    I was going to say with these kinds of instruments that if you have to ask you can't afford it. :biglaugh:

    My practice for the Flukutronic channel is to use a Zoom Q8 camera for video and (most) audio capture, but I post-process the audio in a DAW and then sync it back with the video in a video editor. I...

    No, no, I got it. I was just responding to why it might seem a little slow in selling. Absolutely worth more than the asking price. :shaka:

    Very cool design and sounds really good. The up octave tuning kinda ruins it for me as a true "bass" but getting that tuning in a tenor scale is a neat trick in its own right

    Living Water concert are quite nice although the 2nd and 3rd strings are actually the same gauge as the tenor set, so overall may or may not work for this experiment depending on which strings are...

    Have you tried just using a concert set? As long as they are long enough, the thinner gauges will give a lower tension.

    Living Water has a custom low tension set. Although I have the standard set...

    Really is a great opportunity. It's just that "only" and "$2000" aren't allowed in the same sentence for the vast majority of players. Still, as many people bid five times that at an MB auction,...

    The only similar story I have is with the Kala SLNG. I had bought one as a 'tide me over' uke while waiting on another I wanted more, probably the KPK, then sold it shortly thereafter. Then I got a...

    If your measurement is at the 12th fret, it seems to be about 4mm, which does seem rather high. On acoustic ukes I like to aim for 2.5mm, which would agree with your take the bridge down 1/8", but...

    I prefer the smooth feel to the flats by far over the rounds and I'm looking for a less bright, "jazzier" tone than the rounds. I should have another follow up video this week with a sound sample and...

    A few questions:
    How far off are we talking and how are you measuring it?
    What is the 12th fret action? (Intonation generally gets worse with higher action.)
    What are the strings and how are they...

    Concur on the first - "low G" means GCEA or linear C. That's why I said "reentrant G". There's always going to be an element of confusion around this topic, but there's absolutely no reason to misuse...

    Reentrant G tuning for tenor is absolutely possible with several commercial sets available (Living Water and Fremont, probably others) but whether they fit the nut slots on the Fluke I'm not sure...

    The round wounds are nylon core, the flats are steel. AFAIK, you have to order those through Magic Fluke as well. I think they are not on the web site because they don't sell as many fretless basses...

    I was thinking the longer scale might be too high tension at DGBE but I guess that's not an issue if you have it a step higher.

    I do have a super tenor at reentrant cFAD tuning just for the...

    You'd have to check with Ken Middleton to be sure. I'm sure he could make you a custom set if the standard set is too short. But at that scale length, you'd be back in DGBE territory. You might even...

    Yeah, I think that is deceptive at best. But it's also pretty obvious. Anybody buying "solid bamboo" should know what they're getting. I'm not saying it can't make a well playing and sounding uke,...

    Right, I got you. I was just presenting another option, but I probably just confused the issue since my option was for A tuning on 19" scale and OP is talking 17" tenor. Thanks for pointing that out

    If the bari strings fit the tenor nut, then yes, that should work. Tension on the tenor should be virtually the same. Think about putting a capo at the second fret on your baritone. Now you're at...
