  • Stagg Electric Uke Hack : Fitting a pickup to a cheap uke
  • Ukulele Rescue: Fixing a crack howto - Koa sound box and cedar neck Pete Howlett kit

    Repair a simple cracked open seam with hot hide glue using percussion technique. Will work for any wooden string instrument. And, yes, I misspoke and should have said "the two halves of the top" or more correctly "the two halves of the back" ...in any event: it made a sickening noise when it suddenly started to crack apart shortly after I rested it on a shelf. It was a new instrument and was probably constructed in a high-humidity shop somewhere in the tropics.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
