Does your uke suck? Prove it!

Some guidelines:

-Go for the uke for yourself. If you think your friend need it, have him/her post directly.
-Pictures of your best uke may help.
-Videos of your uke playing could help.
-It may not be a great idea to post a huge essay. If I get bored reading it, it probably won't help.
-I will consider not only what's posted on this thread, but anything I may know about you from this forum is fair game.
-I will make the final decision on who to give it to. If you're interested in the uke, post something to convince me. It's open to everyone.


Deadline - Tuesday, December 15, 2009 9AM EST.

Prize - A "well-loved" solid mahogany Nalu Tenor uke. http://ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19037


Thanks GX9901 for the contest idea!

Hi, my name's Joe, I am 14 and I own a Shanghai Skylark uke made from plywood ("That's laminate!", you say, and I say "No, it's plywood."). The Koaloha review was done by a hacker who stole my account to keep me from entering any ghetto-contests. Pics on my account page have been put there by evil-doers who are trying to make me look like I have a decent uke. Trust me when I say I really need the Nalu. How much do they go for anyway? Just asking, not that I would sell it right away to my girlfriend or anything are you bored reading yet or should no let's leave it at this.

Great contest by the way. I sincerely hope that uke gets a worthy owner.

Ah yes, and let us live by rule 2.

:bowdown: deach, you're awesome! Great contest! I think all I have to say is: "I have a Mahalo U-30 Soprano", but I'll elaborate. I'm pretty sure it's made out of the cheapest laminate known to mankind. No matter what I do, I can never get this sucker to play in tune. I put a ghetto capo (pencil and rubber bands) on the third fret to get a bit more tension. The 11th and 12th frets are dead. I think that's it... Thanks for letting me vent. I've been needing to get this off my chest for some time, now!

Hello Deach,
You must be Santa in disquise. I just can't imagine anyone giving away a purty "well loved" solid mahogany Nalu Tenor uke or being so kind and generous. I'm new to the UU so please be sure to check out my intro here (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22548). My ukulele suck's because I don't own one. Good luck to all of you who enter and I hope you catch the wave. Deach... :rock: You Rock, Brother! :rock:


Life without a ukulele is like a home without a family

Dear Deach,

I believe I deserve to have that "Well-Love" Tenor Uke of yours. As you can see the picture of my junky ukulele above, I don't know what kind of wood it's made from. It's the cheapest ukulele here in our place only $2. Whenever I played that Uke it's goes out of tune most of the time and the fret buzz is horrible. I can no longer play and make a video of that uke 'cause I already gave it to a little kid last week.

Eventhough here in our place we have a lot guitar factories and luthiers. I don't have the money to buy a decent Uke yet. I wish could have a "well-love" Nalu Tenor Solid Mahogany Ukulele like that. I'm gonna play it 24/7, write songs and maybe join open mics here in our place.

Sincerely yours,
Christopher

I have a friend who is not a member here, nor does he even play the ukulele yet. But he was thinking that when he does start playing, he's pretty sure he'd want a tenor. He can't afford one now, and we can't afford to get him one now either.

He's going to be going through something kinda, well, unpleasant (to say the very least) soon (this month), so I wish wish wish that he could win this. I can send you a little more info privately if you want, but maybe this doesn't even constitute a contest entry.

Well, I just thought I'd ask.

Thanks for a great contest--you always rock. You just do.

Awesome contest idea. I'm not eligible because I have 2 Mainlands. I have a Lanikai LU-21...but I still don't think it sucks.

Now, if I had a Mahalo with platinum tuners with diamond encrusted knobs strung with fishing line...and subs mounted in the back...rollin' on dubs. That would be off the heezy fo sheezy. :D

Dear Deach,

I think you of all people will understand what I'm going through right now. It's not that I don't love my uke. She's pretty, she has a decent sound, but... (clearing throat) well... I'll just say it. I've seen her with another musician. He's a member in my band actually. He was out on the back porch with her, strumming in a euphoria, unaware that I was witnessing this whole incident. I think if that's the decision she wants to make... I don't know... but I can't go on like this pretending it's not happening. I'm going to set things straight today, but I'd like this to be more than an end. I'd like it to be a turning point. Can you help me man?

In all seriousness though, I'm a 14 year old kid who has found recreation from this confusing world through a great little instrument. Let me rephrase that though: I NEED MY UKE TO CONTINUE LIVING. It's not a choice. It's almost as bad as my coffee addiction and I feel like I was meant to play this thing. My mom will tell you that I was up 'till about 2:00 am the day I got it and had already learned a few songs the next morning. Music is something that keeps me going (or keeps me up late). I don't know what I'd do without it in my life. I'd like to continue on and, while my current uke is decent, I'd like something that is capable of a little more. I know everyone's saying that they can't afford something like this, and you know what? It's so true! I hope everyone can find a way to find some joy even when it's a little hard to.

