    I just noticed a faint water stain on the label in my Kamaka. I guess the Oasis will live in the head stock part of the case from now on.

    As a former machinist I've met people who had developed allergic reactions to nickle. Very hard for them as it affected their livelihood.

    When the time comes to change strings I'll have to try different strings until it sounds right I guess. Sorting them out by guess and by golly, I'd go with Fremonts first followed by D'Addarios,...

    Yes, that follows if D'Addario makes the Kamaka strings because the D'Addarios are nylon. I can't tell for sure if the strings on my uke are nylon or fluorocarbon.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    It seems that D'Addarios are nylon and Fremonts are fluorocarbon. Maybe when it comes time to replace the strings I should try both.

    This HMS ad for the HF-1D says the nut is micarta. Don't know if the plainer HF-3 has the same. Micarta is more a phenolic resin than plastic.
