    Yes, I'd have a local luthier fix it up for you, they are nice ukes, and would probably be worth about $250-350 if all fixed up. Reattaching the bridge and fixing the crack shouldn't cost more than...

    Wow, can't believe I'm doing such an un-PC song. This was apparently a big hit back in 1948 for Arthur Godfrey, a popular radio and early-TV personality, who also played the ukulele. I can just...

    Soprano strings: Worth vs Martin

    I had a set of Martin M600 on a mahogany soprano, and wanted to try Worth Browns, so I strung her up. The Worth BM sound is a bit mellower to me, and seems to have slightly less volume. But,...

    I have both low and high G tenors. Some songs/chords just sound better in low G, and vice versa. My playing feels, and probably sounds, more guitar-like in low G. High G is a happier/more chimey...

    Nice uke! I had one of these pre-1980 Brukos a while back, as well as modern Brukos, and mine also sounded a bit sweeter, and less brash, than the new ones. I also loved the maple neck; good luck...

    Understood. I expect the China-made KSU-1 soprano will be much the same quality as the China-made KCU-1 concert I had, that is, of less quality than the Japan-made Kiwaya and Famous models. Maybe I...
