    If it comes to the notion of taking over this forum from its current owner/admin, I would suggest looking into converting it from vBulletin to phpBB. While vBulletin does have a lot more features, it...

    Two thoughts:

    1. Don't even hint that they should start doing ads on this forum. It's a very nice, clean forum. One of the last places on the internet that's not cluttered with ads! If it can be...

    I feel like I'm slacking here. But, really busy with work lately... and currently have a Cat 1 hurricane about 50 miles from my house just off shore. (meh, 40 mph winds and some rain)

    Anyhow, I...

    My Waterman Soprano is/was awful. But, I never experienced it new. It was clearly a store demo model or something. I'm pretty sure they made some improvements to the design when they made the Concert...

    Yep, all my fault! But, it seems it worked out well for you. :shaka:

    I've got about a $30 "Bugs Gear" peanut style uke that I keep in my car. I'm a driving instructor, so I'm in the car a lot. If I find myself waiting somewhere for a few minutes, or have a student...

    I would be that someone. I sort of felt guilty pointing it out. Funny how we all notice different things. Some people see scratches and finish imperfections. I see crooked screws with mangled heads....

    Yes, Worth Brown Low G. Exactly what I asked her to NOT do because I knew they were too tight for my liking. Because I'd just tried them on my other Concert. This is ME, I'm talking about. Clearly,...

    Burly! Mine is not unattractive, but that one is a knock-out.

    I think the difference lies in "knowing a song" vs. "knowing how to play a song".

    I "know how to play" a lot of songs. That is, I know what they should sound like, and I know how to play the...

    Mine showed up yesterday. Won't have a lot of time to mess with it seriously until next weekend.

    I was disappointed the Mim strung it with the Worth Low G string set, which is not what I wanted....

    I've been thinking about trying to learn the fretboard again lately. I haven't done it, of course. But, I've been thinking about it.

    New Uke coming this week... hopefully, that will inspire me to...
  13. Almost NUD: Ohana CK-42 Sinker Redwood Concert

    Pulled the trigger on this a couple days ago. Mim just finished the setup on it and UPS says it will be here Saturday evening!

    I recently played with Worth Brown strings and found I didn't like...

    Yeah, I've tried that, too. It got me close. Playing Low G changes things a bit. And some string makers use the same set for Soprano and Concert... I play Concert, so that doesn't always help!

    Any non-wound Low G string does not qualify as "Low Tension", which is the topic of this thread.

    I'm generally using C strings for the Low G, and find that acceptable. It's really finding a...

    Yeah, these were the strings that came on my Concert, so they're probably either the Aquila 4U set or the 103U Concert set. I didn't buy the strings, so I don't know for sure exactly what they are,...

    Experimenting with lighter gauge strings

    Okay, so I'm one of those people who really likes Aquila strings. I like the way they sound. (don't ask me to describe it, it's just pleasing) I like the way they feel. I like the fact that once...

    Mim's first email response to me after I'd mentioned the Mainland as a possible benchmark was "Ohana has a version of the Mainland". I thought she was just comparing the two, but... maybe the CK-50...

    I've never had any doubts that a cheap uke can be playable. My only question has ever been "how much better is a pricier uke?" and "would I be able to leverage the difference in sound with my skill...

    I've been saying this for years! A good musician can make any instrument sound good (or at least better than it is). Whereas, you could hand me the finest $7,000 custom ukulele and I would still...

    I've learned to (sort of) play Bianco Fiore, which dates back to the 1600's. Does that count?

    Yeah, I've poked around in the Luthier area of this forum enough to get the hint that there's a lot more involved than just the type of wood used.

    I'm sure I wouldn't notice much difference...

    My first "real" Ukulele

    All the recent threads here about "do you actually PLAY your expensive ukes?" and "is an expensive uke really worth it?" and so on got me to thinking. And shopping.

    Yeah, I'm hip. Those are the positions that I use. Easy to make the change from one to the other. Just hard for me to make that shape without thinking about it. Getting better, though.
