Hello,

More curiosity than anything - wondering if anyone in the UK has an LFDM ukulele?

I did some basic detective work & I'm pretty sure George is in the UK and he is also a member hear! :D

Itíll be harder and harder to get an LfDM since they only use The Ukulele Site to sell them - exclusively. Unless you live in Canada. I donít live in the UK but I own one and happy to answer any questions.

I own two lfdm. Both are tenor!
Luis ( lfdm ) will be at my house this coming Saturday
Would you like me to relate a message?

Yes, I think George (TheBlackEgg) is in the UK and has one, or has had one. Another member of this forum from the UK is Andrew (Elliottauk) who used to own an LFdM, but he might have sold it a couple of years ago. If you're looking for owners in Europe in general, I have one that I got from the Ukulele Site about five years ago, and there is another forum member from Italy named Gildo who had one but wanted to sell or trade it last fall. I love mine, cuts through like an electric guitar in lead playing, not like any other ukulele I have owned.

I own three, a tenor, a 19" super tenor and a baritone but I don't live in England. I am not sure if you were looking to demo one and that is why you were asking about England. Feel free to ask any questions, I will be attending Solorules party as well. Not too late for you to hop on a plane for Canada and attend. Gotta ask Solorule first ;)

If you are trying to find one in England why not give Duke of Uke in London or Souther Uke in Bournemouth a call and see if they can help.

Alternatively if you are after a custom made Uke then there are plenty of Luthiers around.

I go to a couple of Guitar shows and the luthiers there on display produce outstanding instruments

Thanks for all the responses! I really want to try an LFDM tenor. I've actually met George but haven't seen him online for quite a while.

Not interested in commissioning a custom tenor but I might give southern ukulele a call. Just wanted to put some feelers out here first.

If anyone in UK or Europe is looking to move an LFDM on send me a message... Might be able to buy or trade...

Is it true that is has a very guitar like quality / sound to it?

I want in on this party! But alas there is an ocean and work in the way (got to work to fund the ukes and pets :-P)

The sound is guitar like. First off Luis designed them for low G and to be resonant and full sounding with good sustain and projection. This is guitar like to me where a typical uke sound is more punchy with a quicker note decay. There are lots of tenor ukes out there with a guitar like tone, including all of the ones in my signature below.

I've watched your videos with great interest, these are very special ukuleles :D Are you the only Ifdm owner that records videos? I've looked for others at the YouTube but can't seem to find any.

Hi thank you for watching
If you look at the ukulele site demo Corey Fujimoto has done many demonstrations whenever they received a batch of newly built lfdm Ukuleles


Check out the Hawaii music supply Vimeo channel.

Thanks you both for this information, I'll go to Vimeo :D and I hope you have a great ukulele party on Saturday! :D

Follow Timmy_uke75 on Instagram. He has an LfDM that I gave him and he has many sound samples.
