    Is that the solid spruce top version? I had the basic version for a couple of years and quite liked it, the long neck Sopranos are compact (so easy to move about) and the concert scale gives more...

    In general I tend to agree with you and add my own experiences below.

    I have had several Makala Dolphins, their standard Soprano and their Concert models, all of them have worked fine and the...

    Like many others I’ve struggled with barre chords - to a small extent I sometimes still do - and, in the past, I’ve used the four finger Bb chord too. Over the last few years there have been some...

    I wouldn’t go much on what is said on other sites. IMHO nothing much compares to UU.

    Strings can be anchored to the body of a Uke in a few different ways, some are notionally easier than others to...

    Welcome to UU. The Uke is a great instrument and a part of the Guitar ‘family’, it can be used for playing classical music or strummed in the style George Formby. I think that the Little Gem is a...

    I’ve found this an informative and interesting thread, and one that confirms some of what I already do. Some but not all of what I do, but then as I only use Soprano and Concert Ukes (so short scale)...

    That’s a neat idea and a good piece of kit.

    Looking on the bright side isn’t it good that you have the disposable income available? At some point you might even sell a sizeable proportion of your Ukes and recover some of your investment.
