    Hmm, I just realized I had remembered the scale of the D'Addario clip-on meter wrong: there is another set of bars on the display, on the way to the next semitone, a total of 12. The biggest...

    Good question. I think the biggest deviation is about a quartertone, and the G is less than that. I'll measure them more precisely in a while.

    No, I meant that the D in the a-D-F#-B would be the same as the D in the standard baritone set of DGBE. The a would be 7 semitones higher than the D, not 5 steps lower.

    My idea included utilizing...

    D6 re-entrant baritone

    For me it would make sense to have a baritone tuned a-D-F#-B (high A, if you will). It would give the best of both worlds: lowest possible note that the baritones are designed for and re-entrantness....

    Low G I didn't even think about (as I'm not keen on installing one), but thanks. It came with a high G.
  6. 1st and 4th strings compensated similarly on saddle

    Sorry for the flooding, but I posted a topic on the buying tips section, and it also includes some tech questions. It's about intonation and identical 1st and 4th string compensation (and finding...
  7. 1st and 4th strings compensated similarly on saddle

    I have a Flight Juliana concert, which has a compensated (bone) saddle. The compensations of the 1st and the 4th string seem identical. Does this suppose that the string set should have a similar...

    The Martin G is not thinner but thicker, of course. Sorry.

    Hello, Mimmo,

    I can't find the gauges on that page, nor anywhere else - have they been taken away?

    I'm especially interested in Super Nylgut high-G concerts, because I have an uke that has a...

    Yeah; this one has a massive koa top and laminate koa sides and back, if I've understood correctly. Maybe it's something in between in that regard too.

    When I get a all-solid, I'll get the...

    Sorry Jarmo, You mean we need 2 saddles because they lower because of the dryness or because they lose their attachment easier?

    And yeah, the winter is dry, but that's not the case yet. I've...

    Thanks, it's reassuring to hear that others make mistakes too and that the damage is not always severe. That the saddle doesn't always fly out the window with a chunk of the top and half an eyeball...

    I think I try to contact Flight too if they have some special insight on this. If I'm under the right impression that they're nice people and passionate about what they do.

    Thanks for the replies guys!

    I very much think that the string is now correctly tuned; it's the same note that f.ex. the A-string 3th fret plays. And the rest are correct too - I played with my...

    Aloha from (another) uker from Finland!

    Hi, all!

    I have been playing for about four months now. I'd say the uke is my first instrument. I did buy a plastic trombone (with a silver mouthpiece) for my 30th birthday, but I didn't realize...

    Sorry for flooding, but I wasn't sure if this was a more proper a forum for asking about making a stupid tuning mistake, so I put it in the beginners' forum. Maybe reply there:

    C tuned an octave high by accident!

    Believe it or not, but I managed to tune my C-string an octave too high! And the string didn't snap. My main question is: have I done some damage to the uke? I haven't seen nor heard anything...
