    Stay safe, everyone in Maui

    I don't know if this has already been posted elsewhere, but I will put it here as well. As of today (10 August), Craig Chee and Sarah Maisel are organizing a fundraising stream. To best accomplish this, they want to reach 10,000 subscribers on YouTube, so that YouTube will be able to send the...

    Done! Delete Negative Feedback Threads? Nope!

    I think option #1 is the way to go. As long as feedback stays civil, it is important that people feel that they can give their own viewpoint, both positive and negative. I know that this can lead to some really, really grey areas and threads that can be uncomfortable, but if we want this forum...

    Impressions of Ordering a Custom Ukulele

    I can't wait to hear how this one turns out. I love Pops' work, and I strongly prefer concerts. The idea of a concert Wow intrigues me greatly!

    Anyone into Gibson Ukes?

    There are many folks, myself included, who are interested in Gibson. I am a Michigander, after all... Definitely list them!

    Old to new Kamaka transition

    This is why I had a special order HF-2 made, with a tie bridge!

    I don't think this is cool at all

    (Please note, the beginning of this is for comedic and sarcastic effect...) I don't know. Copies can be expensive. Staples charges like 20 cents a page for black and white copies, in low volumes. I would just assume that every attendee who paid for the "packet" was getting at least a 100 page...

    Which uke builders use local woods?

    I came to this thread to post this! Aaron Keim of Beansprout uses lots of local woods (as well as reclaimed wood) from responsible sources to make some amazing and beautiful instruments.

    New Klos Concert Uke

    Thanks for the heads up! As an avowed "concert guy" this is *very* interesting indeed!

    New Uke Day (NUD) NUD: Kamaka HF-2 Concert

    I have never really noticed that much of a difference between radius and non-radius fretboards, at least for my hands. I find that the neck shape and profile have a far bigger effect for me. I don't know how I would feel if I had two instruments with the exact same neck profile but one had a...

    New Uke Day (NUD) NUD: Kamaka HF-2 Concert

    Thanks! That list isn't even completely up-to-date, I'm afraid. I kind of have a strong case of UAS... I have a group of about 8 or so that I sort of regularly rotate through. I might play one for several days to weeks in a row, then switch to another for a few weeks. It sort of goes in cycles...

    New Uke Day (NUD) NUD: Kamaka HF-2 Concert

    Looks gorgeous. I love my Kamaka concert, and I hope that yours brings you many years of enjoyment! As for that sharp edge on the nut, I've run into that before, with both Kamaka and Martin as I recall. Certainly give TUS a call, but my (completely unsolicited) advice is to do what I did; take...

    Twisted Wood - 20% Off

    Yeah, I was very tempted by their made in Canada cedar top, but I just can't quite bring myself to support a shop engaging in those kind of shenanigans.

    Twisted Wood - 20% Off

    Anyone know if they have ever cleared up their use of the word "koa"? (For those who don't know, see this thread from August 2022.) From a quick look around the web site, it seems they are still calling their all solid "Koa Ukulele" that even though they have said that it is actually acacia...

    I don't think this is cool at all

    What the actual hell? Has anyone told the TUS folks that their content is being used to promote sales at another store?

    WTB: Ken Timms CUBAN Mahogany Soprano

    In the US, I suppose it might be described as "laid back" or "relaxed." It certainly doesn't have the same negative connotations over here.

    KoAloha ʻUkulele | PBS Hawaiʻi Home is Here Episode 101, Aug 28, 2022

    Once again demonstrating how great Pops is! Be sure to give him a big "thank you" from the entire ukulele community for all the does!

    Now that's a song I would love to see a tutorial (or some sheet music/tabs) on!

    Recording for dummies?

    Do note that not all external recorders can work as USB mics. Many of the newer models can, but do double check!
