    Favorite Uke You've Ever Played

    My favourite is my Kanilea K-2 C DLX, a concert ukulele. It has just the perfect sound and the koa is absolutely stunning. I'm also a big fan of my Black Bear soprano.

    Vintage Martin S0 1963+ finish becoming cloudy

    Thanks for your reply. If it's really trapped moisture, then I would expect that I can't simply rub it off, which I easily can (until it reappears in time). Some pictures before a quick rub, clearly showing the 'problem':

    Vintage Martin S0 1963+ finish becoming cloudy

    Vintage Martin Style O 1963+ finish becoming cloudy Hi all! I've got a question in regards to a vintage 1963+ Martin Style O I own that is very good condition. The finish on this Martin gets a sort of satin with a sort of whitish cloudy look after a few months of being stored. After a short...

    NUD: Black Bear macadamia soprano

    Hi all! NUD today (actually 2 days ago, but I couldn't stop playing). I received a Black Bear macadamia soprano and what a beautiful ukulele that is. Just wow. Macadamia is an amazing wood to look at. It looks different from every angle and light source. Specs: macadamia body, rosewood bridge...

    NUD: Ken Timms Style 0 soprano

    Hi all, This week I finally got the chance to snap up a Ken Timms Style 0 soprano on eBay. I've always been too late or it was just not exactly the one I wanted (sometimes they have golden tuners instead of silver or have a lighter colour). Ken prices his ukuleles very attractively. They are...

    Covered Bridge vs Ono - a comparsion (on request)

    Hi all, I'm posting a short comparison between Covered Bridge and Ono ukuleles, both made in Oregon, USA as I've had a few PM's in which other forum members asked me how they compare. As both ukuleles have different specs they're not tonally comparable. The differences are in the way they are...

    Korala UKS-70-NT soprano

    This weekend I bought a 120 euro ukulele as a present in a local music store. It was the first time that I actually tried ukes in store. They didn't stock high-end ukes, but had a range of Korala's, Lag's and Staggs. Most of those ukes were in the 80-200 euro range and almost all of them...

    Confused by my new soprano

    Ok, till now I only played tenors. Why? Because I liked their looks... they look like little guitars, only the size of everything is much more balanced. I was already the proud owner of a WW all koa tenor and a Kala ASAC-T. Both have a very different sound. What I was missing was a soprano. I...

    The Beach Boys - Isn't It Time

    I was surprised to hear the uke prominently featured in one of the songs on the new Beach Boys album. The song is very nice and the uke really brightens up the music. I've checked some concert vids to verify this and they're playing a Fender ukulele, just like Train.

    Kala KA-ASAC-T updated version

    Hi, I'm new into the world of ukulele and I'm really enjoying it (basic strumming that is at the moment). Today I received my Kala KA-ASAC-T from Southern Ukuleles in the UK. It's my 2nd uke (I had a Fender Hau'Oli). I didn't notice it for the first few hours, until I started looking at other...
