    I am very excited for this Ohio winter; we had a whole house humidifier installed with our AC unit last spring. We do have to watch relative humidity so condensation doesn’t form on windows, so we...

    Workmanship should not be a problem in a Kamaka. The two I have seen in person (including my own, which is 4 years old) were immaculate. I hope this isn’t the start of a trend.

    And yeah, those...

    All I know is what the park’s spokesperson stated in the article. Buildings near Halema’uma’u may fall in, or they may not. There are cracks, so it’s unlikely those buildings will be used.

    The lava flow hasn't really changed course in the last couple of weeks, so the national news likewise hasn't been covering it. Locals, of course, need different information than I do way out here in...

    You can also look for deals under "shopworn" there, usually newer stuff that was on display and got dinged.

    I suppose people take their chances when the rent/land in those areas are cheaper and Hawaii is so expensive, but I agree with you, they shouldn't be building in zone 1. Reminds me of an article I...

    I haven't bought from any of the 4 sellers I listed, sorry you had a bad experience with one. I know it's hard to trust in an online seller, but sometimes it seems there are only a couple of uke...

    I don’t think the fancier models would sound very different; mostly you’re getting nicer looking wood and the binding/rosette. Unless you get a cedar or spruce model, I suppose.

    You should be fine. The Fremont Soloist is .03 of an inch in diameter, or .762 mm, and it's what I use on my Kelii concert with a slot bridge; it came with Worth Browns and I did no modification to...

    Try a Fremont Soloist. What uke are you using for this? I haven't put any low G strings on my sopranos, but I can't think of a non-wound low G that is thinner than a wound. Please, someone correct me...

    I’ve read that is a possibility, but the lava isn’t fountaining from the fissures as high as it has when a new one is formed. There was a flow in 1955 that scientists say this seems more similar to,...

    Oh no! Those Cordobas are nice, I've played a few in stores, I was really impressed. I am sure you can replace yours with an equally nice-sounding one.
  19. Living Waters for A and E strings,...

    Living Waters for A and E strings, Thomastik-Infeld CF27 for C and Fremont Soloist for G. Some use the T-I CF30 for low G. I am not at all a fan of unwound low G strings, too thunky.

    LOL! Fountain pens are so nice.



    Some things were made better, I think. Not machines, necessarily, but there was more of a sense that things need to be durable. Clothes, for example. But I...

    I have Living Waters on my concert koa uke, and Aquila Lavas on my koa soprano. Strings are way too personal to make blanket statements about "best for ____", in my opinion.

    I would like to get a vintage soprano, not so much because I think they sound "better" than a more modern uke, but because it will have that old-timey soprano sound. It would be different from my...

    Not hard for me! I play my fastest on a soprano. But I don't have giant man hands, I have short little lady fingers. :D
