Here is a quirky video piece from steffhw detailing several techniques for diagnosing ukulele setup and intonation problems on a budget ukulele.
Although the audio is in a language I don’t understand, I think the video imagery and English text inserts give a useful view of the techniques used to diagnose setup and intonation problems with your budget ukulele, including: Checking the ukulele intonation and action height at the first fret, checking intonation throughout the octaves and touches on the action height at the 12th fret of the ukulele.
This video helped me to understand how and why the action height can affect the intonation of the ukulele and why good intonation is important. The video also mentions the “therapy” needed to resolve these problems “Ukulele Problem Therapy – Ukulele Intonation Video 2” (which I will also be posting about in the near future).
