Aloha friends,

This club is for all the Honu lovers in the underground, although I think that there aren't so many Honu players.

I thought we could use CoffeeMates Honu social group (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/group.php?groupid=43) as the groups HQ! :D

I've got a Honu traditional tenor (http://www.flickr.com/photos/apfelkuch3n/sets/72157618913089263/) and I'm totally in love with her. I'm already thinking about a name for her :3

And I want to get her signed by Jake and Aldrine. Someday I'll visit Hawai'i ♥


I can't wait to see your Honus and to read your stories about them.

Mahalo,
Lou

Looks like I'm the only one who's in love with his Honu.

I also play a honu. It's a concert rope series, and I really enjoy it. You can see pics of it in the Honu social group.

Question for you Honu owners: I have Aquila strings on mine, but I am curious about the sound of Worths on a Honu. Are any of you playing your Honu with Worth strings?

Your Honu looks lovely ♥

I'm not sure how Worth strings perform on a Honu but you could ask MGM, maybe he'll try it for you.

I've had my Honu XXX concert for 2 years now. But I'm probably going to be parting with it soon. I've got too many ukes so it doesn't get played hardly ever. Great uke though. Well worth the money.

Regarding the strings, Worth CD's are far and away my favorite strings on the Honu. For me, the Worth CD's took the uke to another level compared to the Aquilas it had came with.

Sad to hear that you're breaking up with her.

I like the Pro Art&#233; on my Honu <3

The Aquila strings are too bright for me.

For all of you Honu lovers...here is THE most gorgeous Honu I have ever seen...and the fact that MGM is selling it should say something!!!

Already saw her, she is nice looking. But I think the top is a little bit too dark ^^

Really? I think that looks real smaHht! The first shot has one spot of direct light while the rest seems not to have it. I bet that koa does amazing things depending on the light shone on it.

There are plenty of awesome Ukes I'd like to buy, but there is only one I'd really fallen for. The Kamaka HF-3 but it's so freakin' expensive and I couldn't get one here in Germany so I got a Honu trad. Tenor :D
