    NUD: Cocobolo Baritone

    This thread is what pushed me over the edge to purchase one of the recent super tenors, and the dang thing is just so, so, so good. Tuned Bb. Currently strung with Aquila Red wound low G and Nyltechs (highly recommended), but it'll definitely get a set of Thomastik CF-30/27 down the road.

    Yet another build started, .... a de Houtwinkel baritone

    My personal opinion, of course, but I've been following his Instagram for a while and the de Houtwinkel ukes are best-looking ukes I've ever seen. The wood sets he gets are next level and the builds are so friggin' clean. +1 looking forward to your NUD. Congrats!

    Low G...differences between Freemont Soloist/LaBella 908 & Thomastik-Infeld CF30

    My experience with these strings is that the TI CF-30 is less "boomy"and more balanced than the LaBella. I use the CF-30 and CF-27 on my tenor and have been impressed with the pair's ability to blend well with many treble string sets.

    The Cocobolo Ukuleles Owners Thread

    Feels like a dedicated Cocobolo Ukuleles thread is overdue. I suspect, now that TUS will be carrying a few, they will see a surge in popularity and questions. The unique sound and scale lengths of these beauties lends to experimentation with strings, tunings, etc. And, of course, the sound...

    I have one of the 18.5" scale super tenors from the recent batch. Tuned Bb with Nyltechs; it is phenomenal.

    Kala elite super tenor question.

    I'm obviously a massive fan of the myrtle, but I'm sure you can't go wrong with either. Let us know where you land. Good luck with the hunt.

    Kala elite super tenor question.

    I have both a Kala Elite Myrtle tenor and a Cocobolo Super Tenor and can echo some of the sentiments expressed above. My Kala Elite is the best tenor I've had the good fortune to lay hands on and the one by which all other ukes are judged, chosen from an impressive selection of ukes, including...

    Strings Dates of modern ukulele strings after nylon?

    I play Aquilas because they give me the sound I'm looking for on my ukes, but having @mimmo on these boards makes me love them even more.

    Thanks for the offer @Uke man, but I am tenor-only and, as much I love Aquila, the Sugars just didn't do it for me. But hopefully someone else will see this and hit you up. I feel like we probably all have a bunch of random stuff, sitting in cigar boxes (everyone keeps their extra strings in...

    Strings Piecing together your own string set

    This is my current set-up on my Kala Elite Myrtle tenor. I just swapped the trebles from super nylgut to reds. Super duper splitting hairs here, but I think I might like the feel (tactility and tension) of the reds a touch better ... I definitely prefer the sound of the Red E string, though the...

    What are you listening to?

    A lot of Bossa Nova; a lot of Grant Green, lately. Pretty steady diet of both. So tasty.
