    Just discovered this thread! I've been digging me some electric uke for around a year now! Originally had a Risa baby Les Paul. I loved the tone, but found the string spacing at the saddle a bit tight for my taste. Now I have a Monkey Wrench (19" scale) tuned GCEA, and Mann Tenor guitar (21.4" scale) converted to baritone tuning, but tuned up a step to EAC#F#.

    I agree, although this is a thread, more than a Section. I spend time in a photo forum that has 45 different sections! Why???

    I have a Vorson FSUK-1 that cost just $110. 01.jpg
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I am thinking about getting an Amplug 2 bass for my risa stick.

    ‘"Bass’ is modeled on VOX’s classic AC100 bass amp, and expands its potential with a full-range tone that supports today’s bass sounds. A compressor/boost effect provides not just compression but also a thick overdrive sound, giving you the perfect tones for performing in any style. Careful attention has been paid to the sound quality, and a high-quality FET buffer circuit has been used to obtain even greater dynamic range. "

    The FET circuitry for the high impedance piezo output and the rhythm section are attractive.

    Someone want to try to talk me out of it?

    well the thing with electric ukes is, pretty much every piece of equipment applicable to electric guitar applies.
    so it's nothing substantial nor out of the ordinary

    I had the same thought and bought a Vox AP2-BS to use with my acoustic-electric ukes. I don’t regret the purchase; it’s a useful practice tool in the right circumstances.

    many fine electric ukes exhibited here. I had a soprano Risa stick that I regret selling off to be able to afford my brother's electric bass. In two months I will be setting a deadline to buy another electric uke. I have to put it off slightly longer than I thought due to needing to get my young kitty fixed and sending birthday money to my son in Colorado.

    Anyways, here is a photo of my pedal collection so far:

    Is there much noise with it? My AC30 (original version) was somewhat noisy...

    And not too bass-heavy?

    I had. Vorzon LP which buzzed like crazy. It now resides in a landfill.
    I had a tenor Risa LP which I sold (wish that I hadn’t).
    Currently own a Ko’olau CE-1 strung with Worth Clear and Thomas strings. I rarely play it as I usually play acoustic locations. It’s handy for traveling and quiet practicing.

    It can be noisy on certain settings...but if you’re using headphones, you probably aren’t going to crank it too high. The bass response is fine; It seems voiced for headphones or earphones that provide some bass boost and can be a sound trebly through more transparent cans.

    As long as you use passive pickups, it does what it does well enough and is a great way to practice your plugged-in technique.
