  2. Brueko guitar, mahogany baritone, Boosey & Hawkes tenor, tiny iUke (UK only)

    Hello folks,

    We're about to do a lot of building work on our house, and rather than put everything in storage I thought I'd see if anyone was interested in any of these:

    Hello dr_mitch! I am just down the road from you in Derbyshire.

    I am putting a couple of ukes up on the for sale section soon if you want a really, really good soprano and can collect locally.

    That's a nice collection, some of which is worth good money.

    I would say that generally, it isn't a good time to sell high end secondhand instruments. If you can afford to hang on for a while, I...

    Out of those three, I would say the Pono. Although it looks ridiculous with that long neck. All out of proportion.

    The KoAloha is probably what everyone will say you should buy, but TBH I don't...

    Fabulous already, and it's only Tuesday!

    Here's another snuck off recording before work.

    Inspired as I was by Bobjking and Billy Bragg, I wanted to add a tribute. This is a Bill Bailey song...

    OK, another one stolen before work.

    This is traditional, probably, but whenever I think of it I think of Fivepenny Piece.

    Hello folks. This is a brilliant thread, but as is usually the case it's the end of the week and I'm exceptionally time-poor. So without further ado, here's an unpracticed song before work.

    In my experience, this is usually down to a poor tolerance to the string itself.

    What has worked for me in the past is untying the string then retying it the other way round (so the nut end is now...

    I suspect this is down to lots of individual issues. Technique may be an issue; if you were traditionally a guitarist not all of your skills are portable. Could be a (slightly!) dead fret. Could be...

    One of my favourite ukes is made of lacewood and holly.

    I like the way it plays and because of my friendship with its builder. I believe it was the last one he ever made before his retirement.

    It strikes me that if you have a uke tied to the outside of a bag, the strings will catch on stuff anyway. Ukes are not practical like that.

    I have an Argapa traveller uke. That's quite good fun...

    The idea that something can sound "15% brighter" is marketing nonsense. 15% brighter than what?

    I have an Argapa backpacker uke. It's great fun, if a little limited.

    If I wanted a proper uke,...

    I'm with Kohanmike on this one.

    $900 is in no way budget. For that much money, I expect them to be special.

    This is a mass-produced Chinese uke. There's nothing wrong with that at all, but...