Thank you Deach. It's people with kind hearts like you that make this world feel a little closer

hi Deach,
-here's my entry-

ok, my uke is so ghetto...

('How ghetto is it?!', you ask?)

It's so ghetto that I got a custom "g-can" hard shell case for it....




http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/7025/ghettouke1f.jpg


ok, seriously, I started playing about 6 months ago and my first (and still only) uke is a Makala concert - which sounds ok for what it is, mind you - but it's definitely more toward the ghetto end of the scale as far as ukes go! Before this, I hadn't touched an instrument in almost 20 years, but now after playing for these 6+ months, I've really enjoyed it and been having a lot of fun learning to play uke. So I now know that ukulele is definitely for me, and I'm sticking with it and I play mine pretty much every day ever since I got it (even if only for a few minutes! frankly if I do skip a day due to being busy I almost go through some sort of withdrawl - and it is not a good feeling!). Lately I've been waffling between trying to save up money for something a little bit nicer than what I have.... or just being happy with what I have for now and trying improve my playing even though my uke might not be as playable or sound as good as something nicer (and I'm sure like many other UU'ers, I frankly couldn't afford to buy a solid uke right now),

I'd really love to be the recipient of your "well-loved" Nalu Tenor - I'd definitely be appreciative of having something nicer to continue to learn on. It would be going to a good home (contrary to what the photo above might lead you to believe. God, I feel bad about doing that... :o )

Anyhow, thanks for being generous to everyone at UU - and I hope that whoever the lucky person is that receives it is - that they enjoy it and get lots of use out of it.

thanks Deach!

You are a good man Deach. I was going to ask you on the jam several days ago how much you wanted for that Nalu. But this is a far better thing you are doing with it. I know someone deserving will get it and get quite the upgrade from their current uke.

Ok, I'm throwing my name and uke into the pot.

Here is the video that I submitted for brickenators beginners contest. You can see and hear the disaster for yourself. Some people might say the buzzing and bad strumming was my fault, but after playing for a month or so now, I have to disagree. Its the uke.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aT-mOt5Aqg

yeah, you're thinking, "OH the humanity!"

Its a rogue. Anytime a music store knocks off half the price you know your in trouble. I bought 11 of them for my volleyball team. One actually shipped out broken, so when I called to exchange, the lady laughed and said, "Oh no, we'll just send you another one."

Think of the children.

Here's my p.o.s Uke.....Laminate Hilo Soprano:

Ok so I was half drunk one fine evening & thought I was a bonified luthier....Well I couldnt get the saddle filed down fast enough (Tough Plastic!)....So i said screw it I'll make grooves for each string....You should hear the beatiful buzz tones I created!

http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc83/spazus_maximus/1208091115b.jpg

I have to use pliers on one of the tuners to turn it...haha! The smiley graphics are pretty good so I wont complain bout that!

http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc83/spazus_maximus/smile.jpg

Look at this crappy fretboard!....It's painted & bubbling up....even the frets are painted gold...lol

http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc83/spazus_maximus/bottomfrte.jpg

Not sure if this contest is for those who only have a "Ghetto Uke" & need a decent one or if it's for anyone with a "Ghetto Uke"?....
Unfortunately I dont really NEED another Uke as I have 2 decent Tenors...(one of which I will gladly pass on to someone in need if I win this contest)...I have to keep 2 in the house cause my girlfriend starting playing!

But I sure as heck would enjoy another!

BTW Here is one of my good Ukes.

Dear Deach,

Hey im new to UU. My cousin David Taitingfong (Chamorrodt) introduced me to this site. I heard about the contest and I believe I deserve the "well-loved" solid mahogany Nalu Tenor Uke because there are many damages to my uke lol. I have a solid Kelii all Koa wood uke that is worn out and could break at anytime. It has Ko'olau Gold strings. My uke has been pasted down from uncle to uncle to cousin to me, been used for 10 years, and its now super cracked bad. There are 7 or more cracks on this uke, including the huge one gapping slit at the bottom. my uke is super durty haha, and the top of the frame is slanted i can't believe it. Also if you move the uke up and down you can see its colors switch or change (pretty cool). Deach this is why i believe I deserve the "well-loved" solid mahogany Nalu Tenor Uke. Its only limiting me 4 pictures so if you are needing or want to see more pictures please send me a message. Sorry about the long message but there is a lot about my Uke thanks again.

Sincerly,
LaDaniel Aquiningoc

My little soprano Lanikai has been loved very dearly. It was great to learn on, and my respect for the ukulele grows more and more thanks to it and all the wonderful people who I've had the pleasure of hearing play. I play every day and try to get better, but the idea of having an instrument of some quality makes me get all excited.

Sir Deach,

thanks.

