    Nice little test, thanks for that.

    I do wonder what kind of results you'd get with different notes/strings. I find that at least on my Kamaka the C string produces much more overtones making...

    I don't mind the logo and I love slotted headstock. Can't remember if they've had those before on their ukes. I'll agree on the pegheds, they look awful on the slotted headstock and would suit a...

    This week I did something a bit different in terms of my DIY journey. A few months ago, I bought a fairly cheap concert uke, a Kai KCI-5000 to be exact. I bought it from Thomann so it basically came...

    Indeed. The actual issue may not be the accuracy of the tuner but rather how it displays the frequency. As mentioned, a strobe tuner (Peterson in my case) may not be that much better at recognizing...

    I'm not surprised at all by this. I've noticed the same just by using my Snark on ukes that produce more prominent overtones. Sometimes the reading can vary greatly with subsequent plucks of the same...

    I like the look of those Graphtech ratio tuners because they have a nice matte finish that makes them look more vintage to me than tuners with metal posts. But obviously that's personal preference....

    Buying a new one.

    Just kidding. :D I semi-regularly simply wipe my ukes with a microfibre cloth after playing to keep them more or less clean. Usually satin finishes don't even require anything...

    I can attest to that. The job Juha has done for a few of my ukes that needed repairing and the one I commissioned from him is excellent. And he's a great person to work with as well. I love chatting...

    Yup, that's why I commissioned the uke in this thread. I love the idea of a uke made out of local woods while being ecological as well.

    This has become the primary reason why I prefer friction and planetary geared tuners, aside from the aesthetics. Tuning is just so easy with them, not so with regular geared tuners. I have zero...

    Nice, thanks for the heads-up. I like Snark overall and it's usually accurate enough for most needs but I do have a Peterson strobe clip-on tuner as well. It's been invaluable for testing intonation...
