Does anyone have a ukulin? and if so can they play it? I bought one on ebay awhile back and have never really messed with it. Anyone?

Thank God for Youtube. Someone actually "playing" one.

HIT IT, MAESTRO Zach Condon of the band Beirut playing a marxoline. Thatís a ukelin on his lap and another next to it. At the back of the couch is a phonofiddle

It's a phono fiddle. If you want one (and you have four and half grand spare) MGM has one for sale (http://cgi.ebay.com/Rare-A-T-Howsen-Ukulele-model-PHONO-FIDDLE-Mint_W0QQitemZ250318640862QQihZ015QQcategoryZ16224 QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262).
