    Despite the name, the sound hole isn't primarily responsible for the sound - sound is created by the top vibrating. As long as you're not compressing the top and muffling it, the sound should be...

    There might not be much in the way of chime, Jim, but it has a lovely sweet and mellow voice over my headphones. That finish looks really tactile as well. Nice!

    Absolutely, but this Fluke really sings in C tuning so ideally I'd keep it there.

    Quick update on these: I've ended up loving these strings. Highly recommended.

    Downside is that last night I noticed the top of my Fluke dishing under the tension. I've not owned a Fluke before so...

    Thanks! I agree, find the baritone really comfy. This one a bit larger than most but it's a nice size to play.



    Haha, take the plunge Dave, you get a special prize for finishing the set!...

    Same here - first thing I do with a used instrument is clean up the fretboard, polish the frets, give the body a rub down. Makes it feel more my own somehow.

    Thank you! I just listened with headphones and you're right - surprisingly decent sounding.

    First video ever so please be gentle! Recorded on phone so sound quality pretty garbage. My own arrangement, I did record a version that was the full length of the song but as it's just alternating A...

    There's a Kimo Hussey video out there where he's talking to a luthier (Jay Lichty?) about the 19" super tenor they're playing. They acknowledge that it's near enough the size of a smallish baritone....

    Thanks for this, Baz. Looks a decent bet for a beginner!

    A minor gripe I've got is the assertion that "all" Cordoba ukes have those crappy tuners. The 30 series very definitely do not and I sold...

    Man, I was hoping to pop over to the Uke Room and try this one out! Not with a view to buying, just because it looks so nice. Glad it's gone to a good home!

    Don't forget that plastic is made from crude oil - the production of oil and plastic is one of the most polluting processes there is. Landfill is a small problem in comparison.

    So I could worry about the handful of plastic waste my old strings will produce. In reality I worry about all the ukes I've owned that were imported from the far east or the states. Many of these...

    Good spot Jim - the SUS specs are the correct ones. I'll let Matt know to correct the listing!

    Hey Sam,

    This one is flat, no radius! Neck profile fairly rounded and deep, not flat and slim. I.e. more Pono than Kiwaya.

    Cheers,
