    Looking for: Oasis OH-18 humidifier

    I'm looking for an Oasis OH-18 humidifier. Before buying a new one I thought I'd check to see if I could find a deal on one here that someone may not be using any longer. Thanks for looking!

    I always loved the look of Bushman ukes. I wasn't aware that they were made in the same factory as Mainlands but I think the Bushmans were much better looking than the Mainlands.

    Thank you! I had been playing D/G/D/A but D/G/Dsus4/A works well too. I played it both ways back to back trying to decide which sounds better. The Dsus4 adds kind of a wistful element which I like...

    I was wondering, do ukes have bad days? It seems that some days I can play a uke and it sounds great but other days the very same uke doesn't sound that hot. (I'm talking about sound quality given...

    I'm sorry for your circumstances but as an outsider looking in, I'd advise cutting your losses, letting go and moving on. The uke your Mom gave you no longer exists. It's gone and it will never come...
