i have tried to make the location a "sort of curve" rather than "exact" position particularly so it can work with the tramps out and in. To be honest there is a huge amount of "suck it and see" with this. Anyway if it all goes wrong we can have a a few days worth of fire wood!
That's the spirit!
I like that your curved base accommodates the furled tramps. The resting place of the Hakas is also somewhat limited by the Aka brace hardware. Any mounting structure should take this into account, if you want the flexibility of sliding them in/out.
On that point how has anyone fixed their hakas with the tramp out. is there anywhere to get a cord round it?
I ditched the tramps, but a few folks on this thread have tried this.
one more question - i have fitted KB's spray skirts and wanted to run the tension line through a pulley on the aka. Has anyone done this? Just a cord round the bungee button and a harken swivel pulley?
Yakass has this feature on one version of his skirts. Others too, I think.
Oh and Nohuhu....you dont have a good ukelele maker near you that you could recommend?
Kamaka is the gold standard. Plenty of newbies are making quality products now though.
I have just started playing and need a decent uke.... not to mention my Tiki mug collection for which I am always on the lookout for interesting finds. http://www.ooga-mooga.com/cgi-bin/all/collection.cgi?mode=gallery&user_id=781
LOL! Hawaiians prefer drinking from a coconut.
But if you do a fly by, we'll hit the local Tiki Bar together.
