While taking my twins into the shop for a little check-up my friend at the shop, Nao, told me they had an excellent new Kamaka soprano that just arrived. Knowing that I had spent the previous year visiting every shop in Tokyo to find my twins (one of which was bought at the shop I was at) she hadn't put the uke on the floor yet. I opened the case and first noticed that it had lovely wood with a decent amount of curl. I picked her up and started playing. After about 30 minutes I decided that she was better than my number 2. I bought her and took her home. That was two months ago. Now she is the only uke I own! Within the first two weeks I ended up selling my number two to a friend at a shop downtown. Last week I sold my old number 1 to Nao who had been lusting after her for months. I think I have finally found my perfect Kamaka. Now I just have to find my perfect Martin style and I will be all set... really hoping to come across a Timms here at some point.

Anyways, now for some pics.
