Oceana, Unis: Ukulele Window Shopping

This week’s iwanit, iwanit, iwanit is this 8 string tenor uke> from Oceana. The Oceana concert looks pretty fine as well.

Unis are a new name to me but this ukulelelooks a whole lot like a Kumalae.

    I’ve been thinking about 8 stringers ever since seeing nomipyon playing one on the Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence post, they do sound fantastic.

    …Me too…I do need 8 strings in my life…Mmmm that oceana is very very special…I’ve been toying wth the idea of a Lanikai ULU8 8 String Tenor…as it’s just about in the upper end of affordability for me…Any one got any experience of them?…

    John and Nick: They are very tempting. Don’t have any experience with the ULU8 though.

    I’ve got a Lanakai 8-string tenor. It is very sweet. I bit more trouble to tune it though. But a nice instrument.

Got something to say?
