    I’m not a fan of Snark Tuners but YMMV. I use ENO ET33 Chromatic Tuners which seem to work well, they’re comparatively cheap (prices vary widely between suppliers but can be as low as 7 USD posted...

    As far as I know Aquila do not sell a black string, they sell some darker ones (Lava) but not black. My suspicion is that the Uke was older stock and fitted with (once standard supply) generic black...

    Congratulations on winning the auction.

    I’ve happily used Martin M600’s on quite a few laminate Sopranos, IIRC I’ve only had one instrument that they were a poor match for. Whilst they are...

    Bold added for clarity.



    The OP didn’t mention Kamaka, KoAloha, and Kanile'a instruments, indeed he didn’t mention any brands at all but instead highlighted the variability of what one can get...

    From what I understand of it a Kala KA-15S is like a KA-S but without binding and with brass frets. The KA-S is a good player, well mine is. An acquaintance in the Uke Club fitted worth Brown’s to...

    Someone and quite a few someone’s will pay the 400 and be happy about it. I’m not going to comment on the price or value for money but, I’m not in the group of people that could justify that level of...

    I don’t think anyone need worry about this topic further, we have been very clearly told by someone who has ‘a working knowledge of Physics’ that ToneRite doesn’t work. How foolish of others here to...

    I’m under the impression that these days it is possible to measure the sound and frequency response coming out of a Uke, but perhaps I’ve not fully understood some of Choirguys reviews.

    Maybe I’ve missed something here but you don’t seem to have defined the degree of protection that you’re looking for and the fragility of the instrument to be protected isn’t mentioned either. The...

    IIRC SM’s pretty much exclusively a high g player and her books reflect that. Unless I’m mistaken she’s playing a high g Uke in the video above and the piece is taken from her new book.
