Friday Links: Useless tips and Weird Ukes

Petey Forrest’s completely useless ukulele tips: play the same note on all strings, dead G string wah-wah and Zombie Slides.

Window Shopping

Hoffman ML style cedar/cocobolo tenor.
1930s heart-shaped Dayton.
Fanned-fret Kukamae i.e. the bridge, nut and all the frets are diagonal. I’m a bit suspicious of the supposed advantages of this but it certainly looks cool.
Hive Hornet tenor.
– Weird and possibly unplayable Asuka ukulele.
– The translation wasn’t much help identifying this ukulele.

    I’m pretty sure the uke in that last link is from Cat Rock, a shop in western Tokyo that also makes its own “Gill” series. It has the same style and fretboard marks.

    Keith: Thanks very much! Might well be it.

Got something to say?
