    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    The Flukes and Fleas are definitely expensive, but I do like that the money is going to support people making stuff locally and using local suppliers. I agree the Outdoor also is made locally and definitely more durable! I'm more of a guitar player though so this would really be my only uke...

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    Thank you, your analysis makes sense to me. I am mostly going to be in cities and not outdoors, so the MFC instruments are definitely what I'm leaning towards.

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    Thanks for the direct comparison between the outdoor tenor and the fluke laminate! I thought the Flea soprano laminate I had was excellent. The only problem really is trying to decide if I want a concert Flea, concert Fluke, or a tenor Fluke at this point. And then of course choosing between...

    Thanks, pretty cool to hear that the laminate is very durable. I'll take a look at the reviews section.

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    Thank you, very helpful to hear the details about when you humidify and when you don't (and also in what situations you're ok with leaving the Fluke in the car) That's a great story about the Flea and the Harley :)

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    Was that the 1st generation soprano or the 2nd generation?

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    Oh, thank you for describing your thought process and what you ultimately chose! Very interesting that a wood fretboard can affect what can be replaced. I did like having my Flea soprano around, but now I'm interested in trying out the Fluke sound.

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    It sounds like you don't have to worry too much about the humidity or dryness? I was wondering if the upgrade from laminate was worth it and if I'd need to be more careful in dry or damp situations.

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    Thank you, knowing that it fits in the Kala Concert Transit bag is great information! Is it a laminate top or is it a koa / spruce one? I also like the look of the Outdoor Uke and the fact that it is cheaper doesn't hurt! I do like the look of the Fluke / Flea even though it's not traditional...

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    Thanks for sharing your experience! Do you worry about the humidity or strength of the solid top (as compared to a laminate?)

    Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor?

    I was trying to find some sound comparisons between these three ukes but I thought perhaps folks here might have more direct experience! Can anyone comment on the sound differences between the Concert Fluke, Tenor Fluke, or Outdoor Carbon Tenor? I'm looking for a new ukulele and considering one...

    Air travel: Outdoor Tenor in Gig Bag or Hard Case?

    Yes, I'll be flying in North America. Thanks for the advice on putting the instrument opposite my seat. In the past I've taken a first-generation Outdoor soprano in my backpack (with the thinnest possible gig bag) and it was fine at my feet under the seat. But traveling with anything larger...

    Air travel: Outdoor Tenor in Gig Bag or Hard Case?

    Thanks! Yes, I am afraid the tenor might just be a little too big to fit under the seat. Perhaps I should reconsider and take a concert size instead.

    Air travel: Outdoor Tenor in Gig Bag or Hard Case?

    I was thinking about getting an Outdoor Tenor for some airplane travel and I was trying to decide if I should take it in a gig bag or a hard case. With a gig bag, I might be able to take it on as a carry-on and place it under my feet or above someone's luggage in the overhead bins. On the...

    Comparison between 0XK and Flea Soprano?

    I was wondering if anyone had any experience with both a laminate flea soprano and a Martin 0XK? I like the balance on the flea, how is it on the Martin? I currently have the Flea but I was wondering if the 0XK would sound any different? Has anyone run across any sound clips? Thanks!

    Is an Islander Soprano neck heavy?

    If you own an Islander Soprano, do you find it to be neck heavy? I've played an old Martin soprano in the store and it was really light and balanced, weight wise.
