Thread: Uke to Home Theater Amplifier?

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Uke to Home Theater Amplifier?

    I want to electrify my ukulele just for personal pleasure. I am not in a band, nor will ever play for a crowd of thousands. However I want to hook my Uke up to some home audio speakers.

    I have been reading many forums and have come to the conclusion that every option available has pros and cons.

    I do not want to drill into my koa uke for obvious reasons but don't want to have a really cruddy sound.

    I will be plugging this into a home theater amplifier to use with those speakers (remember personal pleasure) but am not sure how. Any suggestions? Price IS an object...

    It sounds like your first task is to find a stick-on pickup or a mic. Search the archives and you'll find plenty about home-made pickups, stick-ons, and mics. As for plugging in to your stereo, here's what I do: http://liveukulele.com/amplifying-yo...stereo-system/. Somebody mentioned that using distortion through a stereo will wreck the tweeters, so just beware.
