    Very nice work, BB. It should sound good thru a Vox Mini-Super Beetle stack if the original Marshall has become unwieldy.

    Thanks, Good U. I had been debating putting a piezo in my 5 string steel string tenor acoustic (added low D) which is the easy route. After listening to your axe, a double rail humbucker in the same...

    Good U, Those steel strings have such a beautiful, bell tone. You must have a magnetic pick-up. Looks like a 4 pole humbucker. Please, provide details. Thanks in advance.

    Thank You Everyone for the suggestions. I mounted 2 front strap pegs. The one at the base of the heel is put there to hold the headstock above the table when the uke's back is set down horizontally....

    Jupu, Depending on your choice of music and personal preference, you should make the determination between the MV50 Clean or the MV50 AC. The clean model has no gain knob which is very good if you...

    Thank You, All, for the replies. Still considering the front strap peg location on my acoustic. As an experiment, I mounted the strap peg on the front forward shoulder of my very heavy solid body...

    Thanks Rip and Rafter, I actually do push the reach into the treble stratosphere on rare occasion. So, I noticed that a strap and peg might be an obstacle on that portion of the neck. However, the...
  9. Front Strap Peg Location on an Acoustic Uke?

    Instead of running your strap to the headstock which I find awkward, where is best to mount the strap peg on an acoustic ukulele? The base of the heel of the neck mount makes the uke roll forward....

    Another fuzzy pic. I drilled 3 new holes for string pegs. The G and E are a hair out of perfect placement but it plays fine and the bridge intonation is very good according to the 12th fret...

    Now, Wiggy. This pic of the nut is fuzzy but the best of the batch. I kept the 2 outside string places. Cut a notch in the middle just a fraction to the high side becase of string thickness. The two...

    First, Keeno. Yes, but if she sings, I sing, too. That is the deal with with our uke group. Only, the ubass player is exempt. It may be awhile as I have committed to do the audio/video from my kayak.

    With a half hour to spare, Miss Oscar is now a ukulele tuned to DGCEA (not re-entrant). Conversion is complete. She sings a sweet alto. And, the table is clear. Time for a beer.

    As cluttered as the table is, I only needed a portable drill, a set of needle files ($4 at Harbor Freight), and a coping saw to make this conversion. During the process, I discovered that the tuner...

    Jerry, I appreciate the sentiment but the scale length might be beyond ukedom to replace my daily driver. Did consider painting a bikini on that cute soon to be uke but I prefer the look of a bare...

    Rafter, sounds like your Roland is a DC amp as well which is likely why it sounds so sweet on the demo videos. Hopefully you can match your power cord output and specific input plug from the lithium...

    Thanks, Mike. That Phil Jones amp looks like a top flight grab and go rig for the bassman wanting to do a quick sit in in a small or volume restricted venue. Bass in case on one hand, amp in the...

    I have 50 years of nice things to look at cluttering all of my corners. Stay with the Vox MV50 AC. The most power in a tiny space that I have found anywhere and easily turned into off grid use. Best...

    Mike and Rafter, Master Turf, got to the root of the issue. DC only is the most efficient amp for portability. So, now the quest becomes: What amplifiers or cpap machines are available that run from...
