    Another one should be arriving shortly.

    I thought my UAS was over, but then I found a Lani LB70 spruce top bari being sold off for just 48!

    Obviously, I ordered one, (original price was 120).

    Lani Ukes are OK. I had a couple though I rehomed them. Nothing wrong with them, well made and good value for money, just that I was downsizing and had others I liked better.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    That's good to know that you thought them OK.

    I had been thinking of getting a laminate to go with my Kala cedar top, as I'm very 'careful' with it - & this one should take the worry away about playing & using this size of uke.

    I decided to order the electroacoustic baritone LB55. 58 down from 145 looks like an excellent deal. I also ordered a hard shell case at half price, cheaper than the heavily padded gig bags I normally use. I've been enjoying the tone of some of the baris that I have heard on recent seasons vids so decided this was a good chance to go for one.

    Good for you.

    Yes, the bari has a rather distinctive sound compared with other ukes, & not only it's tuning, a more fuller sound, I think.

    Just arrived, checked over, tuned, & played with - came with a dust cover & tuner included - but, with high D - don't think that will stay.

    It has some minor marks on the top, a smallish ding in the back of the neck high up the fretboard, & a bit of glue by the binding.
    No sharp frets edges, & string height seem to be OK, scale length seems to be just over 19.5".

    All in all, I reckon it's a bargain!

    Mine arrived this afternoon. It has Aquila low D strings, two wound, two plain. Overall looks in perfect condition no blemishes. It's laminate but not overthick and sounds good - plenty of volume. I tested the pickup system briefly with my Vox mini5 Amp and it worked OK. I'll test it on my proper PA amp later and get a better feel for the tone. It came with a dust cover but I ordered a hard shell case at the same time. That's not arrived yet but hopefully won't be too long as it was on the invoice in the uke. Too large to play without a strap. I was expecting the socket for the pickup to have a strap button but it's on the bottom of the body so I've had to order some strap buttons.

    Overall definitely a bargain at the price.

    I'm finding the sound pretty good on mine, & haven't changed the strings, in fact, I think as long as I've got a low G for finger picking, I'm happy.

    My clumsy hands can only treat a bariuke......just love the sound.And so easy to play for a guitarist. So I hope I'll never win a smaller uke in any contest. I'd have to reject my prize.

    I was not that bothered about a Bari but then I had super offer pointed out to me so went for it. I really like it. Great for finger picking. I still like my little ones as well
