    Have not found the need to add additional tension hooks on any of the Duke models, and have had them all. Like any banjo-like instrument, maintaining proper head tension is oaramount to best sound quality.

    Interestingly, I put a Tone-Gard ( on my Duke 10 and love it. The standard Tone-Gard (mandolin model) fits the Duke 10 perfectly. The result is IMHO a richer sound and better volume (as if a banko uke needs more volume!).

    Ukuleles: Martin T1K (T), Oscar Schmidt OU28T (T8), Lanikai LU-6 (T6), Lanikai LU-22T (T), RISA Solid (C), Effin UkeStart (C), Flea (S)
    Banjo-Ukes: Duke 10 (T), Lanikai LB6-S (S)
    Tenor Guitars: Martin TEN515, Blueridge BR-40T
    Tenor Banjo: Deering Goodtime 17-Fret
    Mandolin: Burgess (#7)

    Ukuleles, Guitars & Banjo tuned CGDA, Mandolin tuned GDAE

    The inventory is always in some flux, but that's part of the fun.

    I must confess....I did already mess with this uke. I didn't like the paint on the neck, so I sanded it all off. It plays easier (for me) now. I guess I'm just a fiddly kinda gal...
    I wonder if the tone guard would give my wooden ukes more volume? Hmmmmm.
