View Full Version : Keychains?

03-21-2010, 05:39 PM
Okay, first I apologize for the noob question, but as a beginner but enthusiastic ukulele player I was wondering what people hang from their ukes. In many videos I have watched, I see what appears to be keychains attached to the top of the neck, that hang from the uke, i.e. a rubber chicken on one of AG's ukes in few videos. All I was wondering is, is it just regular keychains that people put on, if not what are they, and maybe some sites or ideas that people here use. Thanks!

Basically it's whatever you want. Helpful thread and a video:

There was a contest a while back called "Bling Fo' Yo' Thing. Some people posted their entries:

Cool idea thanks to Aldrine. I tried it, but in all honesty, seemed like a nuisance and could hear it rattle when i played which was off putting. Go for it, though.

I use phone strap charms on mine because they normally attach through thin chord instead of a noisy key chain. I like buying them from http://www.strapya-world.com/
I need to find a new one actually. Mmmm, shopping time. :D

I found a small straw hulu dancer holding a felt ukulele at Lightening Joe's Guitar Heaven in Arroyo Grande, CA that looks perfect on a uke.

I actually hang a uke from my key chain!
