his wheelhouse I’d...

    I’ll just throw it out there, 6’s sound weird, for lack of a better term. However, it depends on who’s playing it. I can’t, because I’m listening for a low G, not a low A. And, the high C is too...

    If it’s your first 6, find a Kamaka 6 and play it so you can get a baseline of what a 6 sounds like in your hands. Lili’u tuning is different from any 4. I made a 6, but tuned it like an 8, minus 2...

    I have a Roland Microcrap, waste of money. Their StreetCube is better, but not by much. I’d start at their 330 if I was in the market for one. And yes, I’ve owned or played...

    My DeWalt variable is a workhorse for me - too much to list.

    If the DeWalt dies, I'd get another one. Admittedly, seriously looking at a Mirka, only because I was looking at a Festool, and the...

    I don’t think anyone has an issue with plastic for the Uke Ratio, just WHERE it’s used.

    But, it’s so cheap, if it wears out, just replace them.

    They’re not plastic in the Bic pen or plastic bottle sense.

    Patent pending, super low wear, no backlash. . . Smooth, almost pneumatic feel.

    There will be a day for cool metal ones, at a higher...

    Just sent Dave a message with some feedback.

    As stated, I think the China market will eat it up, and then some.

    Yes, and yes, sometimes.

    Basically, years of trying out different sets, finding out what works, what doesn’t, and what I can do with the strings on my instruments. It took a while for me to...

    Hide glue, CA, Epoxy, and Titebond original (which is pretty much being replaced by hhg).

    If you're already used to HHG, you're steps ahead with no learning curve.

    Beautiful Allen, as usual.

    Interesting wood, looks almost like Alaskan Yellow Cedar, in its color tone anyway. Awesome “clean” figure.

    How do the TI flats work with the cedar top?
