    So true. I don't even have a TV because just the cost of cable puts me at $600+ annually. Over 5 years that's $3000. Instead I subscribe to Netflix and Amazon prime. Minus the cash I usually spend on...

    There is a huge difference and it is definitely justified. Most of us here who play high-end ukes will never become superstars, professionals, or go beyond just playing for friends or small...

    They were on eugeneukulele.com, but for some reason the link doesn't seem to be working. Ask the man himself.

    There's really no difference in string tension between a slot or paddle headstock. You can build either one to have the exact same string length and break angle as the other.

    Shouldn't worry too much. Just make sure you acclimate it slowly to the humidity. My Pono was exposed to the humidity, salt and sweat on a pretty regular basis when I lived in Miami and when I spent...

    I'd opt for a Blackbird Carbon Fiber uke. Not only would it be way more durable, you wouldn't have to worry about humidity, water, dirt, dust... really anything. You could play it in the water, bury...

    Even if it did make a very very slight difference it would only have an effect while playing open strings so there wouldn't be that much of a point to it.

    No difference in sound, but there is a difference in the ease of access to your tuners. With a slot head you don't have to reach from the top and the bottom so it's a more comfortable angle for your...

    Due to an injury, Django only had use of two of his fingers on his left hand. Segovia had really short stubby hands. His fingers were often described as sausages. Both of them are considered to be...

    So true. Learning to play one note at a time really puts things in perspective. Especially the most difficult pieces.

    I often slept with my guitar. It was more of a fall asleep while practicing...

    Practice makes perfect. 1% Talent, the other 99% is practice.

    I figure that most people (given they are physically capable of something) can attain some pretty high levels of proficiency at...

    I'd go for a Pono over a Kala, but if you want a Tenor, go for the Tenor... or wait until you can pick up a Pono Tenor. After playing a Pono for awhile, I'm a big fan.

    The real question is what the uke was in when it was checked. I think what often happens when an instrument gets destroyed in baggage is someone plans on carrying their instrument on the plane, but...

    I sold off my first uke. I just didn't see the point in keeping a perfectly good instrument in the closet with no chance of ever being played. I know how you feel about playing a uke that just...

    Asian airlines are usually very accommodating. You should be fine checking in your uke given you pack it properly. The mistake a lot of people make is that they check their instrument but don't have...

    I used to use them in Miami. Especially during the summers. Then again we're talking 95% humidity outside and about 65-70% indoors with the AC on. In order to get the humidity to 50% you'd have to...

    I'd say it's even a bit more than that. When you finally are able to obtain that high-end one uke to rule them all instrument it's more of a long term commitment than dinner or a jam. It's more like,...

    I think the having her buy it for you is key.

    My wife just gets upset if I buy a cheap instrument. She knows that I'll just end up spending more overall upgrading and upgrading until I finally...

    Of course the Taylor 314 is hardly humble or entry level. It's a damn good guitar period. I recently picked up a Taylor and played quite a few different instruments in the process, and I didn't...

    Tone and resonance are more important than volume, and you don't get as much of either without a lot of volume. A soft uke is like a car with too small an engine. Even when you floor it, you stil...

    I have a cedar top + koa back and side uke and I really love the combo. cedar has that nice warm sound while putting out a lot of volume, but still maintaining a lot of clarity. Koa may be the...

    To me volume is extremely important. Having a loud uke allows you to have a larger range. You can always play softer, but if you have uke that doesn't go up to 11, you'll always be stuck at 10....
