    Uke Tech Support Hipshot Tuners - where's the love?

    Very cool to hear your positive experience with the Hipshot tuners. My brother, a electric guitar builder, is making me an electric solid body tenor uke for me and he recommended the hipshot tuners to me saying they were top notch and his choice for the uke build.

    Uke Tech Support String stuck inside string-through bridge

    Today when I wanted to swap out the G string on my Klos ukulele, I found that the string was struck in the string-through bridge. The string has been loosened from the headstock however it can not be fed down into the body through the bridge. It seems jammed right inside the wooden bridge...

    External Pickup ideas for covid uke jam.

    Its been a long time since I have actually played my uke in the presence and along with another uke player (well, make that close to one year ago, in fact). In the meantime I sold off my tenor that had its K&K pickup which I used to plug into my little lunchbox size amp. Now a pal and I are...

    Who else owns a Maui Music uke?

    I recently purchased a 14 year old Maui Music tenor from someone right here in UU. This Peter Lieberman build has some lovely koa and sounds as sweet and warm as it looks. I’m looking forward to some good long satisfying sessions with this instrument. The hand made qualities, though subtle, are...

    Tenor WTB: Koaloha koa tenor with pickup

    I'm looking for a Koaloha koa tenor with a pickup or, for that matter, without a pickup would be fine too. If you've got one to sell please email me at: windchaser333ATgmailDOTcom and/or reply here (but don't PM me because for some reason the PM's on this forum aren't working reliably for me).

    Why friction tuners?

    Specifically, why does Koaloha still use friction tuners on their concert ukes? I have a nice mango tenor Koaloha with geared tuners so, when eyeing up the possibility of adding a concert Koaloha to the herd, was surprised to see the friction tuners on that model.

    Beginner beginning my wait for a SynergyInstruments.com full Carbon Fiber Concert

    There are some real similarities here with the early prototype Synergy uke I bought (and then returned). The fret ends were sharp, there was a buzz on a couple strings and overall the finish was marginal. I have been interested to follow the threads describing first hand experiences now that...
