    I don't use Facebook. I just went to the Cocobolo Ukuleles website to join the lottery.

    Don't remember seeing this one before. I really like it! You make your own resonator or did you buy and put it in?

    I don't blame you. UU is a lot more fun. Fakebook is a wasteland. I can't stomach Zuckerberg.
    Getting on the website is smart!

    I bought the chrome disk, biscuit, and cone. It's tricky getting the height of the cone right because that determines the action. The biscuit goes on top of the cone, and the saddle goes on top of that.

    Get a resonator. Played softly they sound similar to a regular uke. Played harder, they sound more like a resonator. They are very versatile.

    I tried a Goldtone at McCabe's. It was fairly quiet for a resonator. I have a Luna, which I like, though I think I should have it opened and ensure the rim is level and has some felt. I also have a steel National soprano which plays like a dream, and my custom Bluebird which I love. The Bluebird is much heavier than the National, however, which is surprisingly light.

    80% of the sound comes from the resonator, and the really are precision creations. Since a National cone and biscuit can be had for $60, it would be a mistake to make your own.

    That's interesting. I thought if the winner didn't want it, they would pick someone else. This is a chance for someone to definitely get a Cocobolo.
