    I assume that some lucky soul(s) at Martin get to take the original Konter uke out of its glass case and play it occasionally. I wonder how it sounds, and how often they do that?

    On the video, I like how they showed the process of painting the new ukes black, a black grain filler I assume, which makes the grain pop and fills the pores. Then they buffed off the black prior to...

    Vaccine rollout seems to problematic here in Mass. My sister has been an ICU nurse at a major Boston hospital, working on COVID since last Spring. They never even got tested until recently, and...

    So true. I always find it interesting when some folks, who play longer scale linear ukes, sometimes even tuned down, find any reentrant uke to be plinky, toy-like or grating. Then there's the...

    For me, it was #1, had an extra/under-used tenor here, so I strung it baritone. It was a fun experiment, and it is getting played much more now.

    Anyone recognize this one? Looks cool for the price, but looks can be deceiving. Very few details, it is listed as Unbranded.

    There's probably not much you can do to improve the sound of a high quality uke like yours, short of string experiment, but some things I've heard of folks trying are:

    I had that same problem on a uke once. I loosened the strings, and checked the saddle. It seemed that the saddle slot was wider than the original saddle, not sure why, but think that the uke had...

    Maybe try the 3-pack of low G Fremonts from Lucy's Ukes on eBay, one wound, 1 Blackline, 1 clear, a bit of variety. I'm still working on the Soloist, but will be trying one of the other 2 soon.

    The logo looks ok to me. But man, those uber long Pegheds look hideous on there. At least they could have used the shorter version, like Magic Fluke does. The back facing geared tuners look even...

    Martin wreck

    So sad to see a vintage Martin in such bad shape. If this one lived its whole like in CA, it surely never met a humidifier. Looking at the back, I'm trying to figure out what happened there, looks...

    I'd consider the usual Grover 9w tuners on the C1K and T1K ukes as budget tuners, at about $15.00/set retail. The Graphtech Ratio geared tuners are closer to $30.00/set retail.

    They did make a C1 uke in mahogany, it was called the C1 Uke Special. There is one on eBay now, but all the examples I've seen there (about a dozen over the last year or 2) are being sold in Japan,...
