    Another vote for keeping THIS forum going. I've been to the Discord site, but frankly can't quite figure it out, and certainly don't see any advantage to having a "chat" room over a more traditional...

    A few folks have mentioned storing a copy of their files offsite. Best solution I have found for that is keeping the files on the small hard drive in a bank safe deposit box. I have two of these...

    That's certainly interesting about the more balanced tone. As much as I like my "original" Klos, the tone does suffer when compared to my Farallon. Can't wait to run a comparison with the new Klos.

    We may give Webex a try. So far we've tried Zoom and Discord, and I think Discord was a bit easier to use. But neither allows sound from more than one player at a time.

    Well it's a bit premature, but I couldn't resist the idea of ordering a full carbon Klos recently. So what that one arrives I'll be selling my current Klos to make room. It cost me $500 including...

    Hard to tell from the small photo, but while the shape is similar, it's probably closer to the Enya Nova. The frets look to be plastic, while the Lava has metal frets, right? And of course you have...

    Thanks - that provided a well needed laugh. Except for the part about the IRA. That was a bit too close to home.

    Got to imagine it would indeed void any warranty - if that matters to you. As for drilling, it's essentially an injection molded polycarbonate uke, and I wouldn't trust a screw to hold in that...

    IF you are using just alcohol and water it won't leave a residue. So just make your own from rubbing alcohol (70% is the sweet spot) and that won't be a concern.

    Guess this is another reason to own a Enya Nova or Outdoor Ukulele. A pure solution of 70% alcohol won't harm a poly finish if wiped down quickly, but I wouldn't do it on a French Polish or nitro...
