    I don't think it that the slow down has just happened, so not specific to August being a slow month to buy.
    I think it's been happening for a while, and maybe just more obvious to me right now with...

    I'm quite surprised, too. I don't play tenors, or I probably would have not been able to resist.

    UU Marketplace

    Kind of related to the thread on tariffs, I've noticed that the resale market seems soft these days. There are some fantastic ukuleles in the marketplace that aren't moving like they would have in...

    I guess I was lucky. I bought a Crossrock case from Amazon, and it didn't have any odor, and the latches were fine.
    Maybe I got one from an earlier batch that didn't have the problems?

    I've heard guitar players mention using Heritage or Clarion for insurance for their guitars. I'm not familiar with either, but thought I'd mention them in case you might want to investigate those...

    If you're in the US, maybe try contacting Mim or Uke Republic and ask them for suggestions. They'd be able to help you find something that would be a fit for your ukulele 's dimensions, and come as...

    When I first started watching YouTubes of ukulele players, it seemed like everyone was playing plugged in, and using effects.
    I was kind of under the impression that it was a necessity to really be...

    That's what I've done if it was an expensive ukulele, and I had concerns about the weather, (too hot or too cold.) Yes, it's more expensive, but well worth it to me for an expensive ukulele in...

    How long is the strap?
    I'm small and play concert sized ukes, and have the problem of some straps being too large for me.

    I put the outside packaging of the string in the case with the date of the string change on them, so I can remember both what strings are on there and when I changed the strings.

    I haven't noticed this either. I tend to use Living Water strings, but have used Martins without noticing them sounding like nylons after a while.

    As the buyer of the Collings, I can agree that it went very smoothly, and the ukulele seems to have cured my UAS as well. :-)
    (At least for now, LOL.)

    That's going to be a beautiful ukulele.
    Looking forward to updates on the build, and most especially, song samples once you have it. It should be a very special ukulele.

    Well, they don't say how good the band is, though. LOL.
    Or if they had any other musical training that might help them transition to another instrument.

    If you could learn a few guitar chords and...

    Enjoy your Moon Bird! IMO, they're well made, great intonation, and lots of fun. I was surprised at how loud it was.

    I don't know if mine had a set up or not, (I bought it from someone on the...

    I have no idea really, but based on the strings, I'd say that #1 is the Farallon and # 2 is the Clara.
    I like the sound of #2 better, whichever one it is.

    Either way, I enjoyed your...

    Thanks for clarifying when the geared tuners became standard. Seems like they're using Gotoh Planetary geared tuners now? Is that correct?

    But, either way, I agree that they are wonderful...

    I don't know what they were using in 2005, but current listings for the Kamaka Ohta San say that they have Gotoh Planetary geared tuners with ivoroid buttons.

    The only thing that the ukuleles share are tuners. (And me.)
    They each have their own case, strap, and humidifier.

    I've bought used, and haven't regretted any of the purchases. All were from UU.

    Hardly ever played could be for a number of reasons. Maybe they were trying a different size ukulele, and it wasn't...

    I admit to gasping when I saw the prices, but then again, those Moore Bettah auctions have gone higher than that.

    Beautiful sound. And, though it's not my style, the bling took a lot of work, and...
  25. Has UU influenced any of your ukulele buying?

    I was thinking that if I had never checked out UU, my ukulele buying might have been different.

    I didn't know anything about ukuleles, and had only one friend, (RIP), who was into ukuleles, and...
