View Full Version : Which one of my Kamakas should I sell

I find that I am not playing either my concert or standard Kamakas very much. Both ukes are beautiful and sound great but I just find lately I like playing my tenors more, and with a new tenor coming, I think they will sit more. So I was thinking I have too many ukes not being played and I should sell one of them. I first thought, sell the standard since it is the farthest from a tenor, then I thought my KoAloha PS is pretty close to a super concert, so then I should sell the concert and keep the standard because it is a dlx and so different than anything else I own.

Sell both, if you're not playing either. I might keep the deluxe soprano, as they are not too common, if you had to keep one.

Keep them both. You'll probably regret selling either. If I had to choose, I'd keep the soprano.

Keep the soprano. The concerts are $10,400 a dozen. You can get them anytime... : )

Keep the concert, I already have one of those, *I* WILL TAKE THE STANDARD! :drool:

Seriously, keep the soprano because it's a Kamaka, it's stunning, it has a piece of the soul of Hawaii in it, and you have a ready market for the concert, which is rather plain but so is mine, and I adore it.

Definitely keep the soprano. The concert is nice too though and the only one you have.

I think in time you may end up giving both of them a new home. You'll be playing your Moore Bettah. I'd probably keep the one that's the most different from the one you are getting. (But I'm not one to play different types.)

No, Thom just got two Kamakas. He doesn't need another one as badly as I do. Sell the standard to me!

Well, you know if you sell either of them you'll eventually regret it. But you have no room to store them. I feel your pain, and I have the perfect solution. I will sacrifice some of the space in my office/uke room and store them for you. So, just send them both to me and in a few years when you decide you want them back they'll be waiting for you...

But everyone knows that jokes come in threes *, and so do Kamakas!

$800.00 on the soprano. You have $800.00. Do you hear $900.00? Who will go $900.00 on the nice little Yamaha mini-guitar outfit? Oh, that's right, Kamaka, not Yamaha. Who will go $900.00 on the nice little...what's that...it's a what? Who'll go $900.00 on the nice Kamaka yookoolaylay?

I'd sell that concert and keep the soprano. No doubt. It is very rare to see one of those special sopranos. This is the first pic of one I have seen in a long time. I live in Hawaii, and those are still hard to come by.

ooooohhhhh. You're naughty. :p well, I just paid 1000 for a 2nd hand custom 4A koa LoPrinzi soprano which is at least on par with this one. This one looks in great order though...hmmm. I'm thinking if the retail for a standard is 695, then surely, even with the rosette, bindings and gloss finish it couldn't cost much more than 1000 brand new would it? I wonder if Landshark will tell us what they cost new? :confused:

Well done on selling the concert. I disagree the regret posts. Surely the goal is to get the finite number of ukuleles into as many hands as possible.

There should be an international programme to send a ukulele to every world dictator. I bet at least one would crack.
