    FS: Pono AT $140

    Specs here. I bought this during an HMS sale, so I'm passing the savings on to you. It's a GREAT uke but I just prefer sopranos. It has two tiny dings where the back meets the sides. See pics. Otherwise it's mint. It has no case, but it's spent its life in the Florida humidity. It will be...

    Vintage Sheet Music 6

    This is from the 20s and I think it would be called a novelty song. "The Coat and Pants Do All the Work but the Vest Gets All the Gravy." Guy comes home from work, takes off his suit, and sits down to dinner with his vest on. But taking off the suit means taking off the pants. So what kind of...

    Vintage Sheet Music 4: California Here I Come (instrumental, 1924)

    I overdubbed the intro with a low G because the sheet music called for it. Actually there's one low F note too but I couldn't reach that without downtuning. Otherwise it's the usual - one live take of the solo all the way through, and same for the rhythm. Actually the song is a fox trot but I...

    Adding fretboard binding after the fact?

    Hey guys could you answer a question please? Is it possible to add fretboard binding to a uke after the build is complete? Is that something you could take to a luthier and he would glue it on? Most important, does it require sanding down the sides of the neck or some kind of structural change...

    Vintage Sheet Music - Beauty Parade

    This is from Ian Chadwick's vintage sheet music collection, which I recently purchased and am really enjoying. These old tunes are quite challenging and complex. But beautiful too. Beauty Parade was composed by Andrew Donnelly in 1929 for a traveling revue. The song is a march so I imagine...

    NUD - Wunderkammer Ike soprano

    I couldn't be happier with my new uke! It's all solid mahogany body and neck, and everything else is rosewood - fretboard, faceplate, nut, bridge, saddle. First impressions - it's like your birthday party as a kid. Pure joy. This puppy weighs 341 grams on our kitchen scale! Light and lightly...

    FS - Earnest Palomino concert uke in mango

    This is the best sounding uke I've ever played and I'm sad to let it go. But I have a new custom on the way. I bought it last year from the luthier, Joel Eckhaus. I'm the first owner. It has lived in a case with an Oasis humidifier. I'm currently on vacation in Florida. It will ship from...

    Wunderkammer Ike progress pics

    I ordered an Ike from luthier Liam Kirby in the UK. It's a mahogany soprano. If you're not familiar with Wunderkammer, check out Baz's review here. Also Sam Muir plays one, so between her and what Baz had to say, I had to get one for myself. On with the pics!

    Did you play uke in the '80s - or before?

    How was it playing uke before the latest revival? Did you know others who played? Were there events or clubs? How was the uke community in Hawaii then?

    Louisiana 1927

    It's been 10 years since the hurricane. I lived in New Orleans, pre-Katrina. I have friends there who were badly affected. Some lost their homes, but none lost their lives. They're still there today.
