    That’s a great video. Very uncomplicated, and the average tinkerer can pull this off. I learned this method about 5 years ago. At that time I was teaching lap dulcimer, and some of the 20 or so...

    Kurt, after a brief study, I have no doubt the Vita would have been a great choice. Since I’ve already ordered the Kala Flame, it’s now just a uke to be considered for another time. Very impressed...

    Loud ukulele

    I am of the belief that I would like to own a concert uke that is loud, lots of volume. No pickup. All for under $150 to my door.

    I would appreciate all suggestions.

    Hey, that’s a beauty. I’d be proud to play it in public any time, any place. I can see myself wearing a matching field hand’s straw hat, with a harp in my mouth, playing “Bile Them Cabbage Down.”

    The clear plastic top seems really stout. I don’t think breaking/cracking would be a problem, unless it’s violent if some sort.

    A protective film sounds like a great idea.
