    Default 18 month olds are jerks

    My son just dropped my outdoor uke from the couch and this happened outdooruke.jpg Well out of warranty. Any ideas on a fix?

    Even though it’s out of warrantee contact Outdoor and see what they recommend.

    Can’t see too clearly, but if that’s a clean separation at the joint you should be able to clean it off, add epoxy, and clamp it till it cures. Should be pretty straightforward and easier than selling the kid to fund a replacement

    Loosen the strings also! If you ever wanted to paint the inside to give it a tint, now seems like a good time!

    Super glue.......

    Likely not an uke built yet that can withstand the efforts of an 18month old to have some fun with it......


    But you should have seen when my 4 year old got his first violin and how he cared for it......


    A lot of growth in short amount of time......

    I did email them waiting to hear back. It is just a super clean separation. Hubby wanted to do the epoxy and clamp so sounds like that is a winner but I wouldn't trust his opinion alone. He can fix bikes well, instruments remains to be seen.

    Strings are loosened! I only tightened them back for the picture. I always thought it could use some lights inside. . .

    Now’s a good time to put a little notch along one end (the part that does not touch your strumming arm) and run a string along the back side of your uke. We did and ran a strip along the crown molding around The ceiling of my daughters’s rooms.

    it attaches with double sided tape. You could run it along the back of your uke. Then you can control the colors. Feel like blue? Or green? Or purple? The line that attaches to a plug to change colors detaches so you can just go unplugged. When you want lights plug it into the battery pack. How fun!
