    Thanks everybody-- you've all been very helpful. I'll give it a try without a preamp-- It's just me busking, and most of the time with no amplification (as none is allowed where I live).

    I'm getting a uke with a passive pickup, and I've found plenty of information on what I need to make it work plugged in-- clearly I'll need an amplifier and a preamp. My question is, how does it all...

    Thanks for all the input-- now aside from a resonator or a Fluke I'm also considering spruce or cedar tops and banjoleles. Must meditate on this.

    I do busk in and around Aachen and Cologne, Germany. No amplification is allowed, and when you do find the perfect quiet place with a captive audience, you've only got 30 minutes playing time there...

    Good loud acoustic busking ukulele

    Hello. I'm looking for a good acoustic busking ukulele in the 250-500 euro price range-- acoustic only as no amplification is allowed where I busk, so it has to be loud (as well as sweet)-- and as it...

    How is that tenor Bambookulele? I've got a concert Bambookulele I use for busking-- loud but not loud enough.

    I'm also looking for a loud tenor in that price range, but maybe up to 250 euros which has me looking at one or two solid mahogany tenors. I've had my eye on the Kala STG as well, and I gather it's...

    Thanks! It's nice to know there's an option I can buy in the neighborhood instead of buying through the mail.

    In the end I might just do that-- something through SUS, but it would be nice to play it a bit first, which I can only do with the Ortega.
  14. Ortega RU 10 soprano / RU 11 concert solid mahogany

    I'm in Germany where Ohanas are hard to come by and Ortegas are widespread. Anybody have any experience with the RU 10 or RU 11? They're at a shop here for 169/ 179 euros with gigbag. Decent ukuleles?

    I don't get it. I change strings every few months AND play. It's like walking and chewing bubble gum at the same time.

    I'm not just experimenting though. I like the variety of sounds, as do many who have ten different ukuleles for different sounds. And... "nonsense"? If you ask most people, playing the ukulele all...

    How so? Is this senior member ukulele wisdom? If you often change your strings you aren't a serious enough player?

    Funny you mention different tuning. My Bruko 6, having been freed from the rigors of busking in gCEA, is now tuned to D tuning and I love it! Another new instrument!

    That crossed my mind, and I wonder if I'm not a bit comical strumming my Bruko as hard as I can and passers-by can hear it a little too well.
