    I don't know that this is fair. I'm not saying you didn't care for the Opio Pineapple Sunday, you obviously didn't, but I have a concert scale Opio Pineapple Sunday that I am quite fond of.

    How do I pick which one to play? I play the one I feel like playing at the time. I know it sounds a bit trite, but it is true. They have a slightly different sound and feel, and it depends on my...

    I've been watching it every week as well. Pretty fascinating.

    On the one hand, I feel bad for Mim, since she gets slammed every week. On the other hand, I am happy that she is getting a lot of...

    Well I just couldn't help myself and had to see what it was like with a high-G. I put on a set of Uke Logic soft tension strings last night. Once they had (mostly) settled in, I spent some time...

    Huh. That's an interesting point. But there are people who are plenty happy with their iPhones. And I am not sure that a ukulele falls behind any technology curve and needs to be updated quite the...

    I played violin (poorly) from 4th grade through my sophomore year of high school, then switched to viola. After that it was choir, mostly, until the uke made its way into my life.

    Setup can involve several things, but the most important here are:

    1. Adjustments to the slots in the nut and the height of saddle. You want the strings to be high enough above the frets that it...

    I'm going to guess that this is string related, but mostly because every KoAloha I have played was like a sound cannon. They are typically crazy loud.

    From the construction, it really looks like a short scale mandolin of some kind, rather than a ukulele.

    I am afraid that I am not extremely well versed on the mandolin world, or on the larger...
