Yes, that Kala flamed Maple is beautiful. It has an abalone rosette which is a nice touch. And the soprano size gives you that cool uke sound. Some of the other ukes sound more like a guitar. When I first got mine, I was impressed at how bell-like the plucked strings were. I felt like I was playing a harp on those tunes.

If you want to try a little melodic ukulele, this is a great free find:

It's in German, but it has a nice range of folk and classical pieces. Their "Home on the Range" is pretty easy for a beginner, along with "Amazing Grace", "Aura Lee" and "Scarborough Fair". "Freude, shoner Gotterfunke" is Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" and "Guten Abend, gute Nacht" is Brahm's lullaby and is a great piece to end the day with.

oooo,oooo, oooo! I'm excited for you! Makes me wanna buy another. The waiting is killer! How great would it be to live close to a music store with ukes. You could go in and play some and choose one or two and take it home the very same day and you wouldn't have to look out the window every time you hear a truck of some sort even though you just ordered it 10 minutes ago.

There's always something special about your first ukulele. This thread made me want to buy another uke, and I ended up buying a KoAloha tenor last night. Beware, UAS will soon become a part of your everyday life! Enjoy.

A Kala with a solid top is a great place to start. Good choice.

Congratulations, and welcome to addiction. :D

:) i love living in Hawaii.... i got bored today, so i hit two or three music stores, looking for an external pickup.... but ended up hanging out for a few hours in each store playing all the ukes.... and when i got my KoAloha, i went one day, took the tour, then went back the next day and bought it...
