    Re: F style Ukulele ?

    Just received these photos
    I'm looking forward to playing this unique instrument.
    When I receive it I'll spend some time with it and give an honest review.

  2. Re: Nylon GDAE tuning for an 8 string Baritone Ukulele

    I use nylon guitar strings to get CGDA on my baritone Uke (same scale as yours).

    I never tried GDAE but I think it's possible.

    These have a high tension and feel great.

    Re: F style Ukulele ?

    Still waiting for my F Style Baritone Uke. Almost two months now.

    It's behind schedule, but there is a world wide pandemic going on after all.
    Hard to complain.

    I asked Bruce to send me some...

    Re: Another source for Backup Tracks

    2nd thumbs up for Strum Machine.

    Re: Hora Octave ?

    (subbed)
    The mandola tuners are terrible also. I think they are the same hardware.

    I replaced my bridge and it made a difference.

    It's not a bad instrument.

    Re: Shelter-in-place (NMC)

    Surprisingly (to me) I'm practicing a lot. Mostly while watching Star Trek Voyager.

    Man that Janeway was a bad a**!

    Then I eat a lot.

    My neighborhood has a "Last Man On Earth" vibe to it so...

    Re: I Miss Playing Live!

    Before the virus out break the weather was pretty nice here in NYC.
    And I was able to get a few unexpected days of busking in Central Park in.

    Now with the strict lock down I won't even try it....

    Re: Practicing Bach during the lockdown

    Beautiful.

    I'm splitting my time between the Bach Prelude and a Vivaldi movement.

    Anything to silence the TV.

    Re: Feeling Octave Mando

    I have a Feeling Mando guitar (F style 6 string).
    It's well made for a cheap instrument. The wood is pretty good.
    It sounds acceptable, no more than that.

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Viola to mandolin or mandola

    My experience in community orchestras (as a cellist) is that the viola is a much sought after instrument in
    group playing.

    We never had more than two or three players in that section, (sometimes...

    Re: F style Ukulele ?

    Bruce Wei sent me this for approval.
    Not much info there other than basic dimensions and woods.
    19" scale is making me happy. My current baritone is 20.5" and just a little uncomfortable for me....

    Re: Pickup or microphone?

    I use a John Pearse transducer with a Behringer ADI 21 (or even just a simple EQ pedal).

    It's an inexpensive solution and the amplified sound is pretty accurate IMO.

    Re: F style Ukulele ?

    Just "pulled the trigger" on a custom (no inlay) F Style Baritone.

    It's more than I wanted to spend but a got a good feeling about this guy.

    Re: F style Ukulele ?

    I'm in touch with Bruce Wei and he will send me a quote for a baritone F model (custom order).

    But looking at the Tenor specs, it's really got mandola proportions.

    F style Ukulele ?

    I've been messing around with a baritone ukulele (tuned CGDA w/ nylon guitar strings) for about a year now. It's a pleasure to play and sounds very unique.
