    Strings Kamaka Strings On Other Ukes

    I had the kamaka strings on the martin C1K. Liked it a lot. It didn’t have a long sustain but had a sweet mellow voice to it.

    Your uke playing face

    So.. I have been told I have a frowning face whenever I played. My fingers simply stop playing whenever I tried to force a smile. How do the pros do this, a big smile while running through a maze of crazy fretting. So how about you guys?

    This is a rant and I need to get this out of my system. So the story goes like this, 3 months ago, I put up my Enya M6 tenor up for listing on a local buy/sell online platform. I’m selling it only for the reason that I’m just not a tenor player. I put it up at 40% less (which is 60%) of the...

    I played both nylon and fluorocarbon (M600) stringed ukes daily. I would be able to tell if the M600 is sounding like nylon.
