    I've done it before, but only when I had a string set that was still in the "settling" period. They just weren't sounding good on that particular uke, so I swapped them out but kept them for later...

    Jerry, you've hit on my collector weaknesses ukes and fountain pens, but for me I have to justify to myself where the next acquisition fits in my everyday enjoyment. For fountain pens, I'm up to a...

    I'll second the endorsement for the C1K. I love mine. I'd say regardless whether or go for the tenor or a concert, buy from a dealer that shows you pictures of each individual uke. The wood grain...

    I figured I wasn't the only one to hold this opinion.



    Can't agree more, I enjoy BazMaz's Got a Ukulele so much, I jumped on his Patreon. I also frequent Alex's posts from the Southern Ukulele...

    Okay, now on to...

    I started with the stock Kamaka black nylon, so I have a good reference. A few I'm going to try are the Craig Chee GHS nylon high G and the AG x AQ high G set, now in concert. I may explore after...

    Congrats!!

    Thanks for your very emotive description of love at first play. It puts into words a similar feeling I had recently when I first held my HF-1L.

    From a fellow Kamaka player, enjoy!!!

    I picked concert, which is reflected by my inventory.

    But, recently my go-to ukulele is my HF-1L, so I think I'll agree with some other posters and say concert is my favorite scale length.

    A quick update ---- As if on cue, I was surfing through Instagram the other day, and Jake is now selling his ukulele strap (and I found a coupon code on his IG post). I jumped on that as soon as I...

    I have two answers for this:

    One: I absolutely love the sound and look of Koa. However, I'm probably more traditionalist in that if I'm getting a Koa uke I want a Hawaiian ukulele maker (or...

    All great tips. Thanks!

    With a little practice, I'm getting more comfortable at playing it and some fingerpicking without a strap. I also picked up a neck strap with a low-profile soundhole...

    Thanks man0a, Aaron's video was very helpful. However, he was still using a tenor uke so there's plenty of room between the forearm anchor and the fingers.

    On my long-neck soprano, if I place...

    I have both the D'Addario and the Kyser and enjoy both equally. Kohanmike is correct, you need to post the Kyser as you see to minimize interference with fretting fingers. On the D'Addario, I found...

    Strapless Fingerpickers, Help

    So, I recently purchased a 'unicorn' ukulele for me. It didn't come with any strap buttons and I can't bear to add any. I'm using this as an opportunity to improve my mechanics of playing without a...

    I think there are a number of great uke suggestions in the posts above. I also favor concert ukes, so I thought I'd offer a little experience on cases. I've traveled globally, always with my uke.

    Not a custom, but special --- It's my first "K-brand" uke!

    I just gave in to the urge and bought a Kamaka HF-1L Long Neck Standard. UPS says it should be here Tuesday.

    Not how I thought that was going to turn out. Thanks for that blind "taste" test. I made my pick!

    The neat thing is that if I pursue my choice it would be unique in my collection. I
