I believe the correct collective noun for ukulele is "smeck".

"Man, that music store had a whole smeck of ukes!"

Na 'ukulele. (With a kahako over the "a" in Na)

This is the correct answer.

However, I prefer to say a chord of ukuleles..They're made of wood, you play chords, what else do you want?? :D

I think that would be a great collective noun for a group of ukulele players.

"Sorry I'm late! I got stuck behind an 'ohana of ukulele players in the hallway."

It's a collection, which needs documenting, nurturing, enhancing, adding to, improving, and curating.

And I'm a collector, not a spendthrift.

I vote for "smeck" first, "strum" second.

A "gaggle" refers specifically to a flock of geese. Old term.

Herd generally refers to horses and cattle or cattle like species (wildebeast for example), but is in common usage on forums already, so is already accepted.

A "Blast" is a mediocre 500cc standard/sport motorcycle made by Buell, it's laggardly rep has earned it the nickname of "Be-Last".

A "strum" is also very appropriate, natural and logical. It brings up a nice visual. Not as precise though.

I also like a "jam".


Ukisociety's term is too intellectual for many but still wonderful in it's cleverness and in the meaning.

A "Coaloha" for two of them, say two of the same size or from the same maker) is also a knee slapper. ;)


A "smeck" however is hilarious! Also definitely an insider reference and appropriate, and unlikely to ever be used to refer to anything but ukuleles. I vote it as the best term. :shaka:
