Concert Ukulele


Adventures with 'other' instruments...


Hi, I have a magic flea. I think it had aquila strings but had terrible time keeping  in tune so sent it back the and got i think were planetary tuners. They did not charge me for labor which was amazing as i bought it used and told them so. Now am happy with them but over wound one so it is a little more to fuss with.

Would love to get a kala concert at some time. I belong to a club in Bowling Green Ohio but have other obligations so cant go till November this year.

Congrats on your new/used Fluke

Colleen Hailey:

 

I'm not sure what strings are on the Fluke as I bought it on Craigslist and didn't think to ask the seller. I haven't heard of those type of strings before--I might give them a try.

 

Aaaannnnddd I just got my fourth (and hopefully last for a while) ukulele. I wanted to add a soprano to the herd. I got another Kala. It is a mahogany longneck, which means it has a soprano body but a concert length neck. Like most Kalas, it is very pretty.

Hi, I am supposed to meet someone about 1.5 hours away and the pictures look good except the back of dulcimer at booth ends looks somewhat darkened. Is this wear from playing? Is wr walnut and redwood? If that is true than not plywood so should not darken? Little lost here. Been trying to buy a good used ginger for quite a while now.

Thanks Nellie,
