    Same story, different strummer! I've got to clean up my shelves to make room for the next acquisitions. So I'm selling a handful of ukes that for the most part are similar to other ukes I have that I play more often. All include shipping to CONUS but Paypal G&S fees would be extra. No...

    KraftGeek Music Stand

    Great design... ALMOST perfect. I use an iPad (largest size) on my stand 98% of the time, and I've seen several iPads hit the floor after a typical music stand got bumped. If they had just put some kind of attachment, similar to what they did for the music sheet holder, on the bottom and the...

    Lanikai ukulele with ZERO kerfing inside the body ?!

    To me that says the lam sides must be pretty thick to allow enough glue on the edges.

    Remember When You Were First Starting To Play An Instrument...

    3 things that I teach my beginners strummers to "Never Do" 1) Never lay your uke on the floor 2) Never lay your uke on a chair / couch (stand it upright) 3) Never put it in it's case / gig bag without snapping 1 latch on the case or zipping it far enough that it won't fall open. Yes, the voice...

    It Ain't A Ukulele, But It'll Have One In It!

    Oh, misread. I thought the hooks were to be installed in the guitar sized display case to hold a pair of ukes. Are they making you a uke sized case? FYI because there's a window in my room where the cases are mounted I opted for the UV glass. Probably overkill but my Chuck Moore hangs in one...

    What’s become of the Revelator

    Great points Pete. My guess is that many who think the Revelator is priced too high have never played one. It's one of the cleanest, fullest and most "fun to play" ukes I own. The thin body is just a pleasure to hold and play and it's without sacrificing voice and volume! The design is...

    Boveda Packs

    In a humid climate (above 50%) they should dehumidify until they are totally saturated. Not many of us here have that problem, we are trying to keep our ukes humidified. When used to humidify, you are correct that they get dried out and stiff as their humidity gets used up. Not sure they last...

    It Ain't A Ukulele, But It'll Have One In It!

    That's a beauty! Yes, so easy to grab a uke, hook the door back up and keep the humidity inside. Lots more room in the rectangular shaped case than mine. A tenor and a concert are a tight fit but work. Wait, you said this was for your 5K Martin, then you said T1K and TBD uke...

    Instrument - String Break In?

    Great summary Kenn2018 on 2 topics for which there are lots of opinions. Bottom line is both strings and ukes change over time, and with the myriad of materials and constructions it's almost impossible to make blanket statements about how much or how long. But there's a reason old Martins...
