    That's a shame. I have one I am asking GBP30 for, but it is only UK postage!

    Good luck.

    Ukes with wide necks, narrow necks and everything between. I think they have the right idea not publishing neck width.

    I have been very pleased with all the instruments I bought on AliExpress. I...

    From my understanding sellers do this when they're out of stock and don't want to remove the listing. They put an extra digit in to prevent people ordering something they can't sell.

    They're interesting, those Waterman ukes.

    You'd think with them being moulded plastic that they would be consistent, but I've played a couple. One was a cheap uke, another was unplayable. If you...

    I have had quite good results with a Konami USB mic originally designed for Singstar, an old Playstation game.

    Failing that, I bought a Neat Widget mic for my dad recently. Gibson (who owned them)...

    I really strongly disagree with that. The point about starting out is you don't have any technique yet. You are a blank canvas, which is really exciting.

    As to what you have read in the reviews,...

    Nothing I'm aware of. TBH I would not trust the neck width measurements on any cheap ukes on a big website. Someone will put a different number into the CNC router one day and they will all be...

    End of the week already, so I sneaked one in.

    This is Lullaby of the leaves, written by Bernice Petkere and Joe Young in 1932. I love the imagery in this song.

    I am the opposite to you.

    Since I broke my finger last year, I find larger scale instruments harder to play.

    As to straps, IMO a lot of players use them to mask bad form.

    I think ABS cases are best. Gator ones are really good, but there is another one that seems to have a different label. The one I bought last year was branded Chase but I bought an identical one...

    In this thread, all I've done is make a few points that you may or may not agree with.

    I don't consider an el cheapo uke like a Mahalo a particularly fragile instrument. I have never heard of one being damaged by being left in a car. So long as it plays in tune I wouldn't worry,...

    That looks exactly like my old Regal. Mine sounded nice when played quietly, but not so good when you played it loud. It was a nice thing to own but I sold it because I only keep really nice ukes.

    Right you are, Fluff.

    It makes me wonder why there is so much made of the Outdoor Uke being suitable for all extremes of hot or cold.

    That claim may or may not be true of the instrument, but if...
