I seem to remember that they sound awful. But they're cute.

yeah.. i am going to listen to a sound sample when i get home.. the apple one just looks cool.. i had an idea to get an all white ukulele and get a black apple sticker to put on it..

ummm i do love apple.. the computer and the fruit ..

I've got my eye on that deluxe Three Stooges lunchalele (http://www.boxaleleco.com/stooges.html), myself. Unfortunately, I'm spending my money on that Mainland mahogany concert next month.

If only Deach saw fit to bestow upon me the gift of being deached... [/pipedream]

I think the sound quality really depends on whether your lunch is still inside while you're playing - and the type of strings of course.

Put on some Aquilas, they make everything sound better, even an old rooster in the morning.

If they don't they'll make you one, you provide the lunch box:

Oh goodness, I was thinking of trying to make an Altoids ukulele, but now..... choices, choices...

Here are a couple of pictures of the Godiva Chocolate Tin Uke I made my son last Christmas. The acoustic sound is a bit tinny, but with the piezo pickup you can get a decent sound out of it.

Looks like something that one of the "cigar box" uke guys started.
