    The KoAloha friction tuners work well. I have them on two ukes. I prefer them to the 14:1 ratio geared tuners but less than the 4:1 Gotoh planetary. If I look at a KoAloha, I have no hesitation.

    It may be that they are clearing out the original models. Does anyone know if they have updated the frets that were showing excessive wear yet?

    Most of what you term "hype" is from members either owning or actually playing an aNueNue Moon Bird. Barry at Got a Ukulele gave the tenor his highest ever rating. I assume you have experience...

    Well, you have to assess your personal financial situation. But you will likely never have another chance at a MB uke. And it should hold its value so that if you decide to sell it in a few years, it...

    I prefer chord melodies as well. I went in this direction very early (starting with the Ukulele Way course by James Hill) as I decided that I really did not want to sing for an hour or so every day...

    I tried a wound on my Blackbird Clara (unknown brand) and it was boomy and dominant. I changed to a fluorocarbon (sorry, brand unknown... cut from a roll at my uke shop) and issue disappeared.

    The KoAloha has a brighter sound on the high end, the aNueNue is a little more balanced in tones and mellower. The aNueNue has a slightly radiused...

    I would replace my Blackbird Clara (includes radiused fretboard). It sounds wonderful as reentrant or linear tuning and I do not pay great attention to its feeding and care.

    Rumor spreader (no personal experience)...

    But consider wearing eye protection. I have read (likely on this forum) of pins shooting across the room or causing minor injury in a few cases.

    I use 1" on my soprano and concerts. They work fine. This size is aesthetically pleasing to me and wider would seem to be a bit much for these two smaller sizes.

    I am a fan of radiused fretboards specifically because I am more successful at barre chords. I have a few of each and when using a flat one, it is always more difficult to not get a "thuddy" note. As...
