    That does look like a mighty nice uke for the money - makes much more sense than the Lava.

    And I quite like your minor rant about "carbon fiber" ukes. I've mostly given up trying to explain to...

    My all carbon fiber Klos Tenor should be here soon. Promised for mid June, but not surprisingly it (like everything else in the world just now) seems to be running late.

    Remember to leave behind a note to your spouse to explain what each instrument is actually worth, NOT what you told them you paid for it.

    If you haven't already, do check out the documentary "The Wrecking Crew" all about the group of LA musicians back in the 60s for which Kaye was one of the main bass players. Fantastic story.

    I've been doing this for years. My preferred strap is a 1.5" wide cotton, as it gives a bit of stretch, and also has enough friction to keep the uke from sliding around. But as these are sometimes...

    I alternate between noticing something that I might want to try and incorporate into my own playing........and being depressed and demoralized knowing that I will never be anywhere near that good.

    I have a set of the Uke Logic low tension low G strings that I thought I'd try on my Farallon (which for some reason is much harder to play than my other ukes). Has anyone compared the Uke Logic...

  12. New Klos all carbon Uke - get the sound port?

    So I just received the final check out from Kickstarter on the Klos 100% carbon uke I ordered. One of the options available is the addition of a sound port for an additional $90 (marked down from a...

    A "no leak" polymer inside an expanding shell or mesh tube. I would guess if you were to open one up it's just standard "water beads" or some other form of superabsorbent polymer (which is why it...

    I've purchased WAY too much from them over the years. All of it great - all of it rather expensive. So far I've resisted a StewMax membership on the theory that it would just encourage my habit if...

    Well.....I would say, except that I'm pretty sure it will reflect poorly on the state of my mental health. Really cool piece of wood though.
