    There is a difference between knowing a song and memorizing a song. I've never bothered to sit and practice a song over and over in an effort to memorize it but I know every song that I play. Knowing...

    I'm with snowdenn, it's not a look that I would want. I know that an off-center button would bother me. If you ever wanted to sell it I'd bet that it would put a lot of people off.

    I'm song sheet dependant. I don't think I could play any song by memory but in all the years I've played uke, I've never tried to memorize a song which might seem kind of weird. I also like variety...

    @Rllink - I'm a lot like you in that respect, I give Kalas a good look but then end up buying an Ohana. Three of my five ukes are Ohanas and I'd happily buy another if I were ever in the market...

    Despite where the poll results would lead me I ended up going with a chrome button. I held up both a black button and a chrome button to the end of the uke and the chrome button ended up looking...

    ^^^
    Very good advice noted above. I just finished installing strap buttons on four of my ukes. The only thing I would add is to use a drill bit that is the same size as the shaft of the screw...

    Thanks! I found it kind of weird that they would say that the strap was designed to last 10 years. Do people go into a purchase thinking that's a great thing expecting that a strap would fail in a...

    I'm about to dive into the world of strap buttons myself. For me, the concern wasn't compromising the instrument, it's because I will be doing the job myself! I plan on doing it on 4 ukes. I'll pay a...
  11. New strap day - Leathergraft mandolin/ukulele strap.

    I recently purhased my first ever ukulele strap and I'm very pleased with it. The strap is 1/2" wide and the shoulder pad measures 1-1/2" wide so it's perfect since I wanted a narrow strap. I've seen...

    I didn't think of that! That's why I couldn't find any examples of it being done that way anywhere.

    Looks nice, a great match!

    Right now my plans are to match the strap button with the binding/purfling and tuner buttons on 2 ukes, the hardware on the 3rd and the 4th one is still up in the air.
  14. Using a mandolin strap for a ukulele - headstock attachment.

    With this type of mandolin strap (see below) can the leather loop just be put over the strings between the upper and lower pairs of tuners on the headstock and then be snugged up and used that way? I...

    I agree but in my mind's eye, I'm genuinely torn about what might look better. I can visualize both working so I was curious about what others might think. When I get the pairs of black and chrome...

    I'm rather suprised at the results thus far, respondants choosing black over silver by a margin of 2-1/2 times (20-8). I thought it would be a lot closer. I still haven't made up my mind but I just...

    It wasn't sexy and it didn't sing like the angels but I regret selling my starter uke, a Lanikai LU-21C. When I got it, the action was high enough to hang laundry from. I took it to a local music...

    I don't really like the look of wood strap buttons so that option was left off intentionally. Brass would be close to gold so I probably wouldn't go for that. Antique brass might work but it would...
