Hi UUer's -

A couple longshots here but I'm interested in buying a Kepasa Gypsy Rose or a Larrivee concert. I like really the large-ish body of both ukes and and the Kepasa has a cutaway which I really like. Anyone have one of these they're interested in selling? Thanks! - Mary

Larrivee concerts are extremely rare - only a few were made in 1999.

Larrivee sopranos are more common - they're what Larrivee mostly made. And the sopranos have a relatively long scale at 14-1/8". The concerts though have a full 15" scale and have a very very balanced tone from string to string, in my experience.

I know they didn't make many - but I have hope that someday one will surface for me! It's good to know that the sopranos have a longish scale though since I may end up with one of those eventually.

I am with you. I really like the unique shape of the Kepasa Gypsy Rose.

I may end up ordering one from Kepasa eventually, but I'm not quite ready to go down that road yet.
