    My first ukulele was a KA-SLNG and I really could have stopped buying any more ukuleles right then and there. It could have used some prettier tuning knobs, but other than that, it was great. The...

    Yeah, those Romeros have always held my attention. Tried an XS at U-Space a few years ago, it was pretty cool. Hope you enjoy it. (... doh, thought I shook off my UAS ... slowly returning!)

    And here I thought the three tenors were Plácido Domingo, José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti ... :rolleyes:

    Yeah, if I could go back in time, I wouldn't have ordered my Opio with UPTs. They work superbly but for my tastes, they look a little chunky on my soprano.

    Oh, I'm sure they do. It's just surprising to see a description that hasn't been spun by the marketing department. "futuristic, jet-black, space-age plastic! Textured for superior grip!"

    Very honest description from the seller saying they look cheap. Manages expectations and minimizes returns I suppose.

    Always amazed by the lack of love for slotted bridges. Okay, so I figured out the first time that I always need a bigger knot for the A string, but I guess my ukes have a better bridge design than...

    You're getting a hollow body, so you can enjoy noodling around on it to start before getting an amp. Maybe try the guitar amp at low volume and see how fast it distorts, but I'm guessing it might not...

    Hmm, this is an interesting thread. I don't get too wrapped up in the marketplace, except to check out photos on the odd one that piques my interest.

    A few (non-price) areas we might have a bit of...

    Heck, I even play a lot of the songs I know from soprano on my baritone! Completely different sound, but a lot of the time it still sounds good. But then I don't sing along, so I don't have to worry...

    There's definitely a difference between soprano and concert tension. Especially since some string sets are labelled for both sizes.

    It's really both. The shorter scale will reduce the tension for a given frequency, but there are strings that would improve on it. As others have said, try adjusting to it first. I tried Worth Clear...

    Yeah, I was tempted to resell, but figured I probably wouldn't make any more money and it would be more effort than returning. It was an Outdoor soprano, so having to pay shipping at both ends to and...

    Yeah, I got caught out on a headstock that had too small of a cutout for hand clearance. Just annoyed me. I took a huge hit on the return too - around 50% with shipping costs and restocking fee, but...

    I also have to give my brain time to open up to the new ukulele as well. Even when I got my Opio, I wasn't sure I liked it because the sound I imagined it to be wasn't the same as the sound it was...

    Never tried radius so don't know what I'm missing. That's fine by me.

    Zero fret - don't care for the look, but some uke designs benefit from them.

    Still, I'm happy to see Ken...
