    Ohana have been selling their aged finish series like the SK-38 for at least ten years now. Very popular and solid sellers too.

    Good quality friction pegs are light and easy to use. On the few ukuleles I've had with guitar-style tuners I have almost invariably ended up replacing them with friction pegs, out of preference. The...

    I suspect you'll find that the answer varies by ukulele. My Romero Creations XS Soprano benefits from being held away from the chest, whereas my Kiwaya concert sounds its best when held more closely...

    If you find a workable design then you might want to look at 3D printing. Different density and elasticity polymers available and it could be custom made to fit your instrument.

    Not entirely certain, but I've read that Kiwaya fit Fremont strings. I like to stay with the factory strings for a good while (unless I really don't get along with them!) and kept those on for most...

    I have a mahogany Kiwaya concert which I tuned to Bb when I changed the original strings. It now has a set of Living Water fluorocarbon concert strings and sounds absolutely beautiful in Bb. The...

    Quite a few show up on the dealer locator page of Ohana's website: https://ohana-music.com/pages/store-locator

    That vinyl printing looks fabulous! I'm very impressed with how that has come out.

    Hadn't planned to buy another instrument just yet, but Jimmy Egypt had a soprano Firefly banjolele at a good discount and I've had one of those on my list for a while. Since I had a spare set of Neck...

    I picked up several yesterday. If you go for the downloads then it's perhaps worth mentioning that they seem to be a fairly random mix of formats and at least one of them has a different type right...

    That's if you can get one. Sadly they're currently sold out and no more will be made for the foreseeable future: according to the website the pandemic means they can't arrange another production run...

    After reading the review I went to their website to look at the range: three ukes differing mostly in size! I rather admire the restraint (although not the tuners for the soprano and concert). A far...

    Beautiful! That's a lovely arrangement of the song, quite different from the simple version I know.

    The one thing I did notice compared with previous videos is that just moving the uke briefly in front of your mouth really reduced how well you could be heard when describing it. New mic, or on a...
