    I never worried or even thought about the humidity, but if you live near the ocean the salt air will do a number on the tuners.

    There is a nobility to playing a ukulele with friction tuners, just like tuning by ear with a tuning fork. It makes people feel closer to the culture. Some manufacturers want to pass that experience...

    I haven't bought a uke for three years and don't expect to in 2021. That is, unless my good one gets broken.

    Christmas ukulele?

    Who is not planning on getting a new ukulele for Christmas, or during the holidays for that matter? I'm not going to.

    Me neither, so there's two of us. And I'm not getting myself one for Christmas. I think this should be a whole new thread. I'll start it.

    No, that is not what happened. I thought it looked like something fun to learn to play, so I did a little research and bought one. Then a year later I knew a little more about it and bought a better...

    I don't look at ukuleles that are for sale every evening. I don't look at them at all. Seriously, not being judgemental, but why? I mean, are you just sitting around all the time looking for...

    I don't know what time of the day is most condusive, but it seems to me that owning ten cheap ukuleles is most attractive to the impulse buyer.

    Of the three that I have only one would even be worth selling, and that's the one I play and would want to keep. The other two aren't worth a hundred bucks put together.

    Playing the guitar the fretboard markers are pretty significant, on the ukulele not so much, although they do help orient myself to some extent, but I don't refer to them much on the uke. I would not...

    Whichever you feel like. I mean, it doesn't really make any difference which one you use and I don't think you both have to play the same instrument.
