    Favorite learning resources

    For someone like myself who had zero musical experience Ukestuff's DGBE & GCEA University courses are a great intro to the joy of ukulele playing. Someday I might spend the time to finish either or both courses. But for now they started me playing and I'm learning simple songs from Petey Mack's...

    Strings Received my Diamond Secure string ties

    Interesting that these are a new version. I really like the ones I put on back in May which are the pebbly soft rubber version. Easy to use, look tidy, haven't had slipping issues when used per instructions. Not sure if they improve tone but they don't hurt it. Only complaint is that...

    Great post and excellent discussion with commentaries and views I would never have thought of. My simple thought is that like everything else in life there are those who are content to settle at some point in the journey, those who always continue to push forward in a life long quest, those...

    Setups on new ukes

    No personal experience but I've heard very positive comments about retailer baritone setups from Aloha City Ukes, Mainland Ukes, Uke Republic, and The Ukulele Site. A big part will be communicating what you want setup wise with the person whom you buy from.

    Search for a baritone….

    Evening and Welcome. Based on my limited experience you might want to spend some time watching video clips and figuring out what sound you want then decide what wood and if all wood or laminate then start thinning the choices by brands/models that meet your other criteria. If at all...

    Wow who would have ever thought there would be a shortage of Huy Fong? This stuff was everywhere and cheap not that long ago. Need to check the dark recesses of our cupboards and see if a bottle is hiding back there. There is a brand of sauces named Melinda's that are pretty decent and...

    Baritone GCEA Round One

    Found a small issue with having the Lava GCEA strings on the Kala baritone. I like it so much that I haven't played the DGBE Pono baritone more than 15 minutes total in the past 10 days.

    Best sounding cedar tenor uke?

    I've been leaning towards the Ohana tk-50g or ck-50g as my next purchase based on sound samples. Cedar top with solid Rosewood at a good price.

    Baritone ukulele

    Afternoon Rob, I have been happy with my Kala KA-B since receiving it about 18 months ago. I watched every video on low cost baritones I could find and read reviews before deciding to buy the KA-B from the Duke of Uke which is sadly closed. It has good sound and feel for the price and has...
