  2. Review: D'Angelico Premiere Bayside CS Concert Ukulele

    I almost didn't make this week's review...it was a busy week at school (parent/teacher conferences).

    This one was on sale from Musician's Friend on a Stupid Deal of the Day some time ago. I had...

    A three years ago, I bought 70 Outdoor Ukuleles for the school I was working at, and bought KIDS strings for them. Each had strap buttons, and I wanted straps as an option for my students.

    I like that answer, Bill. I was going to say: if you're buying the ukulele because of its ruggedness and plan to take it where it will be exposed to the elements, then a pickup such as a MiSi will...

    No...it doesn't! Well, it I really leaned on it, it might happen. But not in normal use.

    I learned about this from Daniel's "Fun Ukulele Projects" YouTube channel, and he ordered one of the...

    As Barry says, you can only review what you have in front of you. Today I swapped the strings for Martin M600s and that helps the instrument a bit more (in my opinion) but the tie bar bridge is a...

    Review: Vorson Plastic Concert Ukulele

    I have to admit: I was impressed by this one. I'd choose it over a Kala Waterman.

    There is one pretty negative review, in French, on Amazon, but there are three five star reviews on Thomann for the product.

    It is certainly an interesting combination...an archtop style ukulele...
  10. Review: Kmise MI3229 Double Neck Tenor Ukulele

    This is a long one...lots to look at on this one. I don't know if it is made by the same manufacturer as Ortega (there's a lot that is the same)...and I don't know which factories in China make the...

    Thanks for your thoughts. I have bought a bunch of KoAlohas used, and this Opio Concert plus the Opio Long Neck Soprano were almost new at the time...and both came to me with Low G. It could be that...
  12. Review: KoAloha KCO-10 Opio Concert Ukulele

    I have a week where I had a gap and needed to review another of my "old" ukuleles, and decided to review my KoAloha Opio Concert.

    I try to avoid using "the best" in my reviews and my posts. I...

    Yes...taropatch—in my studies—is generally reentrant tuning.
  14. Review: Mahalo MK1tbs Kahiko Series Soprano Ukulele

    This would be my first ukulele, officially, although I only bought it to determine the feasibility of adding ukulele to my middle school choir program in 2015.

    Ukulele was a hot topic at the...

    I've watched many of Martin's own historical and promotional content as it comes to ukulele, and it certainly seems that Japan is a primary target of their new instruments. I'd be willing to bet...

    I'm not really an "alternative tuning" person.

    However, I did want to clarify...I own 4 instruments with tenor neck eight strings, from 4 different manufacturers. The tuning is different on all...

    Review: Aklot Eight String Tenor Ukulele

    This review has been out a week, but I had waited to post my review of the Ohana BKT-70G until hearing back from Ohana (there was an issue to clear up), so I postponed posting this review. I will be...

    Play it a lot. The squeak does wear off. Aquila has always suggested some lotion on the fingertips before playing.

    I find it curious that they are introducing a concert HPL model after cancelling the soprano line last year.

    As for all the suggestions of different prints, I'd guess that decisions are made based...

    I'd check in with Ken Middleton (Living Water Strings) and see what he would suggest. Certainly reentrant dGBE tuning would be feasible--I wonder about the low D. I'm sure it has been done and will...
  23. Review: Ohana BKT-70G Short Scale Baritone Ukulele

    I like this idea a lot: baritone body with tenor neck, for those that want baritone resonance with tenor feel. I find GCEA tuning on a baritone a bit tight for my personal tastes.

    This one would...

    KoAloha does have the better than the weather warranty, even on the KoAlohas. If it is something as easily fixable as a faulty friction peg, they might very well just send you one in the mail.
