I'm not sure how useful this thread will be but I do notice that sometimes there's a flash-flood of "my new ukuelele arrived" threads and although it's very exciting, maybe this will save some space on the boards! So post your thoughts of anticipation waiting for your new instrument in the mail or when it finally comes here!

A whole month!

I'm currently ukuleleless! I returned my Kala KA-S because I bought it for $80 as my "junk" ukulele, but I found an online deal for the Lanikai LU-21 for $45!

I'm waiting for a Lanikai LU-21, which is expected to come on 4/23. But it has to go through my schools mailing system as well so I'll probably get it on the 24th.

I also purchased a Mainland soprano matte mahogany ukulele with sealed gold ebony tuners. It's backordered until May...when in May? I gave Mike a call and he said the matte mahogany soprano is expected to arrive May 10th! So I guess it'll be in my hands around the 20th or so? Mike threw in a free gig bag cause of the wait.

I'm also waiting on a humistat humidifier. :)
Didn't know which humidifier to buy and didn't want to make my own because I don't trust myself... But elderlyinstruments.com "sold me" by saying humistat is the #1 ukulele humidifier. :D

My ukulele journey is just beginning, but luckily I don't think I'll become a victim of UAS. At the same time it has only been day 16. I had to google "UAS" and still it took me a long time to find the definition. I kept getting like University of Alaska Southeast and so on so forth... I finally googled "UAS ukulele" and it all made sense!

UAS = Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome

I've got two customs coming in this week and have forced myself to stay "after class" and write eleventy billion times:

"I will not buy anymore ukes. I will not visit ebay. I will not visit other uke sale sites."

Now my hand looks like this:

So am I... the ukulele shop (http://www.theukuleleshop.co.uk/) is having one repaired for me. I ordered it more than 3 months ago... No I have no idea how I survived this far... Now it should come in one of these days. The first thing I do when I wake up is check my emails to see if it's in. The worst thing is that the British pound () is going up, so every day my Kanile'a is getting pricier... Damn you Economy...

:eek:NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:eek:... the Ukulele Shop (http://www.theukuleleshop.co.uk/index.html) is closing down... I seriously hope they will still await the repaired tenor and let me buy it. If not, I have been waiting nearly four months for nothing:wtf: ... MGM?

I just ordered a lightweight hardshell case from MGM (only $44) in anticipation of ordering a Mainland classic mahogany concert early next month.

The best part is, it'll cost me less than a concert Fluke with a rosewood fretboard. :shaka:

Choboy
04-21-2009, 02:33 PM
lanikai lu-21 came. it's not bad...but leans more towards the toy sounding ukulele. probably cause it was a downgrade from a kala ka-2.
but the mainland comes tomorrow!
congrats me!

Holy sheep dip Batman!!!!!!!!!!!

I just received 2 of 2 customs to come in this week.

The second one (Makani) is unlike anything I have ever heard before!!!!!!!
I won't even start on the craftsmanship and beauty of this thing...ok...guess I kinda did.
Deep, rich, full and sweet....it's like playing a Hula Pie!!!!! :p
It's strung with a low g right now. I like it but am not sure if I am going to stick with it. Some songs and arrangements I have made sound quite different with low g.

The first one (Les Rietfors) is another amazing uke. It's deep and rich and sweet as well....on top of that it is VERY haunting!

With my Pineapple Sunday and these two...ruling the universe is almost complete. :p

What a week!!!!...and it's only Wednesday!
