Was looking but didn't find... since UU has many owners of Bradfors's fine instruments, I'd like to propose a group of owners to compare models, share photos, & otherwise heap praise on this great builder of fine instruments. Do I just create the group? Or is that a moderator's task??

Group created:

Join & post your thoughts, musings, photos & generally heap praise on the creator of your "precious" instruments.

You just want to make the rest of us jealous. (g)



(And are you still in the Hartford area? Did you ever find a Ukulele group?)

Not really... just wishing to "help" my fellow UAS "sufferers". And.. though I'm only in Hartford for another two weeks, I never really found a local group, at least none that meets during the week. I will be moving to a new gig in February in Schaumburg, IL, so hope to find some CHUG members to jam with as I will be in the Chigago area through the rest of the Winter & Spring now!

I'd join...my soprano is taking shape right now in Brad's shop. What will we do in the group?

In a group it seems you mostly post photos, then forget you're in a group! But it would be great to have a lot of photos of Brad's work available in one spot to help new potential customers see the wide variety of styles he can do, and the quality of the workmanship.

I'm in. I've had one of his soprano's since last summer and love it.

Count me as one of those that don't know what we'll do once there is a group...

For those of you who have dropped by my table at the local ukulele festivals the last couple of years, you have met Chedda. For those of you that have not had the opportunity, here is Chedda K. Rat, my shop manager and the brains of the operation. Chedda is quite well known in Cannon Beach and has been with us for over twenty years. Carol, Chedda and I just want to say thanks very much for all of your support, I have been having a ball, and the main reason for that is the wonderful group of customers that I get to work with.

Brad, where'd Chedda get his chair? I want one of those...bit bigger, of course.

As the owner of the business, do you generally ratify the decisions of management?

We found that chair in Maui last September, Chedda was so excited.

Did Chedda jump off a pirate ship--is that why he has the Jolly Roger carpet?

I've played with Chedda's mini uke in person! Didn't meet Chedda, though :(

Gmoney. I'm in Geneva, about 20 miles from Schaumburg. Plenty of uu members around.

I love myDonaldson. I bought it thru ukeeku Tim, as it was his sample for UWC 2011. Vintage S. I signed up for the group. Good idea.

I too am on Brad's production schedule, and waiting patiently. It would be great to see photos of completed builds and those in progress, and have the new owners discuss specs, custom options etc. I think I have my specs pretty well figured out, but it would be very helpful to learn what others have selected.

For some reason - I can't find your 'group' . . . did it get formed?

I own two Donaldsons . . .
a sweet soprano pineapple and a concert. Both Koa master grade. Nice instruments.
