Ice Cream, Cracked Ukulele, and String Tension
What flavor Ice String do you prefer? Is it Mint, Chocolate, Mango, D'Addario's, Aquila's or Ghs? In this week's podcast, the team discusses Ice Cream Preferences and String Preferences. At the top of the podcast, a member asks the guys for advice regarding a crack in his ukulele. Should he ignore it, fix it himself, or hire a luthier? Other members ask if it's ok to use smaller strings in larger grooves? This week's packed with technical questions; someone else asks if he should be worried about his string's high tension? This leads the guys to talk about professional player's signature string sets. Aldrine gives fingerpicking feedback on a Student's Review. The question of what humidifiers do you use, and what humidity is too low for the ukulele are tackled next. The podcast ends with announcements on the next UU Open Mic, an upcoming guest for the podcast, podcast intros, and the newest UU+ Solos.