Hmm- hope this works, its a bit technical this photo sharing thing. I actually have 3 ukes, one Godman- cheap but extremely cheerful, my Lanakai concert which I love, and this one, which was my very first. I am very attached to it, as it got me started- imagine my dismay when we were moving house and my son sat on it, snapping off the neck ! I had a poor attempt at repair, then a friend did it again, so it is playable once more. It got a bit bashed up in the process, so I decorated it (not very well lol). Hopefully if the photos have worked you can see close ups of the break!! To add to the playing quality, it still has the original strings.
Oh, and another thing, I have never played a tenor.
Happy Christmas !!

Oh, those philippines-made-ukuleles-meant-for-decoration-but-you-wanted-one-so-bad-you-bought-the-first-one-you-saw ukes... This cost me and my sister a few pesos. I'm not sure how many dollars that's equivalent to, but if I could trade it in for an xtra small I<3Boracay T-shirt, I would. The C string doesn't work, I've gotten splinters from tuning it, and the frets are so low into the wood of the neck, it doesn't matter where I put my fingers for the chords. It sounds terrible. I bought it to feel pacific-y last Christmas. I liked how it looks on my sister's dresser, but it's not going to allow my uke skills to grow at all.

I DID borrow a nicer uke from my friend, and I HAVE learned to play. I'm a relatively okay player, but I've been borrowing his ukulele for so long, I'm this close to naming it. thisssclose. He's probably concerned in reading this. Don't worry, I haven't named it yet.

Anyway, hopefully you'll consider this entry.

hopefully I will be able to bury it :P
paint is chipping off the head, the frets are turning from gold to gray, and the corners of the fretboard are almost completely paint-less and starting to round..
I would really appreciate and sort of sympathy...even sympathy in the form of a new tenor...

...you probably should give it to one of the people with only a display ukulele. But as long as we're showing off our pathetic instruments!

Behold, my Mahalo U-30BU! And my cat, who apparently REALLY wanted to be in the photo shoot!

http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj220/anniekate76/Mahalo/uke_plus_cat.jpg

Some of the snazzier features:

http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj220/anniekate76/Mahalo/DSC00011.jpg

Chipped top, very classy snippet of yellowing receipt paper to prevent buzzing!

http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj220/anniekate76/Mahalo/DSC00012.jpg

No longer completely "ebonized" fretboard!

http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj220/anniekate76/Mahalo/DSC00014.jpg

I made it playable by flipping around the saddle to improve the intonation enough that it sounds OK, though fretted notes are always significantly sharper than open. It's not really showing up in this picture, but the bridge is starting to pull away from the body.

Now, is this my only uke? No, in fact I also have an Oscar Schmidt OU-2E. People in the online ukulele world helped me stop its frets from buzzing and poking my fingers, and I was able to stick its battery compartment back in place inside too. But it just sounds... dead. It sits on my shelf 99% of the time.

I went to the Milwaukee Ukefest, and I brought in my OU-2E to use in the classes because I was afraid that the Mahalo would get me dirty looks, but after using the thing all day, it was such a relief to get out to my car and pull out the ol' blue wonder to try out my new skillz. Though with a twinge of sadness, because I'd stopped by the merchant room and tried out a bunch of other instruments I couldn't afford... cue sad violins here!

So... it's used in all my uke videos. I kind of love it. But it's embarrassing.

Although many of you have pretty ghetto ukes, there was one member who really impressed me. Even though PapaDave doesn't have a uke, he has been on this forum contributing and welcoming new members. His enthusiasm and kindness was a reminder to me of just how cool uke players can be...and he doesn't even have a uke! until now. Congrats Papa Dave!

Hello Deach,
You must be Santa in disquise. I just can't imagine anyone giving away a purty "well loved" solid mahogany Nalu Tenor uke or being so kind and generous. I'm new to the UU so please be sure to check out my intro here (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22548). My ukulele suck's because I don't own one. Good luck to all of you who enter and I hope you catch the wave. Deach... :rock: You Rock, Brother! :rock:


Life without a ukulele is like a home without a family

It suck's!



:shaka: Dave (Pick me!)

Congratulations!

This kind of thing is why I'm so intrigued by the broader ukulele community. These instruments seem to bring out such wonderful things in people.

Congrats, Papa Dave. And, Deach, your generosity is encouraging.

Congratulations PapaDave on your first uke! I'm betting that you're really going to enjoy learning to play on it, it looks very nice. I am so psyched for you!

deach- thanks for the opportunity to 'compete' and I think you made a great choice in PapaDave!

man, I haven't been online enough to notice this contest.... too bad I missed the deadline, I have one ukulele with the back broken off and one that cost $20 canadian that won't stay in tune... but I also have a bunch of guitars, so that makes up for it :)
congrats papa dave, a well-deserved win :)
