    Outdoor Ukulele Closed For Shop Move

    I received this email from Scott just yesterday, in response to my question about this: "We recently moved the company from Bend to our farm in Corvallis. Our builder just finished the new shop, but I still need to move into it. I should be ready for visitors in around 2 weeks." So they won't...

    UAS Anonymous Group

    Yes, I guess UAS Anonymous must be by invitation only. They have no sympathy for those of us suffering on the outside. Good thing we have UU.

    Keeping Track

    A question for my fellow UAS sufferers (happy sufferers, of course) ... How do you keep track of your ukuleles? Do you have a good database, spreadsheet, or app you use to track brands and models, purchase and sale dates, purchasing sources, modifications (such as strings) and so forth? I could...

    UAS Anonymous Group

    I was looking at some ukulele groups on Facebook last night and joined a couple. In the process, I saw a link to a UAS Anonymous group pop up. Unfortunately, before I could look into it, it disappeared and I have been unable to find the group again. Considering so many posters here who suffer...

    Festival 2023 Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival

    I just want to add my thanks to Mitch for putting on a tremendous festival. I made the 663-mile drive from Utah, and although I had some complications and frustrations on Friday and Sunday, Saturday was fantastic! It was well worth the drive. I was disappointed to see that there will not be any...

    Wonderful Ukulele Evening

    Agreed. It was a fantastic performance (both playing and singing). I'll be anxiously awaiting their next Utah appearance.

    Strings Rebel Double Creme Replacement Strings?

    I realized I'm up to 103 messages! (I was going to celebrate after 100 but missed it. :) ) I also realize that I need to work on providing more help (considering my relative lack of knowledge) and not just taking it!

    Strings Rebel Double Creme Replacement Strings?

    I did it! It took my wife and me three tries. I thought for sure I'd twisted and kinked the strings so much that I was going to have to buy new ones, but we got it. It's a tie-bar bridge with Gotoh Planetary tuners. The hardest part for us was looping the strings properly to get the twist knot...

    What's the difference between Worth Clear and Worth Brown (I just noticed that I called them Brown Worth :rolleyes:🥴)?

    Is reentrant tuning harmful?

    I assume the date is also relevant to this age bit? It would be interesting to know what the average age really is.

    Strings Rebel Double Creme Replacement Strings?

    Thank you! I just ordered a set. As rainbow21 said, I am missing out on playing my best ukulele (fortunately, I have other lesser ones I can play in the meantime). I called around and our biggest local store has Martin M600 strings. I think I may buy a set of those and install them, then save...

    It appears that they have only low-Gs right now. And no KoAloha strings at all. :(

    Experience, I guess. ;) I keep reading about people changing their strings and improving the sound, and wonder what I'm missing....

    Strings Rebel Double Creme Replacement Strings?

    My problem is not knowing how Excellas compare. They sound good to me, but I'm far from a good judge. I have two questions: 1. Should I install new Excellas, or are there better options (or ones that I will want to try)? 2. If I were to install alternative strings, what are my choices and how...

    Strings Rebel Double Creme Replacement Strings?

    I just had a string break on my Rebel Double Creme concert, so I obviously need to find replacement strings. I just did a search and it appears that the original strings (The Rebel Excella?) are not readily available. I have seen Brown Worth, Living Waters, and Uke Logic strings recommended for...
