    We can do many things, but saving you, or anyone or ourselves for that matter! from UAS is not happening. We can, however, throw you into the fire! So jump in! It burns either way, so you might as...

    I have had 6 ukes (7 by the weekend probably) pass through my hands since March. So it will be 7 ukes in 5 months. The longest I kept one was about a month; most were 2 weeks or less. But the one...

    Thanks, PereBourik, your impressions are helpful. I'd been interested in this uke for a while, and though I've decided on another one, it's great to see these available and hear what people think....

    This. And I whipe the strings, well the whole uke, down with a dry, soft polishing cloth after playing. I've never had occasion to clean strings specifically. I figure if they seem to need cleaning,...

    Some call naming chords, notes, and intervals "musical spelling." It's a way for the mind, and other musicians, to understand and name what is heard, and to pass it on to others. It's the same thing...

    I've heard the same from Magic Fluke, that all laminate tops sound the same. But that wasn't my experience at all. YMMV. :)

    In my experience the walnut is a quieter top. I had a tenor Fluke and a concert Flea, both walnut and both much quieter than the birch top. I had trouble choosing strings, too, for that reason.

    I...

    Thanks for posting this, I hadn't heard it before. It's a beautiful piece, and that's a great uke for it.

    Still looking for the spruce/mahogany Tiny Tenor, the import rather than the Pepe custom. If you have one, raise your hand - I missed one on FMM by minutes!

    Yes, I'd say it would be very bright with the spruce/rosewood combo. If that's what you're looking for, go for it. If you want a more mellow sound, this probably isn't the uke for that.

    I'm with you, Phil. On the other hand, it would just be a demo for me, as I know I wouldn't buy a Clara. The regular Blackbird tenor? Maybe, but I just missed a good deal on one, so bye bye...

    This thread has been interesting, thanks for the replies. I do whipe down the uke after playing. I don't mind now but when I started it was like taking the uke out of a case - seemed like a pain and...

    I agree. Hearing that very slight difference gets easier if you know the instrument very, very well and, presumably, have played it a while. What I mean is, the more time you spend with a uke, the...

    Congrats Jim!

    Just curious, are you stuck on the Aquilas, reds or others, or open to other strings? I've used a wound classical guitar string too, but had to get the 'xpensive one because I hate...

    Thanks for sharing your experience, Tony. Schatten seems very overlooked around here, and I'm not sure why. I haven't used their uke pickups myself, but used a harp pickup with builtin preamp, and a...

    Narrow fret wire

    I've always loved the fret wires on Flukes and Fleas, but never played another uke where they were that narrow, or low either. I've seen fret wires on ukes called "medium," but have no idea what that...

    Yes, between these 2 I'd go Mainland. And the neck was the main reason I did choose that one. Glad to help!
