    It's solid. I think the cost is so low (for a Martin) because it is made in Mexico. Their T1K is only $499 for a Koa tenor...also pretty inexpensive for solid Koa, but also made in Mexico. Viva...

    I can't find the topic where people were discussing getting better tone by moving the uke off of your body, as much as possible and it reminded me of the Tonegard for mandolins, where I found out...

    It doesn't look like Martin is putting holes, rips tears dings or any kind of wood trauma into their new Tenor Uke. They are simply applying a thin layer of stain, instead of multiple layers, and it...

    Yes, I think most of us agree. Unfortunately a used mahogany Martin tenor is usually $1000 or more, but I am sure the sound is much better. I am looking forward to reviews and previews.

    If the T1K hadn't just come to my doorstep a month ago, the mahogany T1 Streetmaster would have probably been my choice. As I am happy with the Koa Uke, I won't sweat it. Looking forward to a...

    That sounds pretty good Mirek, and is quite clever. Have you tried Clawjam fingerpicks, they are made for both up and downpicking. I would suggest one of the softer metals like copper or brass for...

    There's a French Bakery that serves Bechemel Croissants. Since I am not near them, I had to bring them to me. I made my own croissants, but you can buy some and try this recipe. It is delicious.

    My current rotation is a binary approach. I have one uke so it is either 1. in my hands or 0. not in my hands. I don't keep it it the case, and I always have it nearby.
