    It depends on what your definition of "budget" is, but my Ohana SK-38 is about as budget as you get for a Martin copy, super light build and packs a punch. I'm not sure about the Flights previously...

    Thanks for the feedback. I've wanted one of these for years (SK-30M) as I started out on a Kala longneck and saw it as an upgrade. Some other ukulele would always pull me away, but maybe it's time I...

    I'll be watching this one. Am considering a CK-35GS as well as the SK-30M (also Flight LUS5 or maybe an Eastman EU3C if I want to get more spendy). The concert scale is great for more complicated...

    I saw it on Elderly, all laminate. If you get a chance to try a baritone with a solid spruce or cedar top it will sound quite a bit better!

    The AC condenser is so cold, it sucks a lot of moisture out of the air as it passes over it and the cool air is much dryer. That's why the AC in cars turns on when you defog the front windshield. A...

    I'm curious to know what your ukulele is made of?

    Going to a cedar or spruce top gives the baritone a sound much more appealing to my ear. Something to consider trying if you like the baritone...

    It still seems crazy to have to pay an import duty on an item manufactured in your own country Jerry. Weird rules.

    Canada is similar - Canada Post rarely collects duties on my packages, and if...

    Depending on the player, you may or may not be bothered by nut width. But if you like wider string width, it's nice to have a wider nut. I had an Islander with a 38mm/1.5" nut but the string spacing...

    Also, if you have air conditioning in your home it can potentially reduce humidity significantly. Having a hygrometer will answer the unknown.

    Hmm, interesting. I was comparing the specs to my EJ88B set and yours seem much higher tension and thicker. Probably the thickness exaggerates the squeakiness of the wound strings. The tension might...

    When I was seven I would have been massively disappointed if I got a dolphin and found out I could have had a shark! :D

    7 year olds can learn to play the guitar, so I don't think size matters that much. Having said that, stick with a soprano. Lots of durable, inexpensive options there. A Kala dolphin/shark or Flight...

    *EDIT - I confirmed the specs and my Grover's are 8.1 mm and didn't fit, so very likely 8.0 will require reaming too*

    I'm not sure why pegs from the same brand wouldn't be standardized. From...

    My SK-38 had to be reamed a bit to fit Grover 6’s, although they’re a bit wider at 8.1 mm. Let us know how it works out.

    If it's your first soprano, it's always going to feel a little tight to play at first. If you stick to it, concerts will feel so roomy in comparison. I had a sopranino for a while and my soprano felt...

    I was kind of interested in Kamoa after a trip to Kauaii once too. They seem to like using maple with a spruce top on a lot of their models but I'm not sure about 10 years ago. Wouldn't be my first...

    Keep in mind, spending $1000 on a ukulele doesn't mean you'll like it. I love KoAlohas, but the few Kamakas I've tried didn't interest me. Others will have the opposite opinion. I play soprano, but...

    Old fridges are power hogs. I replaced my fridge in 2007 and it's already paid for itself twice in electricity savings.

    If you don't really need it, get rid of it. Otherwise, look for something...

    The smoke crossed the border into Vancouver a few days ago and we're up around 200. It's pretty terrible, so it's hard to imagine how bad it is in Oregon where I see numbers well over 500. Gets...

    This is why I buy new. Don't pass up the perk of being able to return it. Even if you have to pay return shipping, you'll get back a lot more than the $350 you want to sell it for. Get out while you...

    Thanks, I'll check it out. I've had it on my laptop for 4 years now and haven't made a tab with it (just updated from 2.0 to 3.5). I've used other tabbing software, but not often.
