    Yes, laminate ukes can require humidification too. Sure the body is much less prone to cracks, but too dry can cause braces to loosen inside, and fret sprout on the edges of fingerboard. Once you...

    Kanilea Oha tenor

    These were new for 2019. Haven't heard much about them. All solid, koa top, mahogany B&S, same TRU bracing. Has anybody played one, and what did you think? Wondering how they sound compared to...

    Wow, surprised on those 2, I expected the exact opposite, as I always thought Kanilea tenors had 1.5" nut.

    Converting those to metric, I got:

    It's all personal. Just play the uke you have, are there times you feel cramped on certain chords or fingerings? Many folks are perfectly happy on the standard 35mm nut, and 27-29mm string spread ....

    I have some hand issues, and wide nuts and string spacing really help my playing. I can play standard 35mm nuts, but do way better on them if the string spacing is 30mm or better.
  12. K-Brand tenor Nut Width/String Spacing specs

    I've never played any of these ukes, but aspire to own one some day. Just wondering on the nut width and string spacing at the nut on these 3 models, as they come from the factory. I like wide...

    Just ask the seller to measure the nut width, and the string spread at the nut (from outer G to outer A strings). A $10.00 digital caliper from Amazon is a handy thing to have around

    Just for reference, here's a couple of pics. First is my Martin soprano. It has 35mm nut (1 3/8), but string spread of just under 31mm. Easy for me to finger what would otherwise be cramped...

    IMO, nut width, and even more importantly, string spread at the nut, affect room for fingering more than the small difference in fret spacing. I have a soprano with a 1 3/8" (35mm) nut, but an...

    Tracie, thanks for the comment. Interesting on the rosewood fretboard on this one, vs Pao Ferro on the newer ones. Also, as you said, this one has pretty MOP position dots on the fretboard, while...
