    Least expensive good sounding & playing baritone Uke?

    I have that same Kala baritone (newest version) and agree that it definitely punches above its weight. For the price it’s very good, with good fit and finish and tone for the price point.

    Help with first major purchase (500-800$, Tenor, low G)

    I’ll second the Opio. I have a tenor in low g and like it a lot. Listen to sound samples. The Koaloha and Opios have a somewhat scooped mid tone sound profile which may or may not fit your playing style.

    Your Best, Favorite, and Most Played Ukuleles

    I’ve been able to keep UAS at bay, mostly cause there isn’t a uke store nearby. I see the beauties on the Marketplace and drool though. My Kanile’a K-1 in high G and Opio in low g (both tenors) are favorite, best and most played of the few I have. The wood on the K-1 is the prettiest and I can...

    My Ultimate Travel Ukulele

    Very cool. Nicely done with an interesting look. Rough framing carpentry is the best I can muster so always impressed with luthier efforts.

    String spacing KoAloha vs. Kanile'a tenor

    I went through a similar search a while back as there are no shops that carry K brands near me. Went with a Koaloha and was happy with it. Now that I have been playing a while and have a better educated ear, I have been really liking the more balanced Kanile’a sound for the style I have been...

    Welcome! What a great story and a serendipitous find for you. I also have an inexpensive Leolani tenor from TUS that I bought for traveling and it has some of the best playability and value out there.

    Guitar to uke

    Welcome!! Don't forget about baritone uke if you come from guitar. It is typically tuned like the 4 highest strings on guitar (DGBE). I play Bari and tenor.

    UkeLogic squeaks

    Haven’t heard that before or experienced it myself. I live in a pretty dry climate. Only thing I can think of is humidity or hand soap or lotion being used?
