    Don't know if anybody's mentioned this, but I didn't see it on this thread, so I will. A seller on Amazon (US) has had the Reunion Blues tenor and concert Continental models available for super...

    I enjoyed your post, engravertom. I must have missed the theorbo when I read the Narnia series, long ago. Watch this video. and see if it doesn't bring a smile to your face:

    I've practically got OCD when it comes to desiring symmetry in my instruments. I don't even like cutaways, or "comfort edges", for that reason. They just look bizarre and unattractive, and if...

    Kudos - nice job! And I never knew Ashokan Farewell had lyrics, despite having heard dozens of different instrumental versions. That's my one new thing learned today. ;)

    I can only speak for the all-mahogany model TT, as well. When one recently came up in the marketplace, I jumped on it, because the all-mahogany was the one that most attracted me from the videos I'd...

    I have a spruce-top Kala ASOV-T (ovangkol back & sides), and the sound, which I wouldn't particularly characterize as "bright", is nonetheless quite lovely - it's very full and resonant, with both...

    I thought this thread was going to be about who moved the farthest away with the largest number of ukuleles.

    I use my thumb and first two fingers. Sort of the same way I type. LOL Middle finger tends to get better sound than my index (much more meat on it), but am working on technique to compensate for...

    That is brilliant! I had given up on the darn things, because they kept popping off unexpectedly. The last straw came while I was practicing out on my patio, and I saw two of my cats in the...

    I just got one too, and it does have a very beautiful sound. However, I don't know if it's "light". It might be. It's certainly lighter than my other two tenors, but it's supposed to be like a...

    Hi! You're not alone here. Do a forum search on "fifths tuning". Also see this thread from a member who did a successful "ukecello" stringing of a baritone.

    I am a lifelong violist, have also...

    My two favorite mandolas have radiused fretboards, so I thought that myself. My first and only baritone ukulele has a flat board, and my first tenor uke has a radiused one. My two subsequent tenors...

    Yeah, same here. I think gloss really brings out the depth of wood grain in a way satin doesn't, especially when the wood is beautifully figured. The key is not having it look cheaply applied, or...

    I once had a mandola with a slotted head, and, as one accustomed to using a minimum-winding technique for restringing on regular pegheads, I found string changes on it to be a PITA. I wouldn't want...

    Mike,

    Yes, that is the only way I would dare to play ukulele, after a long lifetime of playing viola and violin (and later, mandola). ;-)
