    I like the stock strings, but they aren't currently being sold in the US. At some point, a string change will be necessary, & the question was meant for what to do then.

    As far as Kamaka stock strings, I happen to be someone who doesn't like them. But we all have different tastes, & others like them. :-)

    I ordered some Anuenue strings from a UK shop (I forget which one). It took a while for them to make it to the US, but I wanted to have a couple of sets on hand just in case. I really like the Black Water strings. I love my Moon Bird concert, it is perfect for me. I like the thinner depth of the neck, the weight, and the sound is amazing! I can't decide which one is more perfect, the Moon Bird or the Ohta San. Both cause serious distraction from learning to play Baritone, lol!

    So you are who got the Ohta san! It was gone in a minute--before I could get done visiting it. So so envious. And you have the Moon Bird too. Some folks have all the luck.

    My PayPal account says it did happen. LOL.

    I couldn't post pictures that would even come close to the quality on HMS, so for photos and sound sample, that seems like a much better source than me.

    Thanks to the UU member who saw me make an attempt and fail to get the Moon Bird that was in the Marketplace, and offered me the chance to buy this one. That person is enjoying a tenor Moon Bird now, so it wasn't dislike of the Moon Bird that made this one available.

    I watched Kalei's concert on Taiwan yesterday on youtube and was sold on the Moon Bird. Mine is in the capable hands of the good people at HMS in set up as of 10 minutes ago.

    Congratulations! It's definitely a fun ukulele. I hope you enjoy it.

    They do seem to have plenty of ardent fans. Iím one of the few for whom one didnít work. I know of only two others who also didnít take to them. But admittedly we appear to be the exceptions rather than the rule. It could be that they respond better to certain playing styles (eg, a less soft attack) than others.

    I certainly hope that those who are awaiting theirs will be more than satisfied and make wonderful music for many, many, ahem, coming moons. ;-)
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."
