    If you are buying from a store that doesn't provide setup, Kala uke (the newer ones) comes with a checklist certificate that guarantees basic playability.

    I've never heard of "neck heavy". I've heard of head heavy, so maybe neck heavy is like head heavy since the center of gravity of the neck is beyond the neck/body joint.

    I have a feeling that the waterman is sold mostly to first-time-uke-playing kids; kind of like a toy. Not many kids will upgrade and not many will continue to play their waterman for too long.

    And you can market it as an advertisement space to companies. "I'm playing this uke with this strap all over town, want your name here?" :)

    Same here. Thanks to the ukulele, I'm rediscovering the guitar.

    To find the answer, just use your uke and pluck the C string (tuned of course). Since the notes are all at least a semi-tone apart, the note to be easily identifiable.
  13. Absolute pitch identification (a little fun experiment)

    Here's a little experiment; maybe you'll find it interesting too.

    I think we all know the middle C note. The C on the uke string #3. The C that we've all heard millions of times in all kinds of...

    In this case, I think "the more, the merrier" truly applies.

    String life too short? Try a light touch.

    Here's something I noticed that may help you.

    I used to have to replace strings just a little on a month of playing because dents would form on the underside of strings at the fret locations.

    I had a Kala KA-S, which is similar to your KA-15s. For < $200, you can get a KA-SSLNG or KA-SSTU (I've owned both). Either one will give you noticeably better sound.

    Try not using your tuner for a week.

    For many months, I didn't have a clip-on tuner (I had given mine away with some ukes to my parents). During those months, I mostly tuned by ear because my tuners weren't convenient and I'm lazy.

    What kind of tool is this?

    It looks like a wrench, but I don't think I've ever used such a tool on my ukes or guitars. Maybe a tool to tighten something that loosens often (so it's made into a keychain)?
