    I’ve had mine get lopped off and when I edit it and paste the content (copied), it went through fine. It only stung the first few dozen times before I learned my lesson to copy before submitting. ;-)

    Just wanted to clarify that FMIC handles the marketing and distribution of Gretsch instruments and that Fred Gretsch III is still the owner.

    The 2003 thing goes back to when FMIC took over the...

    If it were me, I’d get a silver series soprano and call it good. I’m not a fan of satin finishes in general (most of them make too much noise when recording for my taste) and KoAloha makes one of my...

    Most beautiful things have a bit of sadness to them! ;-)

    My favorite part of the song’s construction is that if you remove the melancholy lyrics, bump up the tempo, and give it some bounce, it...

    My wife’s in a high-risk category so we’re avoiding just about everything until a vaccine comes out. I love the ukulele and ukulele players, but not as much as I love my best friend. ;-)

    When it comes to tenors, I prefer Kamaka. Sopranos and concerts are more of a debate, though. KoAloha’s bracing, tone, and volume seem particularly well-fitted to the soprano and concert sizes.

    I never understood this recommendation either. When I lived in HI, it made sense for ME to go try ukes, but having lived in, I don’t know, the middle of Indiana and not exactly the ukulele capital of...

    I love that song! It took me ages to get it memorized but now it's my go-to for fun playing.

    Agreed. If it doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work. Send it back, get a refund (or store credit), and try again with a different company/model.

    I disagree. I played guitar for about twenty years and, because I ignored proper technique for fretting in favor of doing what felt more comfortable and what I thought looked cool, I ended up...

    Autumn Leaves

    I’m pretty big into jazz and saw a guy once say that everything you need to know about jazz is in Autumn Leaves.

    I can’t speak to that, though. While my process is deciding standard notation,...

    I’ve got an Islander that has one - the ASARM-T. From what I gather, these were Islander’s attempt at high end and they’ve got a lot of cool features but I guess not many people liked/bought them (or...

    While all of these are going to differ from each other, I don’t think any of them are bad choices and, honestly, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that you order from a reputable ukulele...

    I’m going to buy it to see what I can learn but mostly for the production value and entertainment of watching/listening to Jake. I feel like I’ve watched his PBS documentary a hundred times so far so...

    I know that I’m the guitar world fresh strings mean the world because they’re (almost always) metal and constantly sounding more and more dead. But with the ukulele, it’s more like “if they sound...

    If you’re looking for after-sale support, Islander might not be the best option. I’ve emailed them with questions about mine and received zero response.

    If memory serves, the Islander has a wider...

    It’s not inconsequential at all! I’ve been playing ukulele for about five years now and STILL get tripped up around the 10th fret because of uke dots vs guitar dots!

    The only one I really don’t like is baritone. All of the others have different uses and places in my heart. I love the soprano for its traditional size and (usual) lack of frets. Andrew Kitakis told...

    Flame looks like stripes. Quilted wood looks kind of like waves. Master grade and 5A just means that it’s highly figured (and usually expensive).

    All actual koa is grown in the state of HI, not...
