    Strings String suggestions for Cedar on Rosewood?

    Flurocarbons. Oasis or Southcoast. I have that Pono Pro Classic uke, it's a winner and a keeper, especially since Pono will no longer be using rosewood. I just bought a Cordoba C10 classical guitar in Canadian cedar over EIR, and I have a rare Tacoma crossover in the same. Cedar tops are already...

    Any Violinists on here ?

    My mom played and was a prodigy. Her mom was first violinist in her dad's bands, then my mother was. He was the NBC Orchestra leader for quite awile waaaaay back. My Mom just died and I inherited a Thir and a Magini. I would love to take lessons but my uncle asked for them, and since he is dying...

    Guitar Forums

    I've been a member on UU since 2009, before that I lurked, I've paid for VIP and additionally 2 years on UUU which I don't use but paid anyway because the guys deserve the funds. But UU has changed so much over the last couple of years that I always seem to come away feeling blue. All the people...

    Are you fluffy?

    I would like to lose 25 pounds to get back to my fighting weight, but with menopause changes and low thyroid issues it is tough. When I eat even less my metabolism just slows down. I eat 1/4 of what my scrawny SO eats. I never had an issue with weight until I hit 50. Aloha shirts come in a lot...

    Bari Curious? Lanikai LU-21B

    Their least expensive baritone. Runs $129-$179 on Amazon. No case, it's a great wall hanger as it is laminate. Solid geared tuners. Straight neck with a comfortable C shape. Frets feel nice, good slick medium half round profile. I have notched the saddle and deepened the nut slot since they...

    Bushman Spruce top mahogany body Concert scale

    All solid woods, but I can't find out exactly what model this is, label just says BSC for presumably Bushman Spruce Concert. I'm guessing circa 2006-11. The only reference I can find to a spruce top concert in 'hog is a HomeGrown model, of which a few were made by luthier David Gill. I think...

    Kanile'a K-1 T Deluxe Blond Curly Koa with case

    As the title says, Kanile'a K-1 T DLX tenor uke. Circa 2009. Original owner. Very golden blond very curly koa, neck looks like matching koa on this one, and the photos don't begin to show the 3D effect of the curl, it looks deep and wet under the UV gloss finish with very high chatoyance. Has a...

    Blackbird Clara

    Just a quick review. I was last on the list for the road trip Blackbird Clara ukulele, I got it Christmas week which gave me little actual time with it, so this is just my overall take. It came strung with Oasis low G so that is all I played. I think it would do well with any flourocarbon, and...

    Best (in your opinion) Tenor for ~$1000

    Collings UT-2 or UT-2K or Pono Pro Classic with the slot head and radius, either Rosewood with a cedar top, or hog with spruce according to one's preference. Also a vote for the right Kanile'a.

    NGD again, been awhile

    I generally never post NUDs but this NGD is a good one! And the guitar forum needs some new posts! My last guitar purchase about a year or more ago was a vintage Harmony spruce topped mahogany tenor so it doesn't count as much. I have been looking for that just right steel string acoustic...

    I'd bet my left little toe

    that people carrying any kind of instrument are going to be running into officious dunderheads a lot more often at border crossings into the US. It really seems the average US IQ has to be down around moron level now judging from evidence I find all around me, because the level of sheer...

    To restore or not to restore?...That is the question

    I'm guessing that means if it looks like my Style 3 here to just repair the damage to make it playable, as full restoration is not really possible or is not worth the financial investment. I'm hoping to get a good player, because it sounded great even partially tuned up on only two old strings...

    How do you decide what's acceptable and what is not acceptable?

    I was looking at brand new KoAlohas running $900-$1,200, and both had glue showing on the fretboard at the bindings. Glue. Unacceptable. It should have been wiped off when originally glued and / or then polished out if it was still showing. For the same price my Pono Pro Classic was impeccable...

    Collings tenor, who prefers other than stock strings?

    I just got a Collings UT-2, their mahogany tenor ukulele, and I'm really pleased with it! I believe stock strings are Savarez but I haven't had them on a uke before and the tension is a little high for my old fingers. I like Worths and Southcoasts on my other tenors and though I hate to post...

    Just for a laugh, new case company

    I dunno, something about it makes me think this case would be one of the ones that smell really bad.
