    So in theory the fremont should be a bit more potent on the C and E strings as they are slightly thicker. Fluorocarbon strings have very consistent density so thickness should be the only main factor...

    Last (about a year ago): HanoHano long neck soprano. Next: no plans at all as I already have more ukes than I ever wanted, but if a nice taropatch catches my eye I might cave in, or maybe a Kanile'a...

    Thanks for the review. After seeing and playing a few Kanile'as with slothead and stealth tuners I would not want to own a slothead with different design. This is definitely a worthy upgrade.

    I prefer Aquila strings but I think that set comes with wound low G. Wound strings generally sound very different than than plain ones and the Aquila ones don't last long anyway. The difference in...

    This looks almost like an "open pore" finish - quite attractive I must say. Does Kala provide details on the type of Mahogany they are using?

    If you wanted to go an octave higher than baritone, would that work on a sopranino?

    Is the "root" not the lowest note in a chord?...

    Is the "root" not the lowest note in a chord? This means that for linear tuning root is either on the G or C string. But with re-entrant this is not as straightforward.

    Gee so I was reading and wondering if there were new Collings ukes and then noticed this is a ZOMBIE.

    The original tuning of ukes was adf#b, and I think that going up to DGBE would sound much too plinky. Also at the time they used gut strings and am not sure if they were manufactured at a diameter...

    Good luck, I have been looking for one for at least a year now. Too bad they don't seem to make many of them and people who have one tend to keep them.

    I think that for this kind of figuring and colour Eastman uses "Chinese Mahogany" (toona sinensis). South American and African mahogany types don't look like that. Likely my solid mahogany Gretsch...

    I agree that having at least two ukes is a huge bonus if you can afford it and like to play different styles. At a minimum I like a linear tuned tenor for finger style and modern songs, and a...
