    My favorite horror movie is The Orphanage.

    A spanish movie, and a bit of a master piece imo.
    It is creepy scary in an underplayed down to earth way.

    Thanks for the idea, but I am hoping to find something that fits perfectly as is.
    Otherwise this will adapt a tenor case to fit it of course.

    I use nail scissors (or are they called shears? Not native english speaker here) rather than the clippers. I find them more precise and gentle to use.

    Which scale is your ukulele?
    Low G is a common choice on tenor ukulele, a bit rarer on concert ukes, and not very common on soprano ukuleles.
