Summer NAMM 2010, Kala Ukulele Amp: Window Shopping

I’m a big enough man to admit this. I was wrong and Noel Edmonds was right. Last week I cosmically ordered a Koaloha Sceptre. This week my dealer of choice put up a Sceptre for the first time. I shall never doubt the Edmonds again. He is my new Jesus.

Summer NAMM 2010 was last week. There doesn’t seem to be as much uke buzz coming out of it as the winter event. The one thing that caught my eye was the Kala Roundabout Ukulele Amp. I’ll take one in hot pink, The Cosmos. Ukeeku has a good write up of the event.

A few DeVine Ukuleles up this week from guitar and uke maker Eric DeVine. He has an impressive client list including Jack Johnson, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready, and Kimo Hussey.

    Al,
    that was one of the funniest two word emails I have ever received. Hope you love it as much as I did for the two minutes before putting in the case.

    A sceptre? Oh, well done that man. The sceptre is a mighty hatchet! I approve.

    Don’t know if you’ve mentioned it or not, but
    Flea Market Music is now selling the FlukeSB
    solid body electric, and two sizes of an acoustic
    amp.

    Well done on the Sceptre, I adore them but I can’t really justify the money, fair play to you.

    Luapelele: Thanks for getting in touch with me about it. Can’t wait to get my mitts on it.

    Ian: Glad you approve.

    Ron: Thanks. I hadn’t seen them. Interesting.

    LyleSpruce: I’m not sure I can either. But…

    krabbers: Can’t beat Marshall for amps.

    Hijack

    Does anybody have any other other suggestions for AMP’s, should be getting a Kala Archtop in the next few weeks, want to know what to pair it with?

    Thanks

    I’m curious as to how much the little round amps will be selling for.

  9. Woodshed June 28th, 2010 10:16 pm

    Mike: I think you’ll have more joy asking in one of the forums. Don’t use an amp myself.

    Hobbit: You and me both.

    Thanks for turning me on to Noel Edmonds’ app! But he says not to get too specific? Because I’d really like a black Gibson.

    Jodi: I think you must be the first person every grateful for being turned on to Noel Edmonds.

Got something to say?
