    I have a set of the Uke Logic low tension low G strings that I thought I'd try on my Farallon (which for some reason is much harder to play than my other ukes). Has anyone compared the Uke Logic...

    I've purchased WAY too much from them over the years. All of it great - all of it rather expensive. So far I've resisted a StewMax membership on the theory that it would just encourage my habit if...

    Breaking the A string was why I sent my Risa back. If you do a search you'll find lots of comments on this problem. Most folks seem to be able to solve it with a combination of sanding down the...

    Well not to get too pedantic about it (which is, according to my wife, what I do best) WD40 doesn't actually remove scratches - it just fills them in with oil making them harder to see. But as long...
