    I don't like wound low G strings because they sound so different from the plain strings, and often don't last long. I use a red low G with nylguts and don't find it overly boomy on the tenor, though...

    Yes my most recent uke purchase was a long neck soprano. That gets you close to the sweet authentic sound of soprano with the playing comfort of concert.

    They are common and Joe Souza can be seen playing a Kanile'a of that kind sometimes. Taimane is also well known performer with 5 string uke.

    The notion of root as lowest note is nice in theory and teaching. In practice, chords are not played in isolation and the role of lowest note can be taken over by bass or whoever or whatever carries...

    I have played several old Martin ukes that were close to 100 years old and as a group were the best sounding ukes I have played. However, I would not consider buying one as the research to identify a...

    Keep in mind that playing a uke made of poor quality solid wood may be a much worse experience than one made of high quality laminate. Solid wood is not necessarily an indicator that the uke will...

    So in theory the fremont should be a bit more potent on the C and E strings as they are slightly thicker. Fluorocarbon strings have very consistent density so thickness should be the only main factor...

    Last (about a year ago): HanoHano long neck soprano. Next: no plans at all as I already have more ukes than I ever wanted, but if a nice taropatch catches my eye I might cave in, or maybe a Kanile'a...

    Thanks for the review. After seeing and playing a few Kanile'as with slothead and stealth tuners I would not want to own a slothead with different design. This is definitely a worthy upgrade.

    This looks almost like an "open pore" finish - quite attractive I must say. Does Kala provide details on the type of Mahogany they are using?

    Is the "root" not the lowest note in a chord? This means that for linear tuning root is either on the G or C string. But with re-entrant this is not as straightforward.

    Good luck, I have been looking for one for at least a year now. Too bad they don't seem to make many of them and people who have one tend to keep them.
