As posted earlier - not really happy with my usually reliable Aquilas on my Bruko slim - they were a bit "too much" for it if you see what I mean (such a light delicate little instrument)
I have some Martin Flouros on order, but then digging inside one of my uke cases I found the set of Ko'Olau golds that I had fitted to my Mainland.
I really wasnt happy with the tuning of them on the mainland, and found them too precise and slippy.
Anyway, whilst I wait for the Martins, I have just popped them on the Bruko. Immediately I know I am on the right track moving away from the Aquilas - whilst I worry about the Ko'Olaus in terms of tuning stability, when in tune on my Bruko, they give a much sweeter tone to this little thing- chiming sound, and as good a volume level as Aquilas (and no booming)
Will leave these on for a while to determine if they suit this, and it was just the Mainland they didnt like. I figure that if I hit the same tuning probs, I put on the Martins - this being the same route I followed on another sweet delicate uke in my collection - the Mainland
