    The pandemic hasn't really changed the amount of time I spend playing/practicing my uke each day. In some ways it has increased it. The outlet for my playing has changed, and in many ways my ukulele...

    Good experiences with HMS, Mim, and Uke Republic. I think Elderly Music does set-ups as well. They seem to carry a wide range of ukes. They are located in Lansing Michigan.

    Yeah, I’m hoping the contestants have a very large window of time to use their travel prizes.

    I used the regulars on my 2006 concert. Not a scepter, so I don't know if the headstock is exactly the same. I'd say, call or email HMS and ask them.

    I changed out the tuners on my 2006 KoAloha. I got the ones that Ukecaster is showing above from an ebay dealer (can't remember which one). I had my local acoustic guitar shop technician switch them...

    I've owned a few long neck sopranos. As mentioned, it was to get the soprano sound with more finger room. In the end, I just wasn't a soprano sound person, so the neck didn't matter all that much. A...

    I have a Roland AC-33 that I like a lot, but it's way more than what you need. It's 30w, electric or battery powered, has a 30 sec. looper and a few chorus settings built in. It can support two ukes...

    I'm anxious to hear how you like the Zoom. I keep thinking about getting a looper/effects pedal. Can't decide. I'm not a tech type person & hate fiddly things, so that holds me back.

    HMS has a Kala concert with a pick-up on sale for $149 & free shipping. Might be a good one to “dip your toe” into an electric uke. HMS will set it up nicely.

    Determine your price range, then look at what HMS or Mim have available. All my pick-ups are MiSi. Sound great, no pre amp needed, no battery to change, simple to use.
