Hi All,

Its been a while since people have been writing here, so thought I'd just give people a prod to share what they've been up to lately in the world of ukes.

I've got a couple of all Aus timber ukes on the go at the moment, and am looking forward to wrapping them up soon.

Hey mat

I have started on my kasha tenor

Finished shaping neck and have bent and jointed the sides ready for gluing up. This Uke will be all out of sepele.

Slowly slowly

Cheers

Tim

Hi Tim,

I'm sure you will be impressed by the kasha bracing method - once it's finished at least. I certainly know I will be using it a lot more in the future.

Most enquiries I get are for Kasha braced ukes. I think people like the different look, and they can't get them in shops. Once they hear one they're sold.

Matt.

Matt:
I am impressed with the tone of my Kasha baritone but I can't tell whether it comes from the longer strings or from the Kasha bracing.

My next project is a mando-cello (baritone mandolin). I am considering a second one using Kasha bracing to get a real comparison.

I have to see how working with maple goes before I get fancy.
