    If you get outdoor ukes I advise getting all the same color.
    I had some colored Ukes and the kids fight over the colors they want.

    Reno 2018

    The Reno Festival was great. Nice venue, great vendors and SUPER performers and teachers. The Peppermill was so much better than the dirty smoke filled Nugget. A big kudos to Doug and his family.

    A long while back there was a thread about this tuning. I tried it and really like it while playing in a group, it added a nice low end. As a solo instrument it was to muddy to my ear.
