    I am confused now, as well. :p I used...

    The headphone out from the Eleuke is stereo. The line in (3.5mm) on my MacBook is mono. Your suggested connection did not work for me, either.

    The Flea

    Since you'll be purchasing without playing it first, get a Flea. Get the basic flea w/no upgrades. You'll spend around $200.

    Well, I play it using this chord sequence.

    Am - D - F - G (repeats)

    then

    C - Am - F - C

    You can fiddle around with the melody while running thru the sequences.

    With any brand of strings, the tension on the concert will be higher than on the soprano, if they're both tuned to the same pitch.
