So, if you want to play duets (alone) or just would rather listen to someone (something) else play. This is for you.

Actually this is pretty cool. Damn thing plays better than me (but with somewhat less feeling). :)

WOW! The perfect Xmas Present for someone who 'has it all'??

Kinda cute! I think it would need more than 50 songs tho at that price! Did you click on his 'other items'? ALso got one for Guitar & Banjo & other instruments as well!!

Thanks for putting us onto it!

That is REALLY cool, :O but also REALLLLLYYYY expensive, would be cheaper to get a Kamaka and learn yourself, some people have more money than sense!

I'd rather enjoy a hobbyist ukulele player perform, than view a mechanized zombie. Live music is my cup of tea. It was also John Phillips Souza's:

That thing (or copies of it) seem to pop up every so often on epay. I've taken to calling it the ukulele torture device because it kind of resembles an iron maiden built for uke...

My question is: How would that thing stay in tune from day-to-day?
