    Pono Classic or Romero Creation super tenor?

    I hope you can help me with a decision. I fall in love with the sound of this GRAND TENOR by Romero Creation. Its $899U.S. I like the rich guitar sound. I did not have the privilege to try it out when I was at HMS so I have no idea how 'heavy' (in weight) this is comparing to the PONO that I...

    Uku Shape Advice

    Our music stores have very limited uku selection so I don't have the privilege of ' in person' experience. Since I play only fingering style and tend to hold my uku up like a classical guitar. My tenor and concert are both sliding all over if I don't have a strap. I really don't like strap...

    String Buzzing mystery

    This Kala solid uku was in good condition until I changed to the red Aquila strings. 'A ' string started to buzz. I finally changed to Oasis strings, it seems to fix the A then a week later the E started to buzz. I put it back in the case with the humidifier inserted, wait an hour the buzzing...

    Have any one play one of these plastic?

    My daughter (who is NOT a kid) insisted on buying one of these to take to our upcoming vacation. I told her not to buy garbage but it's sound like a real uku with gear turner. Take a look.

    Andrew Kitakis: Thank you for your Web Site

    After all that Andrew has done, I would feel very guilty shopping anywhere else. Just wish I have tried more uku while I was there so that I know which one to order next. A uku a year is a must if you can afford it. :-)

    Which Uku sounds the closest to a guitar?

    I am just curious which brand made the most guitar sounding uku? I realize low G , type of strings, body size ,type of wood etc contribute to the sound. Many of you owned and played with different brand of uku, just thought you can satisfy my curiously. Thanks
