    Humidity vs Ukulele

    You're in the clear. But higher than 70% RH can also give problems , f.x. a wavy top or cracks at the edges where the top looses adhesion with the sides.

    How many ukes have you got? (expanded poll)

    I'm afraid there are other variables. I have f.x. the impression that ukulele in itself does attract the more seasoned part of the population.

    Nova U Mini modification - Silent Practice Uke

    Nova U Mini modification - Silent Practice Uke

    New Uke Day (NUD) Enya U

    I was quite impressed by the sound on YouTube but really bought it out of curiosity as I for several years have had a Hora mandolin with solid top, in my car without problems but in reality it doesn't sound much better than expected from such a small body and composite material.
