Ukulele/Uke player - Jon Prown
I play four main instruments. The first two are tuned to re-entrant high G, the next to re-entrant FCEA, and the last to low G:
1) KoaWorks 22 fret tenor (neck joined at the 14th fret) with koa top, sides and back, mahogany neck, and Worth Clear Extra Hard Tension strings. My workhorse uke--fast neck with great action.
2) Dominator mahogany tenor (neck joined at 12th fret) strung with Worth Clear Extra Hard Tension strings. An amazingly loud and tonally clear uke built by a very close friend. Priceless.
3) Talsma custom-made 17 fret tenor (neck joined at 12th fret) with spruce top,koa sides and back, mahogany neck, and Worth Clear Extra Hard Tension strings. Warm and sweet sound--great for mellower fingerstyle tunes.
4) Pono cedar top tenor with mahogany back, sides, and neck (neck joined at 14th fret), Worth Clear Extra Hard Tension Low G strings. Big thanks to John Kitakas of Ko'olau Guitars and Ukes for helping set me up with this great instrument.
I record directly into a Sony PCM D1 Portable Digital Recorder--a rather expensive but very easy to use unit that has two high quality condenser mics set in an X-Y pattern and records WAV files--and then master with Ozone 3 software.
