    Electric uke gear

    Just picked up a ditto x4 looper, a boss rv6 and getting a compressor. that’s enough for my performance needs, pop and jazz. I may add a blues pedal at some point. any thoughts on compressor? Lots of opinions out there! Mike

    Here I am playing my transcription of Back Cello Suite 2 Prelude. My playing isn't fantastic but you can hear the great intonation and tone of the instrument.

    No, that means you pay the cost for shipping. (I'll pay for shipping materials, boxes, bubblewrap, tape and so on).

    Sold Kamaka Concert HF2 L Long neck, 1 year old, bought from Mim's

    I agree. The tone is that of a concert ukulele. The smaller body is neat. I really like it. I just don't need it.

    FYI one of these sold used here on UU for 1250 in 2012. They probably cost around 1300 or 1400 back then.

    Sold Kamaka Concert HF2 L Long neck, 1 year old, bought from Mim's

    Ok, finally got around to taking the pictures! I also own an HF3 Tenor. I bought them both to compare what I liked to play, and the tenor won. This concert Kamaka is a lovely, lovely instrument with a really warm tone and I've got mixed emotions about letting it go, but I'm moving more towards...

    NUD. Risa LP Electric Steel String Ukulele from Mim's Ukes. Awesome!

    the bridges were tightened/loosened in the exact opposite way they should have been. Once I looked at the setup on a guitar, I saw immediately what the problem was. Now has beautiful intonation. It's still fussy, but that's a short stringed instrument for you.

    NUD. Risa LP Electric Steel String Ukulele from Mim's Ukes. Awesome!

    Thanks, I took it over to Matt Umanov and had him look at it, he looked at me with great kindness and pity and said, who the hell set up your bridge. Then he showed me the right way to do it. All is well. Thanks!

    NUD. Risa LP Electric Steel String Ukulele from Mim's Ukes. Awesome!

    My G string is also a half step off. I adjusted the bridge screw but didn't help. I can tune it open or I can tune it fretted but not both. I guess the only thing left to try is the truss rod.

    Risa Electric Les Paul, intonation / tuning problems

    No matter what I do I can't get the intonation right. I'm adjusting the bridge screws, checking on open vs 12th fret as recommended, and (using a Kala tuner) the notes are always 50pts (or whatever you call them) off. Is it just a lemon instrument? I can get C, E and A in at least the right...

    Risa Les Paul

    I've had the Risa Les Paul for awhile now, biggest problem is the placement of the amp jack. It doesn't really work to plug in a Fender Mustang Micro into the thing, gets crushed on your lap because of the angle. And I have to say, the intstrument is REALLY heavy. I guess that's the nature of...

    For Sale Kamaka HF2L (long neck) Concert

    In great condition and has only been played in my office in my spare time (I'm a software developer). Never been gigged out. Why? We're moving offices and acoustic instruments won't work in the new office, so bought an electric uke and headphones. My HF3 Kamaka at home will serve my needs just...

    Price Drop Kamaka HF-2L Concert

    Last price cut, to $1200. Sorry I've been slow getting pix up, will do that tonight. Given the lack of replies, I gather this isn't a sought after item :) I also see a lot of unsold ukes here, so I'm also seeing that sales tend to go to either cheap ukes or super-expensive vintage or specialty...
