    I agree, that's just a piece of paper confirming what they always did anyway—a basic in the ball park setup. A real setup would be different for each individual since we all have different tastes,...

    The Renaissance guitar had four courses—G D E A—and was tuned both linear and reentrant. The first published music for the Renaissance guitar dates from the early 1500s and was in TAB. Basically the...

    Nuttin' to undercut right now in Honolulu. And the malls and music stores are closed for the lockdown. Mail order is the only choice if you want to buy. Plus, the internet killed off most of our...

    I agree, the Rubner heads are very nice. They even do custom orders and you can pick knobs, plate style, roller color, bearings, etc. I got a set last year and am pleased. But if you're really a...

    He probably means the local Hawaii dealers are slow. Tourists are gone and music stores have been on lockdown for a long time so, if they ain't doing online sales, they have no need for stock.

    Well yeah, most retail and service businesses are locked down on Oahu (the other islands vary). But you can do what you want behind closed doors. So I'm sure builders build and internet sales are...

    Yeah, lockdown for all nonessential businesses. No malls, haircuts, bars or restaurants. You can go surfing...

    The 2032 driven pickups can be humbug if the installer put the battery cage in a difficult to reach place. I had one installed in a TT6 on the Spanish Foot and it's as easy to change as dropping a...

    I own many cameras and audio recorders that use the Li-ion rechargeables and life seems to average 4 to 5 years before they're useless. I've also had two fail and overheat and swell up, getting stuck...

    Or you could add an aftermarket arm rest to an existing instrument. Some are beautifully contoured hardwood you apply with 3m double stick tape. I trimmed a guitar armrest and it worked well.

    Under tension, the soundboard flexes into its optimal shape for sound reproduction. I've found most instruments sound best after being up to tension for a week or so. Even being at full tension for...

    I have many cedar topped ukuleles and guitars with zero bridge problems. My 1965 Ramirez is cedar and has never been repaired (save for replacement heads) and I use high tension strings on it.

    Mahalo! Wish we could do something like this again this semester. Alas, all my guitar and ukulele courses were cancelled due to low enrollment (COVID fear). Very sad. I could have offered them online...

    Here in Hawaii. it's not uncommon to tune baritones to G C E A, not just for more fingerboard space but also for the fuller sound (hence special lighter tenor sets for baritones). I do it and also...

    They probably use a fulfillment service since the owners are busy making a living as performers and teachers. Or, maybe, just on vacation. I avoid answering email when I need to practice or have a...

    I prefer fluorocarbon on my ukuleles but, for classical guitar, fluorocarbon leaves me cold: poor vibrato response, too high tension and too bright for the first two strings. Oddly I like a...

    Pretty sure the Cordoba mini string set will work fine at G to G. Tuned A to A, at least on a Mini, it's really high tension. A real finger burner. I've only used the D'Addario requinto strings and...

    If design and craftsmanship are equal, I'm a wee bit partial to the fat mid rich tone of mahogany over the somewhat brighter timbres common to koa. But, yeah, most mahogany is really plain albeit...
