A Mainland concert...

...or a banjo uke...

...or if everything goes to plan for Mike it will be both! Cool!



What is everybody planning on splashing the cash on?...

Lumber to build for myself. I've set up a professional Luthiers shop and I'm going full time. I have 4 Ukes,- 2 spoken for, 2 guitars, 4 basses- 2 spoken for and one 5 string banjo.
I'll post some pictures soon.

Probably strings. I've let some of my ukes go far too long...

But in terms of ukes, I'm having a crisis (..uhh, not in the Top Gear way, for anyone who gets that joke). I want a concert. I want mahogany. I'd like a Koaloha somewhere in my stash because that was my first uke, and I'm sentimental towards the brand. I want a Pohaku. I want a 6 string perhaps. I want a Collings.

So how do I combine all of those? Would a Pohaku be better for me than a Collings? Either or both could be mahogany? Would Peter build a 6 string concert? And where does Koaloha fit in this picture?

Decisions, decisions... but at least I found my perfect tenor, the Kanilea superconcert. I didn't say it was a tenor, I said it was my perfect tenor. :)

I'm saving for a banjo uke to go with the clawhammer I'm working on. This could take a while...:o

Aargh, I've had the mono one with the high tech CompactFlash for a little over a month. Figures they'd come out with this new version. Can you say GAS!!

I am buying a KoAlana Concert Ukulele with a pickup and engraving.

For me, most likely a Makala Dolphin. I can't even play my first ukulele yet, I just got it the other day. I chose a concert size Kala Koa based on a good size for an airline carry-on, but now that I have it I hate the thought of it getting damaged. So, I'm thinking of getting a good beater for trips and camping and such. Besides, don't I need something to keep at the office anyway ;)?

A solid mahogany soprano. Most likely an Ohana sk-25 or sk-35G

No more ukes for awhile! Have to save up/ sell stuff to afford a Motu hybrid interface.

I'd like a purple Dolphin eventually. There's a good chance I could get one (if I could find one) for Valentines. Much better chance of that vs the mango...

lol, well I just randomly ordered my Ohana CK-75CG. I just turned my brain off (thinking about money).... you see the beauty is its not in stock yet in Elderly so I ordered and thought.... I can worry about the money later... I'll just order it.. forget about it and then have an amazing day when it arrives.... the next day I may be white when I see my overdraft though..... sometimes its great just to do things and not think about the consequences =P (my wife WILL kill me)

I don't have anything to plug in right now and I'm considering the Kala archtop, or maybe eleuke. I may have to employ the one in, one out philosophy and unload a current uke. But, I went to bed last night dreaming about the U-Bass. I don't play bass, but I've seen these a few times and it makes me want to learn.

Late June or July, I would love to get a Mele mahogany pineapple with brown Worth strings, low G. (I called it a mango once...wrong fruit.) Mellow mango...no, mellow pineapple. Not that I don't love the ones I have.

I just received my order of a purple dolphin and a pink dolphin for my daughters. I ordered them from Michael at MGM. I needed to wait a few weeks for them to come in but I received them Friday. Give him a call. He may have a few left. Good Luck.

As for me, I'm saving to build something this summer then I will be saving for a Martin tenor then I will be done I can't think past that..

I already ordered it. It shipped out and now I'm just waiting for it to arrive. I'm so excited!

I'm already eyeing up the fluke I want for my birthday in Aug.

The next thing I buy will probably be a pint :)

The next instrument I buy will either be a concert of some sort (maybe a Mainland), or a mandolin

Next thing I want to buy is a reasonable tenor. looking around the 150 mark or cheaper as I can't warrant spending more till I am rippin it up on the ones I have. Any suggestions welcome, swaying towards kala but really dont know enough about ukes to make an educated decision.

Got a Ko'olau CE-1 (solid body electric) on its way via UkeRepublic, but not the regular one you see with a mahogany body and koa top... this one is Hawaiian Ash with ebony everything :)

After I recover from this.. I'll be waiting for Kala to come out with the Acacia Baritone fullforce (I've heard May or June..).

Cases and hangers. I've been neglecting both for some time, and catching up will cost the price of a new ukulele.

I just made the decision to curb my instrument acquisition syndrome for a little while and purchase a puppy. I'm super excited about it :D I'm thinking I'll wait a month into my new schedule to ensure that I have as much attention time for a new puppy as I think I will, then pick him up around the beginning of April if everything looks right. I can't freaking wait.

I have tremendous respect for Kiwaya. I had a Kiwaya KTS 4 for a while - light as a feather, VERY responsive, and very loud and deep sounding.

(I sold it because I found a custom that is not necessarily better but that somehow captured my heart.)

I would recommend it for a finger style player or someone with a loud voice - otherwise you won't hear your singing over the uke. Fantastic instrument overall.

And my next purchase: A Kaniliea Concert... or maybe a KoAloha pineapple...

Amd if it doesn't work out, you can sell or trade the puppy in the marketplace!

(Kidding...kidding...)

(Don't let my two standard poodles hear me say that...)

Getting an Ohana all solid mahogany Baritone from UkeRepublic in the next couple of weeks :)

Then debating between a Koa or a Flower-etched Fluke Tenor. Leaning towards the Flower laser etched one to bring along on travels and leave my Mahogany Tenor at home :D

With respect to the Kiwaya, you nailed down the 2 provisos.

What I like about pineapple sopranos is how easy (for me) it is to sing with them. For that 20's kind of playing/singing a great standard is fine. But with a really loud, compressed soprano, I have to tone things down with playing, strumming, soften things evn with chordal melodic interplay.

To completely come clean, I could recommend the standard Kiwaya looking for THAT sound, but not for myself, and would opt for the pineapple. To go even further, standards at this point get on my nerves, overall, in the longhaul, and even a loud quality standard...the value of that I could only temporarily appreciate.
