    I have a Homestead Tenor and it has a nice voice, albeit very quiet. The action is way too low for me—2.25mm at the 12th fret—and I'm planning to cut a new nut. Maybe bone and a 2.75 to 3.00mm setup...

    The Kremona Mari is pretty close to the $500 mark and is a sweet sounding 'ukulele. I was lucky and snagged one for $300 (Amazon Warehouse deal). I wrote a review of the Mari with plenty of images...

    Any baritone gig bag should fit a 19" super tenor and have a wee bit of extra room for a clip-on tuner.

    Walk, Don't Run - Doghair 'Ukulele

    Mo' Doghair with the Johnny Smith tune, "Walk, Don't Run." I tried to inject a wee bit of Southern Spanish flavor into this surf era classic.

    Might peek at the Kremona Coco. It's made in sporano, concert and tenor sizes, sports a solid cedar top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides. I have a Coco tenor and it has a lovely full voice...

    The wee bit of wayward intonation could be due to your strings or frets. It's hard to say without playing your instrument. However, to my ear, detuning or chorusing is more apparent—easier to...

    Yes, 1402 is an E chord but the two middle strings (42) produce an E unison and, thus, are more subject to a chorusing detuning effect than 4442 or 4447.

    Depending on the instrument, I use both fluorocarbon and nylon strings (and some composites as well). Yes, nylon generally takes longer to stretch out and stabilize but, once fully stretched, I've...

    Nope, not even remotely UAS. Everybody is entitled to at least a dozen 'ukulele. Each instrument has it's own sound and feel so feel free to own as many as will fit in your humble abode.

    I've owned a few instruments with the jack on the side and it was literally a pain in my leg. Centered in the end block is much more comfortable (besides being stronger).
