These are just a few testers.. I still have my collection...every two months, I get about 40 ukes to test...I get to evaluate and gain knowledge which ones sound good and why..
My dream is to get to test all mainlands and such that the mainland vendors have....

Very, very nice, Stan. I was going to ask "Why no Kamaka six string?", but I guess you already answered that.:)

And here I thought that you were "squeaking by" with a couple of ukes. Impressive.

So please tell. I know that a parent loves all his or her children equally, but what are your favorites?

Hey Guys, Those are "tester" ukes that our International Man of Mystery i.e. UAS Enabler Extraordinaire gets to play with. His "personal" collection remains a mystery.

Aloha Danny,
Those were about less than half of the ukes for my friends ukulele shop he brought over this time for a week to play and test..
But the Koa Works is mine..don't know how to make a video or sound sample yet... It's high grade Koa and birdseye spruce top.
There is a sister one to mine that was selling used on Hawaii's craigslist for 2650.00 wow...only two that exist that the Rich told
me about..it is so sweet yet the spruce top adds the highs...it's definetly a finger pickers dream...I ordered it custom built built in
mind of being from a guitar background...Mahalo Nui for the Nice Words Bruddah... Stan

Sounds like a fun time playing with all those ukes. By chance have you ever had your hands on a Mana'e ukulele. I just found out about them on ukulele friend. Built on Molokai, and ever since I have been there I have been loving just about every thing I can find from that place.

Holy. Moly.

I became aware I was reading this thread with my mouth open - jaw dropping is the expression lol.

wowser - beautiful ukulele's regardless of testers or not, you can almost feel the power of the tree in the grain of the wood in some of those.
