    I've got a USB condenser mic (can't currently recall the make). Plug it into my android phone via an OTG adaptor and it works perfectly. Don't overthink this one!

    I used to have a spruce top Pono tenor. I found the same when I first owned it. It responded well to flourocarbon strings and after about 6 months lost a lot of that muted / quiet tone. Was never the...

    As someone who likes a chunky neck I love the fluke / flea necks. The flat back is a little odd at first but it's incredibly comfortable for me. Had to sell the best soprano I ever had (Takumi 3k)...

    Wow, that Les Paul review just won't die, will it? Baz didn't like it, some people do, can probably move on now. Can at least focus this thread on the uke he has actually reviewed?
