    I think the concept of it being acceptable to have nicks/dings from manufacture and other quirks (like inaccurate string spacing) is an interesting one when it comes to individually handcrafted...

    Yup, completely agree with Jim Hanks suggestion.

    Use the 4th-1st (DGBE) from electric guitar if you want to tune up to GCEA on the electric uke (low-G).
    Use the 5th-2nd (ADGB) from electric...

    Contrary to that logic, I find that sometimes tenors benefit from slightly less tension.
    Hear me out.

    When the tension is too much, the strings are taut and don't vibrate for as long. Also, it...

    I'm very happy for you! Nothing quite as exciting as your desired instrument being back in stock and on order.

    As soon as it arrives, I'd recommend changing the strings to something decent and...

    That sounds to me like a recipe of getting the worst of both worlds.

    You will have a tenor G that's uncomfortably high tension, and a baritone D that is too floppy.

    How about having a tenor or...

    I'm trying to get my head around what you're asking.

    Are you asking for string recommendations for tuning a TENOR ukulele to DGBE like a baritone?

    In that case, don't use a GCEA set at all....

    On nylon stringed instruments like Ukulele I do NOT like having a radius fretboard.

    I think of ukulele to be "like a classical guitar" in the sense that they both use the same kind of strings and...

    You kinda convinced me to try it the high octave string first way. I've messaged The Ukulele Site to revert back to the conventional tuning :D
  11. Poll: 5 String Ukuleles - Low-G + High-G or High-G + Low-G?

    I've been interested in 5 string tenors for a while... I really like the idea of having both a high-G and low-G.

    I play low-G most of the time, and play a number of solo instrumentals that rely on...

    Also, you may need to adjust the mic input volume from your computer.
    You can do that from within the Windows sound settings or audio software.

    Generally speaking, you should be able to turn up...

    I would recommend a program called Audacity. Free, but excellent for music recording once you get used to it.

    Within Audacity, change your input to Mono rather than Stereo. It defaults to Stereo...

    From what you have described, the neck seems about right as long as it feels comfortable to play.

    The other major factor at play is string action on the individual strings, adjustable at the...

    Unless the mic is very close to the fan (or if your fan is abnormally loud), it shouldnt really pick it up.

    You may want to check whether it's actually the sound of your fan.. or some electronic...

    What kind of background noise? Do you mean ambient sounds, like cars driving past and people talking near you?

    Condenser mics with a cardioid pick up pattern generally only really pick up sound...

    If you're trying to tune to DGBE on a tenor ukulele scale using electric guitar strings, I'd get a 9 set's ADGB (5-4-3-2) strings and tune it to DGBE.
    That's generally worked for me in the past....

    I think if you try to dampen the sound of the ukulele in any way, you risk dampening the sound of the whole ukulele.
    I do know that for guitars, expert luthiers sometimes "tune" the soundboard and...

    It seems others have covered the main points.
    I have been using inexpensive setups to make Youtube videos for over a decade now.

    I'll recommend two pieces of equipment for consideration.

    In my personal experience, I give ukuleles a similar amount of relief (or maybe a tiny bit less) as guitar.

    The somewhat "universal" standard is hold a string down (usually 1st string) at the...

    Which guitalele is it? Yamaha?
    If it's the Yamaha one, there won't be a truss rod.

    If it came with a factory setup, typically the action and the saddle are high enough not to buzz.

    I do note...

    Searching UK-300T on ebay shows that you can get the entire pickup system (including battery case) for about $10-15.
    If you can't find the part by itself, at least the whole pickup system is cheap...

    I think generally speaking, Cedar tends to be a mellower, warmer sounding tonewood compared to others like Spruce which really 'pop' and 'bang'.
    With Cedar, think classical guitar tone.

    Now that the "Shima" uke comes in an all-solid tenor, I wonder whether Jake would actually perform on it exclusively?

    I absolutely respect your decision.

    For me, it's not so much that cheap = bad.

    It's more about knowing exactly what you are buying and asking yourself whether you can live with it + able to fix...
