    Very nice, congratulations! I'm really excited to see other people enjoying their Timms ukes, especially after I got my own and now know how wonderful they feel and look and sound. I would imagine...

    I don't think these are that easy to find since they don't have a defined name. What you need to look for is just a big bodied concert scale uke. As suggested, Romero Creations have the ST concert...

    Thanks! I agree with the sound completely. Easily the darkest/warmest sounding soprano I have. Although, I need to point out that I put Worth Clears on it, not Browns. I don't even dare think how...

    I mentioned that I'm leaving strumming marks on the finish very easily but wiping it with just a microfiber cleaning cloth did hide the marks somewhat. You could try that on the marks from the...

    Hmm, interesting. There's no doubt that the uke market is hot right now, particularly for low and mid tier ukes, but lately I've seen plenty of high-end ukes listed on popular uke shops and not being...

    Nope, they do make regular sopranos. It's just that they always have those 20 frets and the neck is attached to the body on the 14th fret, even on a soprano. Makes the neck look longer than it is.

    To be honest, for the longest time I preferred the slotted bridge because I really like diminutive bridges on my soprano ukes but after experiencing strings slipping out of the slot I've definitely...

    It would be nice if you or someone else with a koa Timms could record a small sound sample. You can find one for my mahogany Timms in the NUD thread I posted a few weeks back.

    I would definitely agree with sending it back. I've dealt one or two flaws with mid or even high-end ukuleles that I was able to either fix myself or having a luthier fix them for me, but if you're...

    I love that Flight keep taking design cues from other brands while adding some of their own innovations. For example, that pin bridge is clearly a nod towards some guitar brands and Kanile'a as you...

    I prefer 12th on a soprano as well simply because of aesthetics. Then again, on certain ukes it's more of a luxury feature, like on the Kiwaya KTS-7, and suits them well. On larger ukes, I always...

    Depends on the instrument but the difference isn't massive usually. Generally clear nylon is ever so slightly brighter and has more projection, possibly more volume as well, but I've found that on...
