Today’s DIY music project was to add a pickup to my Kmise Ukulele. I have an Ibanez I favor for most things, but the Kmise I’ve set up as my go-to Low G uke. I have a Rubin set up at Low G as well, but I just like the overall tone of the Kmise […]Read More Joyo Ukulele Pickup
After that show a few weeks back, I got it in my head that I really needed to find a better way to electrify my low G uke. The obvious answer was to get electronics installed in it, but given I’m in the midst of home repairs, I knew it was going to be a […]Read More DIY: Installing an Ukulele Pickup

And, I sat down to work, once again, on my little Rubin soprano uke. I don’t use this uke often for a number of reasons, but I’ve also really […]Read More Revisiting the Rubin Uke
Due to the existence of a low quality album and the fact I’m apparently getting involved in shows once in a while now, I’ve done some re-thinking and decided to start another blog to separate out the announcement-type stuff so SWSP can return to its roots of being mostly me rambling about music things and […]Read More Brief Update
