    From Kill Bill, Volume 2. I don't plug in too often, but decided to try it, to add some reverb and vibrato, for an old-timey feel.

    Dave, why wont UPTs work on a 10.5mm vintage Martin headstock? The HMS website says they work on 10-12mm headstocks. I've had on 2 vintage Martin sops, and they were fine.

    3 tenor tunings compared

    As others have mentioned, sometimes ukes sound better in different tunings. I've found that tenors often sound better tuned down a 1/2 step to B, or a full step down to Bb. My personal favorite on...

    I was watching this one on eBay. The opening bid of $399.00, including shipping, stood for the entire auction. Then, at the very end, it sold for $459.00. Sounds like a sweet deal!
