    I think we must have been back-and-forthing on Instagram about one of Aaron’s recent wood selection posts. Your alto looks amazing, I love the headplate in particular but the details are all awesome....

    I only own two, a Beansprout Alto (Maple/Spruce) and an Ohana CK-50MG (C for concert). I’m on the waiting list for a Beansprout baritone (woods to be chosen, although Aaron has set aside some nice...

    Elisabeth Pfeiffer just published a new book containing fingerstyle transcriptions of the music of Adrien Le Roy. I haven't had much time with it yet, but it promises to be every bit as good as her...

    I've also broken them before, which is irritating. More importantly (to me), I've never been happy with their performance. I can't tell if it's accuracy or precision that's lacking but my ear tells...

    I put 1 but depending on how you look at it, the answer may be 0. In reality, I'm on a build list and planning to defer the build to December of 2021 and will take delivery either late that month or...

    I have an alto too. I love it. Mine is quite different from Cluze’s and Ludwig’s although theirs are really stunning instruments and I was sorely tempted to ask Aaron for one like theirs. I’m also on...

    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.

    There are a handful of Beansprout ukes with Fir tops too. Aaron seems to like it. I wouldn't mind a fir-topped baritone myself.

    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.
