    Long Neck Soprano question

    I have a couple of longnecks. Their voicing is somewhere in between a standard soprano and a concert, due to their extra scale length, but still with that sweet, sweet, soprano tone, because of their smaller bodies.

    GAS, UAS has a big brother

    Did you know that Rick Nielsen, lead guitarist for Cheap Trick, once had over 2,000 axes in his collection? :oops: Now down to around 400, according to him. The battle between the love of guitar (or ukulele, etc, as the case may be), and the love of guitars, is real.

    You can't beat a good multi-effects processor. Unfamiliar with this product, but I know Hotone makes some great hybrid mini tube amps.

    Do YOU think a strap button devalues the instrument?

    If it comes like that stock, then no. Except for solid-body, electric instruments.

    Is there a way to strum and immediately mute the sound (not chucking)

    For open chords, train your pinkie to mute the strings. With barre chords, simply release the pressure on the fretboard by slightly lifting your fingers, after playing.

    New Uke Day (NUD) Unplanned impulse NTMUD / NUD - Kala GATU thinbody

    Yeah, mine was quite rough looking, with splinters and chips everywhere. Must be a quality-control issue, unlike the spruce-top travel models, which are flawlessly finished. Perhaps made in a different factory?

    Flat Fret Board or Radius

    On such a small instrument, what advantage is there in having a radiused fretboard?

    UAS Cured---Enjoying Uke Much More

    I don't drink, smoke, or live ostentatiously. Ukes are so relatively small and cheap, that I don't get hung up by UAS, or any other angst, due to owning a few of them.
