    Sold Laughlin 3K (Martin 3K Reproduction) Soprano

    Crazy Eddie had some tv/electronics stores in Philly, too. I remember one up in the far northeast at one point. Remembering him made me laugh. The best prices on things bought off the back of a truck!

    Myth, magic, truth...ukulele "opening up"

    Wooden instruments change over the years. Do they open up? That is subjective, but the tone of an instrument can certainly change.

    Developing Vibrato

    So, how is your vibrato? When I hear Jake or Kris, I am always impressed by their controlled vibrato. I am having a hard time getting anything worthwhile. Typically, the string doesn't really want to move all that much, because the nylon strings seem to slip beneath my fingertips rather than get...

    Pepe Romero Jr Ukuleles

    Is Pepe still making any? I see the Romero Creations ones, but I am more curious about the ones that he has a hand in rather than his import line.

    Banjolele String Lengths: A Question

    I have a new (to me) concert scale banjolele, but I am unsure what strings to order. Unlike a standard ukulele, they require more length of string from tail piece to peg end. So if you have a concert scale banjolele, do you order tenor scale strings? Or am I overthinking it?

    Strap damage???

    Definitely not an old wive's tale. I worked in the guitar industry while in college. Here are some examples of Nitro burn caused by vinyl/plastics/etc. Google "Nitro Burn" and focus in The Gear Page or The Acoustic Forum for more examples.
