    There is a top-5 8-string electric tenor uke review that I've just seen, Del. I just tried to copy and paste the link but it came up as spam.

    Thanks John, Val and Keith - owing to budgetary considerations I might just give the Freshman 8-string a punt! If I do I’ll report back!

    Not sure what the budgie has to do with it Del but I’m sure you know what you’re doing

    That budgie jump was not what I expected it to be... A thousand birds was not enough to keep me up.

    If you can afford, it's worth having both. Unlike Val I love the 6 string but you do need to get used to the idea of high and low A. Mine has a high G string and with the octave A strings, it gives almost a double reentrant effect. I believe some of the Latin American relatives of the ukulele have reentrant tuning with a low fourth string. It's great for strumming and gives a fuller sound. I restrung my 8 string with only the Fourth string in octaves and retuned it DGBE. I've got my eye on an 8 string baritone and if I go for one I'll probably retune the 8 string tenor to Bb.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    My fellow Seasonistas, one of the nice things about being an English teacher in SE Asia is the opportunity to travel to a wide variety of destinations in this corner of the globe with my generous holiday package. I always bring a uke and try to deliver some seasons from these varied places...

    In less than a week, I'm off on my next journey... southwest of Burma quite a ways... about as far south as one can get. On the next journey, I'm off to the Land Down Under, Australia. I'll have a couple long layovers in Melbourne, but the bulk of the time will be Tasmania. Expect a few collaborations with a Seasonista formerly known as Eugene.
