    My Famous is incredible. The light build is a plus, not a minus. (The 1920s mahogany Gibson I just bought is light as a feather and it's been around for nearly a century.) The materials and bracing...

    Marcy was one of the presenters at a uke festival in N.C. back in October and she played her Ohana. I have two Ohana mahogany sopranos. Really love the way they sound. Have fun!

    The ‘Martin Premium by Aquila’ strings are a nice compromise of the brightness of fluorocarbon with a richer tone. The Sugar strings sound great but initially are too squeaky. Aquila is testing new...

    I agree with a string change first. If that doesn’t work, then check into (and price) a repair. Nothing wrong with buying a new uke, but there’s no reason to ditch your first one if it’s still a good...

    John,

    I’m delighted these worked for you. The ears on my Flea and Firefly are bigger with the 6s, too, but the ease of use from the better are certainly worth the different look!
