    Thanks so much, sequoia.

    That has to be just about the most easily understood, best produced and best presented instructional YouTube video I've ever seen!

    Just superb!

    Hi guys

    I'm considering replacing the Grover tuners on my tenor with some Gotoh UK700s.

    The plate holes look to be in pretty much identical positions to the Grovers.

    I feel proud and incredibly privileged to own and adore a Pete Howlett soprano, not in any small part because I know that dear Pete will unlikely make any more of the 'proper' size of ukulele!

    You're not missing out on anything, OP!

    I have an extremely 'traditional' take on this particular topic. Sure, tenor players will wax lyrically about the tone and whatnot of their bigger...

    Hi Mivo (and wayward!).

    I'm not much of 'NUD'er, if I'm honest! And I can't see myself uploading any sound files, even if I could record them at a decent quality!

    BUT, yes, I will endeavour to...

    I think most people think that you need to play with a low G if you;re playing jazz, to get the depth and body of a chord. Most people playing jazz uke probably do it on a tenor (I think most people...

    I have one arriving in two weeks. It is a soprano. I will play jazz on it (amongst other things). I am unable to express the level of my excitement!

    I've had several sets of re-entrant soprano Aquila Reds over the past couple of years and had no problem with any of them.

    They are without question my favourite string of all those I have ever...

    You might want to drop Toby a line, as I fear your timescale may be ambitious. I'm having a Jazz Box sop made later in the year, and my understanding is that waiting time can be anything well over 12...

    Thanks again, Phil.

    I have seen another couple of preamps that look good too. I might go for one that is designed to be floor-standing, as it were - including ones with a stomp peddle.

    Thanks for the replies so far.

    Hippie Guy - I know it seems a bit precious/ridiculous, but I just don't want any 'active' electronics in the uke. Don't ask me to rationalise that (since I seem to...
