View Full Version : For Sale: Tenor Wolfelele (built from kit)

Howdy all,

I've got another one that I'd like to send to a home where it will get played more often.

This is a tenor Wolfelele which I built from a kit. Wolfelele is the brand name of ukulele kits built by a luthier in Quebec. These kits are very simple to build and seem geared towards schools and hobbyists.

I enjoyed building this one, and it's a relatively good instrument too. I am no luthier, but I feel I did a good job putting it together. It is not very well sanded and is unfinished.

I put Aquila Nylguts on it to give it more punch. It plays pretty easy and has good intonation. You could easily change strings to low g or wound strings as it has a zero-fret and no real nut. The action does get rather high as you move up the frets, though it is certainly still playable (in one of the attached music clips, i'm playing up around the 8th fret and it sounds quite nice).

In addition, I am including a "modified" uke crazy case. The modification involved me using knife to cut out a piece of the case so that the uke would fit. I tried to show it one of the pictures.

I'm looking to get $110 CDN/USD + actual shipping.

(The kit itself costs $100 + shipping, and I'm including the case and the upgraded strings.)

Here are some pics and sound clips:

thanks for looking. PM me if you're interested. If you want to trade, lemme know what you've got!

We got one of these kits also, the only problem was that they use a 0 fret which buzzes (easy to replace with a normal nut), and the plywood top is rather dead sounding (especially considering the cost!). Should be easy enough to replace the top though, and its a handy uke

Would you post it abroad? And are there part exchange items you're after?

I would certainly consider posting to the UK - However, after a quick check, it looks like it may well cost upwards of $50 CDN, and possibly quite a bit more, to ship.

If you're willing to pay that kind of postage, I'll look into it further and see if I can find the cheapest rate.

TBH, $50 would be a deal breaker.

I might well consider it if you could get a cheaper (surface mail?) rate. Time is no issue.
