    Boy, they’re pretty similar. I think I’m going to go with the consensus, I like #1. @deadpool said it was mellower, the word that came to my mind was sweeter. However, if, in real life, you felt #2...

    I have had my beautiful Beansprout alto for about two months, and I probably put in an order for a baritone from Aaron a month ago almost, but it won’t be made for quite a while - we’re temporarily...

    A double bass is different from a uke, I guess, but I am lucky enough to own a beautiful double bass and the luthier who built it told me as I chose the maple for the neck, back and sides, precisely...

    Well, I'm not an expert or historian. I agree that if you're just going to play chords, linear tuning is maybe more logical, but the high G will have a slightly different sound. Now, if you're going...

    I haven't tried it, and I'm not planning to for a while, but I vaguely suspect that I might prefer my smaller high-G uke tuned low-G and my larger uke tuned high-G. I sort of wonder if it'll balance...

    I just put a Fremont Soloist G on my Ohana concert uke and it worked perfectly without needing to adjust the nut or saddle. It blends fine with my fluorocarbon strings - it's probably a little louder...

    This is great advice. I bought an Ohana CK-50MG from Mim and it's a great instrument. I've upgraded since, but the Ohana still sounds great and is fun to play. My daughter has a laminate Ohana...

    hygrometer and humidity

    I am primarily a double bassist and so I have a room in my house that I work to keep in the 40-60% range year round. My ukes live there too. I own a humidifier and a dehumidifier, plus a handheld...

    What's your answer to the question?

    I own an Ohana CK-50MG and a Beansprout. I'd replace the Beansprout, of course.

    That is not an accurate description of what’s going on here. Your post is hurtful rather than helpful and it doesn’t belong in a forum like this.

    Thanks, folks. I'll post a video when it's ready. I'm really excited to try it out. It's more uke than I deserve probably, but it will get a lot of playing time and a lot of love.
