Ukulele Window Shopping

Jake Wildwood has a sale on for his vintage instruments. A few ukuleles available but my favourites are the Bantam guitar and the 6-string balalaika. Some wild grain action on this Kanilea 3D curly koa. Speaking of Kanilea, their new Islander budget range has been picking up some good reports. 1939 UB01 Gibson. Lyon & […]

Lanikai Tuna Uke: Ukulele Window Shopping

Lanikai have come up with Tuna Ukes as a way of improving the intonation of ukuleles. They have little slidey-doos on the bridge you can adjust. Take a look at Music Guy Mike showing one off at NAMM. I can see them causing more problems than they solve though. One of these days I’m going […]

NAMM 2012: Ukulele Window Shopping

This weekend is NAMM (the orgy of musical instrument makers) and this year the CEO of NAMM is putting his money on ukuleles. Follow the action on Ukeeku including Mahalo’s attempt at making a ukulele worse than the flying V and whatever the hell this is. The big curiosity on eBay at the moment is […]

Best Things from 2011 to Spend Money On

I’ve only bought one ukulele this year (my aNueNue harp ukulele) and I haven’t entirely formed my opinion on that yet. But there’s other stuff I’ve bought this year (or wangled for free) that has been well worth the money. Music The ukulele albums I’ve listened to most this year are: Givers – In Light […]

aNueNue Harp Uke: Ukulele Window Shopping

I’ve got my hands on a new ukulele! It’s an aNueNue harp ukulele. I’m still getting to grips with it but I’ve done a couple of videos with it: Here Comes the Sun and Albatross. I’ll be doing a review of it next year but you can read Tim’s thoughts right now. Two sweet looking […]

Ukulele Window Shopping

After being on the wagon for a while, I’ve given in to UAS this week and got myself a Christmas present. 10 internets to anyone who guess what I’ve bought. Mr Kazookeylele is selling a genuine Kazookeylele. aNueNue are continuing with their signature ukes with an electric ukulele styled after, Canadian uke rockers, Lucky Uke. […]

National #001: Ukulele Window Shopping

National Style 1 ukulele prototype. It’s the first of the new line of National ukes, numbered 001 given to the guy who provided his triolion for examination. In the war of the guiatar lookalikes I think the cutest are the Tomo Strat and Les Paul. In a similarly guitar-like vein is this electric Tiki Idol […]

Tangi Violin Uke: Ukulele Window Shopping

Beansprout and Mya-Moe hook up to make a banjo ukulele. Uker of OZ banjolele. Lightnin’ Bug resonator. Felix the Cat ukulele (via Ukulelia). I feel the need to […]

Martin Ukes: Ukulele Window Shopping

A bumper crop of Martins this week: – Martin 5K – 30’s 2M – Martin Style 3 (I think this is the one I’d go for) – 1932 Martin 2K And this one covered in beads. I’m not sure how it could play, “like a million dollars,” and sound, “fantastic,” with all that stuff on […]
