    I own a soprano, 2 concerts, a tenor, and a guitalele. Swapping takes a minute or so to adjust but it's not a big deal.

    I'm interested to hear what strings you recommend for guitalele in general. I currently have Pepe Romero/La Bella strings on mine and they are fine except that they wound strings are ultra-squeaky...

    I agree with Pix.fairydust. It sounds like a cheap laminate soprano and it sounds like re-entrant tuning but I can't work out how it's tuned. They are not playing the song in the original key and I...

    My first wound string was an Aquila Nylgut and it didn't last long before it started fraying at the first fret. I have since used Fremont Soloists on that uke and never had a problem. I think it's a...

    As far as I know, anything above 40% is okay. You shouldn't even need the humidifier.

    Well mine cost AU$120 (about US$85) plus postage. It has a few cracks in it that don't affect playability, which the seller was upfront about. Anyway, it wasn't a huge expenditure, so I wasn't too...

    I admit that I have real trouble discerning sound quality from samples on Youtube. I'm a bit of a Bruce Wei agnostic myself, but I'd be interested to hear about whether you thought my Bruce Wei...

    I know setup is an issue. Could you get someone local to set up a uke for you if you bought it online? If so, I would check out Gumtree, Facebook Marketplace, and Cash Converters. I also found Music...

    Also had issues, but once I got through to them (it took a few tries) they rectified the issue. I have no problem buying from them again.
