aNueNue Harp Ukulele: Window Shopping

Plenty of ukes at NAMM to salivate over but the one that’s got me warming up the credit card is aNueNue’s harp ukulele (designed with Pete Howlett). I got in touch with Johnson from aNueNue for more details:

Tenor Size/Scale
Canadian Sitka Spruce
Khaya Mahogany
Sub-bass side with Pegheds Machinehead
Included a Hardshell case

I have not yet calculate the cost, Price wise I don’t know, it maybe in the USD$900-1000 retail range. They are in production in about 4-6 months.

Hello Kitty ukulele only $1,500. Lucky for us, it’s free to read the description:

Sanrio × [korabo] of VOX becomes in the sound hole and it becomes the ukulele of the specifications not collected valuable and 100 limited in the designed fan…

It plays and ringing improves further it is made of HEADWAY and making and the real thing and the sound are making the first class as musical instruments from the real thing by a crowded thing.

The ‘Ukulele: A Portuguese Gift to Hawaii. I’d love to read that book. But perhaps not at that price.

Celtanowoodworks have been putting out a number of strange ukuleles but this Roc-Em-Soc-Em Robolele is the first to catch my attention.

    Al:

    Welcome back. You were missed.

    Most of “The ‘Ukulele: A Portuguese Gift to Hawaii” consists of photos — there’s not a lot of text. It does give a peek at a few instruments in the rarely seen Leslie Nunes collection, however.

    That’s the uke you would buy, really? You’re gonna have to sell it to me man, ’cause I don’t get it. That thing just looks like it’s undergoing some kind of weird messy metamorphosis as it changes from a ukulele into a guitar via some sort of celtic harpesque intermediate stage. Maybe this is what happens when you make “musical instruments from the real thing by a crowded thing.” That would explain it!

    The Hello Kitty uke does make creative use of the soundhole and other uke makers would be well advised to follow this example. But for that kind of money I want Hello Kitties plastered all over the uke in neon glow-in-the-dark colors. This is not a theme to be exhibited with subtlety, it should be shouted out loud and proud – Hello Kitty!
    The description makes as much sense as some of my comments.

    The Roc-Em-Soc-Em Robolele just plain wins.

    Welcome Back. I almost let my subscription to the internets lapse while you were gone. Hope the whole book thing is on the way to the printer.

    I can get my daily fix.Surfing the ukulele net while you were gone, I felt like a junkie on methadone. Now I got the real thing again. Welcome back Al!

    Jim: Thanks very much for the info. I’ll give the book a miss for now.

    George: Strings are tuned CDEFGCEA. It’s for making music ;)

    pepamahina: Yes, I definitely would.

    Ron: aNueNue did a similar thing with their U900 ukuleles. Useful for gimmick ukes but I wouldn’t like to catch on too much.

    Joshua: It’s certainly eye-catching.

    Phredd and Rob: Thanks. It’s good to be back

    R&J: I think it was the whole thing combined that worried me.

    Foinnse: Good to be back. I missed doing it.
