    This was my reaction as well when I heard the news. I immediately started researching how to setup and host your own forum. Didn't get that far since Rayan already mentioned he's already looking into...

    If your budget is around $500 I would personally definitely go for a new tenor. I believe you can get any of the Pono deluxe models for that kind of money and they are one of the best options at that...

    That's my issue personally. As far as I know, there aren't any that are active. There's a ukulele subreddit which is somewhat active but Reddit doesn't offer separate sections for different types of...

    While I appreciate setting up the UU Discord server and while understanding the problems of maintaining an old forum software, Discord is really not a substitute for a forum such as this. As...

    I would definitely recommend the Flight travel series as well, especially if you don't mind the plastic back and sides. At that $50 / 50€ price range, I'd say they are easily the best value for...

    Last year, I specifically wanted to get a pre-war Martin soprano. Not because I knew that it would automatically be better than the post-war Martins but rather because I thought to myself "if I had...

    Oh wow, I had no idea about that shop. Thank you! They even stock the less expensive aNueNues which are usually extremely rare. Seems it would've been a tad cheaper to buy from there but SUS always...

    Hehe, thank god I mostly play sopranos. I'd be in trouble if I had to stock up on concerts and tenors as well. :D

    You might be right about the frets. For the longest time, I only had either...

    No real reason to switch off from the Martin fluorocarbons. The M600s are excellent on the S1 which, in my opinion, shines with the clear and crisp sound of fluorocarbon. The aforementioned Martin...

    NUD: aNueNue Moon Bird US200

    So, a few weeks back I noticed that SUS had listed three aNueNue Moon Birds, one of each scale. I've always been intrigued by aNueNue, especially since they're so hard to come by even in uke shops...

    In normal circumstances, I'd kill for a local specialised uke shop. I very much prefer to test out a uke (or any other instrument for that matter) before I buy, but I don't think there's a single...

    To alleviate your buyer's remorse a bit, I'll say one thing about the HPL Enyas. The sound they make is quite muted, certainly more so than the Nova U. That might be an advantage for some but for me...

    I didn't notice a change in the girth of the string myself. If there is a difference it's negligible so I don't think it's anything to worry about.

    I think this is a very good point as well. If you're looking at the Enya anyway you certainly should consider the HPL models. They are also extremely sturdy, I personally prefer the sound to plastic...

    You shouldn't automatically think that the Enya is better simply because of the higher price, imo. The Flight travel series are incredible value for what they cost. Personally, while I don't mind...

    That looks absolutely stunning. And pristine as well. You have made me very jealous. I don't think I can take it if you have more vintage ukes of the same quality. :D

    Very nice job. I actually really love how an armrest can bring a nice asymmetry to a banjo uke.
