    I had the fantastic opportunity to play some of these when I met Pops last year as well -- they're pretty awesome ukes! I love how they felt to hold and the punchiness of the spruce was crazy. It's...

    A lot of times when I see the neck on an old uke looks a bit offset, it turns out to be more of an illusion caused by the curl in the top. My '28 Harmony Johnny Marvin was sat on at some point over...

    Thank you! A couple of months have passed and it's still in the original configuration, and I'm definitely happy with where it is. It's probably my favorite uke to pick off the wall and strum...

    I will second the TK-39 as a superb but relatively inexpensive uke option. It definitely has all of the "bark" you'd expect from a mahogany uke and the build seems pretty thin and light compared to...

    I played a bunch while in Hawaii, including a few at the KoAloha factory, and they're really nice! I think part of the Pineapple Sunday thing though is that they're built by Pops, so it's hard for me...

    I popped into the Ukulele Lab while I was in Waikiki earlier this month, met Issac and saw the shop. It is probably the smallest uke shop I found during my visit (the other Waikiki visits being...

    Thank you! Your posts definitely came up when I was trying to find out any info about the six string version, so that's fun we've got a couple of them accounted for. I was thinking about switching to...

    Just to add on to the above, I ended up following up with Pops about this one since it is so particular with the six strings, and he was able to share a little bit of information about it. Shortly...

    NUD: Pineapple Sunday six string

    Well here is a NUD thread I never expected to get to post, but I never imagined I'd get to tell this kind of story. I'm not religious at all but I've always kept an eye on how the universe tends to...

    I just got back from two weeks on Oahu! As many have said, it's a great island if you want to shop and see the factories. I had something close to a religious experience when I went to the Kamaka and...

    I'm pretty sure that's mahogany as others have suggested, Koa tends to be more golden than brown. Older ukes can take on that darker look but Koa tends to stay fairly golden and light.

    I really didn't like the stock Kamaka strings so I cycled through a couple of different sets before settling on Worth Brown Low G's. It really shines with the low G, but I kind of still want to try...

    Nice find! I had a PKT-1E for about a year, I thought it was well-built overall (no glue spots in the body, nice bracing etc). My main complaint with it was that it seemed a bit overbuilt and quieter...

    This is an interesting thread....I, too, once had a heavier-than-expected Pono tenor. I had (I think it was) the PKT-1E, solid Koa with a passive pickup, and no matter which strings I put on it I was...

    For me it's a feel thing. I picked up my own HF-3 less than a month ago and I've settled on a low g set of worth brown strings after trying some worth clears and the stock Kamaka strings. I'm the...

    If you enjoyed your experience, go for it! I'm firmly in the "dislike" camp as well but that's mainly a feel and sustain thing...I took the Kamaka strings off my tenor and replaced them with clear...

    Good ways to break out of a rut?

    I was playing around this weekend and have felt kind of stuck in the same mode for a while...I find myself noodling around on the same old things on both uke and guitar. On Saturday however, I...
