    I play slack-key baritone, and the custom set I finally settled on is:

    D 4th - Fremont Soloist (0.030" smooth-wound) or Thomastik Infeld CF30 (0.030" flat-wound)
    G 3rd - Thomastik Infeld CF27...

    I have used this setup successfully on both 19" and 20.5" baris. So maybe the CF35 and CF30 will perform better on your 21.88" bari, but I'd say try both and see what you like. I know I just prefer...

    I appreciate the responses, but it's not that I can't transpose to another key, use another tuning, use movable shapes, or use a capo - it's mostly about time management (or laziness if you prefer...

    Pono's have the narrowest necks of any production uke brand I've tried. Their bari's are 1 3/8", while say Kala's are 1 1/2". You probably won't find a production bari with a neck as narrow as a...

    As always, it's best to try them out if you can.

    Ponos tend to have narrower necks, while Kalas are wider. I've had a couple Kala baritones over the years and I prefer their feel over the Ponos...

    The humidity is too low nine months out of the year in our house to leave nice instruments out. We also have a very climby 18-mo old. So my poor ukes spent a lot of time upstairs "safe" in their...

    If you're interested in exploring a variety of open tunings on the uke, I recommend Open Tunings for Ukulele by Ondrej Sarek. Each tunin is presented with some basic chords and/or song tab.
