"I lost the paper that came with mine while moving, but I believe the operating voltage is 9V to 12V. Use 2 9volt batteries in parallel for longer use or a 9volt Walwart with a high milliamp rating(800ma or higher). Walwarts can sometimes cause RF…"

"Usually that is caused by string height. The higher it is, when you hold down at fret 12 you pull it sharp. "

Hi Bizzaro...For my Tenor Ukes with steel strings, I use Electric guitar strings: Low G=26W, C=17, E=12, A=10.  The string anchor point should be as short/close to the bridge as possible, no more than 2 inchs, because the total length of the string has a lot to do with way the string vibrates even though it is terminated by the bridge and nut.  Having a sharp angle on the string at the bridge and nut is also very important.  I always use a neck through for my steel string ukes.

Hi there.

Thanks for the friend request. I must say how much I like your skull guitar. Very striking instrument. You're obviously getting stuck in to this stuff. Look forward to seeing more from you very soon.

All the best.

John
