On his set, James played three ukes, a signature tenor built by Berkeley, California maker Mike DaSilva and two baritones made by Mya-Moe, of White Salmon, Washington. One baritone is tuned standard (capoed at the second fret), while the other one is tuned to a unique tuning that James developed. The second baritone is tuned B E B E, with the two B strings tuned in unison.
