    Can anyone tell me what the dots on the fret board are for?

    It's the intervals in the scale. C=1=I F=4=IV G=5=V for a C major scale. For a G major scale it would be G,C,D. I IV V is a common chord progression. Lots of chord/scale info here:

    Review Martin 1T IZ

    IZ is my "go to" uke when I just want to play. I just got a 50s era Martin Soprano so that's getting attention at the moment. I put a Fremont Blackline low G on IZ as I prefer linear tuning on my ukes except for my Sopranos which I keep reentrant. This string is fitting in well with the Martin...

    Dipping my toes in the Vintage pond.

    It's here! Got a few dings and one previous owner put his name on the inside back (look in the soundhole). It is in great shape as advertised. I brought it up to pitch and just played it for a few minutes. I'm going to let it sit overnight and play it some more tomorrow. Light as a feather and...

    Review Martin 1T IZ

    This is my first Martin uke (I own 2 Martin guitars). The fit and finish are superb, which I expected. The uke is easy to play and the tone is inspiring. It came strung with Martin Polygut M625 gray strings. I've added a Fremont Black line low G string as I prefer low G on all my non-soprano...

    Beginner Looking for beginner and intermediate ukulele buying guide

    Ohana makes a wide range of ukes. I'd contact MIM (largest Ohana dealer) and ask for her recommendation. She will do a great setup before it ships out. If you up the top end to $300 you can get some nice solid wood instruments.

    Instrument cable jack and side binding.

    Install complete. This is a KALA KA-B baritone uke. I'm running it into a ZOOM A1 four then into a Fender Rumble 15 bass amp. So far I'm very happy with this piezo.

    Instrument cable jack and side binding.

    I'm going to add a piezo pickup to my KALA KA-B baritone uke. The cable jack is supposed to go where the end pin strap jack is located. I have to drill a 1/2" hole which is wider than the binding between the two sides of the body. Are there any issues with doing this? I don't want the binding...

    Dipping my toes in the Vintage pond.

    Today I ordered a 1950s style O Martin. It's described as being in great condition with only some cosmetic scratches and no functional issues. I should have it late next week. 30 day trial so if I don't bond with it it goes back but I'm expecting good things. :D

    Low G string for my Martin 1T IZ tenor.

    I would like your opinion for a low G string to replace the high g that came with the M625 set on my Martin IZ Tenor. No Aquila red and no wound strings please. Thanks! Mike

    Black strings users ... anyone?

    The Fremont blacklines really get lost on this one! Now that they're broken in I like everything about them. I think I have a new favorite.

    Your choice for baritone strings (DGBE) with no wound strings.

    I have a KALA KA-B and would like to get rid of the Aquila Nylgut strings for a set of some other brand that has no wound strings. I see that Oasis and Worth have sets that meet that criteria. Your pick of these or something else?
